Speed control with encoder

I was trying to follow the youtube video ( to setup my encoder. I was able to find the proper wiring to make the position signal positive when manually rotating the shaft CCW as pointed out in the video. However, when I tried to turn the piano switch 5 down and do the speed control with encoder, the motor vibrated and motion terminal automatically disconnected. If I did not turn the piano switch 5 down the motor rotates fine. 

I am using SOLO UNO V2. These are the motor and the encoder I use. I also attach the screenshot of the motion panel here. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your help!

Hello @zang0034,

The PIN#5 of the piano switch can stay Down for all the time and specially when you turn ON the system, so no need to move it up and down, as we want to operate in closed-loop and also the Motor Identification is not needed to happen multiple times ( only once as long as the motor is the same).

Let me know if you have other questions and sorry for the delay.
