Axisspecific variables (V.A.)
The code for axisspecific variables is "V.A. ...".
The axisspecific identifier can be specified in 2 variants:
1: Axis name according to channel list (represented with “X” as example below)
2: Axis index [i] according to channel list where <i>: 0…31
Example:
V.A.ABS.X or V.A.ABS[0]
Attention
V.A. variables can only be programmed for linear and rotary axes but not for spindles.
V.A.<var_name>  Meaning  Data type  Unit for  Permitted access 
MENT.X  Virtual coordinate of the previous NC block (see Section Mirroring G20G23)  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
PROG.X  Programmed coordinate of the previous NC block During active contour rotation (#ROTATION) the variable supplies the coordinate value mapped onto the machine axes.  Real  [mm, inch]  R

REF.X  Machine reference point (only assigned after successful machine reference search)  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
BZP.X  Reference point offset  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
PZV.X  Clamp position offset  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
MESS.X  After measurement run completed, supplies the axisspecific measured value in the coordinate system in which measurement took place. The value includes all offsets in the calculation With 2.5D: ACS values or with CS / TRAFO: PCS values  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
Release Note
As of Build V2.11.2020.07, the axisspecific variables V.A.MEAS.ACS.VALUE and V.A.MEAS.PCS.VALUE supplement the variable V.A.MESS. The additional variables supply the measured value both in the axis coordinate system including all offsets and also the measured value in the programming coordinate system without offsets.
MEAS.ACS.VALUE.X  After measurement run completed, supplies the axisspecific measured value in the axis coordinate system (ACS). The value contains all offsets.  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
MEAS.PCS.VALUE.X  After measurement run completed, supplies the axisspecific measured value in the programming coordinate system (PCS). The value does not contain any offsets  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
MOFFS.X  Measurement offset  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
MERF.X  Measurement run completed? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
MEIN.X  Included measuring offset  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
RERF.X  Homing completed? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
MANUAL_OFFSETS.X  Motion path in manual mode. Only practical in conjunction with NC command #GET MANUAL OFFSETS.  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
MODE.X  Current axis mode  Integer    R 
MODULO_VALUE.X  Modulo range  Real  [°]  R 
LOG_AX_NR.X  Logical axis number of an axis  Integer    R 
AX_LIST_NAME.X  Configured axis name (acc. to PAXIS00297)  String    R 
AXIS_DEACTIVATED.X  Variable indicates whether the axis was parked via the HLI. Available as of V2.11.2813  Boolean    R 
ENCODER2_VALUE.X  Current value of a second encoder (optional) in the drive  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
MIRROR.X  Mirror status of axis  Integer    R 
WCS.X MCS.X  Convert between machine coordinates (MCS) and workpiece coordinates (WCS). Only practical in conjunction with the NC commands #WCS TO MCS and #MCS TO WCS  Real  [mm, inch]  R/W 
DIAMETER_PROG.ABS.X  Supplies the value of PAXIS00058 if the following applies:  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
DIAMETER_PROG.REL.X  Supplies the value of PAXIS00059 if the following applies:  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
CROSS_COMP_INIT.X  Is cross compensation initialised for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
PLANE_COMP_INIT.X  Is plane compensation initialised for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
LEAD_COMP_INIT.X  Is leadscrew error compensation activated for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
TEMP_COMP_INIT.X  Is temperature compensation initialised for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
CROSS_COMP_ACTIVE.X  Is cross compensation active for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
PLANE_COMP_ACTIVE.X  Is plane compensation active for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
LEAD_COMP_ACTIVE.X  Is leadscrew error compensation active for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
TEMP_COMP_ACTIVE.X  Is temperature compensation active for the axis? If yes, then 1  Boolean  0 , 1  R 
 
As of CNC Build V2.11.2810 the following V.A. variables of the current compensation values are available.  
LEAD_COMP_CURR.X  Current compensation value of LSEC for the axis  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
 
CROSS_COMP_CURR.X  Current compensation value of cross compensation for the axis  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
 
PLANE_COMP_CURR.X  Current compensation value of plane compensation for the axis  Real  [mm, inch]  R 
 
TEMP_COMP_CURR.X  Current compensation value of temperature compensation for the axis  Real  [mm, inch]  R 

When strings are used for axis designation (e.g. X_SLIDE, see also Sec. 3.1) these axis names are used to identify the variables.
