Numerical input
The input field for numerical values is limited by the internal numeric display.
This numeric display allows motion paths in the range of 200 m at a resolution of 0.1 µm.
By changing the internal conversion factors in a specification file, the input of positions, feeds, etc., may also be used in different units than mm or inch.
Example
Numerical values as integers or decimal point inputs:
- Decimals are generally separated by a ".” whereby leading zeroes may be omitted.
- Depending on the configuration and programming, inputs for lengths and position values are given in millimetres or inches; angles are entered in degrees [°] or gons [gon].
Input format:
Values: [µm] | Inputs: [mm] |
---|---|
0,1 | 0.0001 or .0001 |
1 | 0.001 or .001 |
10 | 0.01 or .01 |
100 | 0.1 or .1 |
1000 | 1.0 or .1 |
10000 | 10.0 or .10 |
100000 | 100.0 or .100 |
1000000 | 1000.0 or .1000 |
Example
Numerical inputs as hexadecimal numbers:
- These numbers are enclosed in '...' and start with the character combination 16#, 0x or alternatively H. Following leading zeros or blanks are ignored.
- The characters A to F or a to f can be used for an additional six numerals.
Format:'16#<A...F, a..f, 0..9>' oder '0x<A...F, a..f, 0..9>'or 'H<A...F, a..f, 0..9>'
Input format:
'16#FA1B' | is equivalent to decimal value 64027 |
'0x0ED2' | is equivalent to decimal value 3794 |
'H1869f' | is equivalent to decimal value 99999 |
Example
Numerical inputs as binary numbers (dual numbers):
- These numbers are enclosed in '...' and start with the character combination 2#, 02# or alternatively B. Following leading zeros or blanks are ignored.
- The two digits are displayed as zero (0) and one (1).
Format: '2#<0..1>' or '02#<0..1>' or 'B<0..1>'
Input format:
'2#1010011' | is equivalent to decimal value 83 |
'02#010011' | is equivalent to decimal value 19 |
'B11101010' | is equivalent to decimal value 234 |
Example
Numerical inputs as octal numbers:
- These numbers are enclosed in '...' and start with the character combination 8# or 08#. Following leading zeros or blanks are ignored.
- The digits 0 to 7 are used for representation.
Format: '8#<0..7>' or '08#<0..7>'
Input format:
'8#12345' | is equivalent to decimal value 5349 |
'08#0107302' | is equivalent to decimal value 36546 |
