  • a displacement member configured to translate within the surgical instrument;

    a motor coupled to the displacement member to translate the displacement member;

    a control circuit coupled to the motor;

    a position sensor coupled to the control circuit, the position sensor configured to monitor a position of the displacement member; and

    wherein the control circuit is configured to;
