Drive supported execution of the CNC based homing (P-AXIS-00386)

P-AXIS-00386

Drive supported execution of the CNC based homing (SERCOS)

Description

By default CNC-controlled homing for SERCOS drive is done completely in the control, the drive internal positions are not altered.

If the drive supports the SERCOS command S-0-146 (CNC-controlled reference point travel), this parameter can enable the command S-0-146 for a CNC-controlled reference point travel. The advantage of this method is that after homing is finished the drive internal positions are referenced, too, so that for example drive internal software limit switches can be used.

The reference position used for homing is P-AXIS-00152. This value is transferred to the drive during homing

SERCOS

Remarks

This parameter is actually not supported for spindles.

In addition to command S-0-146 the drive must support the following commands:

  • S-0-171 (Calculate displacement)
  • S-0-172 (Displacement to referenced system)
  • S-0-191 (Cancel reference point procedure)
