Home gantry slave axis relative to encoder overflow (P-AXIS-00393)

P-AXIS-00393

Home gantry slave axis relative to encoder overflow

Description

When this parameter is set to 1, a gantry slave axis is homed with the following method: At the moment when the master axis position is set the offset of the slave axis relatively to the encoder overflow is determined and the slave axis position is set to P-AXIS-00152 + 'distance to encoder overflow'. No homing movement takes place for this axis.

The mechanical axis position of the slave axis can be shifted by P-AXIS-00354.

Remarks

This parameter can only be used if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The slave axis encoder delivers an absolute position within one motor revolution.
  • The slave axis can never be moved more than half a motor revolution in positive or negative direction with respect to the master axis.

If these conditions are not fulfilled, the machine may be damaged!
