Distance resolution of measurement system (numerator, P-AXIS-00234)


Distance resolution of measurement (numerator)


The distance resolution of the measuring system is entered in the dimension [increment/0.1 µm] for translatory axes or [increment/0.0001°] for rotary axes. The number of increments must be entered in 'getriebe[i].wegaufz' (numerator), the size of the motion path in [0.1µm] for translatory axes or in [0.0001°] for rotary axes in 'getriebe[i].wegaufn' (denominator).

These entries are not taken over when the axis parameter list is updated. A controller reboot is required to update.

Note that when a distance resolution is greater than 1, the motion range is restricted to less than (-MAX(UNS32)… +MAX(UNS32)) [µm/10-³ °].

If wegaufz is 0, the CNC generates the warning 110386 and corrects the parameter to the value 1.

If P-AXIS-00234/ P-AXIS-00233 are used, the parameters P-AXIS-00362 and P-AXIS-00363 must be set to 1.

Recommendation: It is recommended to set the path resolution using the parameters P-AXIS-00362 and P-AXIS-00363 .
