Name of process data element 'start measurement command'


This parameter defines the cyclical process data in which the bit to start the measurement command 1 for SERCOS drives is transferred to the drive.

When one of the real-time control bits of the SERCOS control word is used, this parameter has to be set to 'S-0-0134' or 'S_0_0134' and in all other cases to the name of the process data element in the process data configuration.

When this parameter is used, the number of the bit used for transmission has to be entered in P-AXIS-00700.
