Classification of channel parameters

Data of the MachineDataBlock for the ControlDataProcessing (abbr. SDA_MDS or channel parameters) contain application-specific configuration data.

This list defines cross-axis system parameters of the controller. In addition, the default axis and spindle configuration is defined in the NC channel. The desired technology commands and their coding are also defined for transfer to the PLC. The units of measurement and the dimensions of the motion paths entered in the NC program are specified.

The array indices to be specified for the axis data correspond to the indexing of the channel-internal axes and axis groups.

Value ranges of parameters may also defined by stating a limit resulting from the data width, e.g. MAX(UNS32), etc.
