Is this posible?
Usually in handheld setup per example the DP want have the iris without motor for set it on camera checking by EVF, so the focus puller it’s with WCU4 + LDA only with Focus motor but want know the iris value. can I use a Cforce motor in “passive mode” by firmware upgrade or any other solution? Thanks.

If working on the Alexa mini and WCU-4, you can try to calibrate the motor, but not assigning the motor to any control unit. In this case, the cforce mini should work as encoder only. There will always be a "ground" torque of the motor gearing though.
