How to prevent pier crash: Ap1100 with AE #APCC #Absolute_Encoders

Hi,

I am a new owner of an AP1100 which has user-installed absolute encoders. I just polar-aligned my scope on a new pier and now need to set up limits. How do I prevent the camera end from crashing into the pier (slewing to images or accidentally)? Is there a way to manually slew close to a crash and set a limit such that it will not crash? Or is there a better way? Since crashes could occur at certain DEC.
