CNC-controlled error reaction (P-AXIS-00254)


CNC-controlled error reaction for gantry axes


In case of an error, an intelligent drive executes an error reaction independently in most cases and reports this to the CNC. The CNC can then stop other axes in the gantry system running with an incorrect axis.

With gantry axes it is not allowed for one axis in the gantry system to stop independently. For this reason the CNC can execute a controlled stop of the complete gantry system in the event of an axis error. The function must be set for the master and the slave axes. A check is made whether the settings for master and slave axes are identical and as required, they are corrected in the slave axes.

Default value


Drive types



In the case of a CNC-controlled error response, the axis is stopped at the specified emergency stop acceleration
P-AXIS-00003 (a_emergency).

This parameter can be used with SERCOS and CANopen drives.

In addition a SERCOS drive must be parameterised so that it does not execute any independent (or only delayed) error response (see EcoDrive P-0-0117).
