Mechanical movement distance outside the software limit switches (P-AXIS-00459)

P-AXIS-00459

Mechanical movement distance outside the software limit switches

Description

This parameter sets up the mechanical movement distance outside the software limit switches. The mechanical movement distance of the axis can be determined together with the position of the limit switches. This value is used to automatically handle the overflow of an absolute encoder:

When the position calculated from the absolute position of the drive and the position offset set up, P-AXIS-00341 (read_abs_pos_offset) is outside the mechanical movement range of the axis, it is assumed that an overflow of the absolute encoder has occurred. To compensate for this overflow the calculated position is corrected by the value range of the absolute encoder.
