P-CHAN-00053

Designation of the main spindle in the NC channel

Description

Besides the logical axis number, a name must be assigned to the main spindle by which it can be addressed in the subroutine. This parameter therefore assigns an axis name to the main spindle. The axis name is freely selectable, but the first character must be an 'S'.

main_spindle_ax_nr     6
