Classification of compensation data

Compensation data for the compensation process is filed for each axis in compensation value lists (achskw*.lis).

The following compensation processes are available:

These compensation value lists are read in during controller start-up or they can be updated at a later time.

Some specific entries must be present in the start-up description in order to signal the compensation table to the control system [STUP].

The compensation value list consists of a list header in which general data is entered and the list body in which the compensation algorithm is parameterised and which contains the actual compensation table.

Compensation is activated in the associated axis machine record:
