Saving and deleting of tool data (P-CHAN-00103)

P-CHAN-00103

Save and delete tool data in an external tool management

Description

Tool data of the current tool (e.g. wear parameters) can be modified via variable access (V.G.WZ_AKT...) in the NC program.

For saving, this data is written back to external tool management each time a new tool is selected. If a tool was programmed in the previous NC program, D0 (tool deselection) is implicitly requested at Program restart. With this request the data of the tool last used is transmitted back at the same time to external tool management. This ensures that no modified tool data is lost.

This saving by implicitly initiating a D0 at program start can be achieved by setting the parameter to 1. This flag is only evaluated if an external tool management is present (P-CHAN-00016).

Parameter

d_clear_to_wzv

Data type

BOOLEAN

Data range

0/1

Dimension

----

Default value

0

Remarks

This parameter is only used in TwinCAT systems.

On reset, no implicit D0 is initiated. This means that the data of the tool last used is only saved on the next program start.
