Gear change (G112)

G112                            Gear change                                                                         (non-modal)

The function G112 can switch gear stages for single path axes. G112 is also available for spindle axes. However, the special characteristics described in Section Gear change (G112) must be taken into consideration.

With axes which have no real gear, this functionality can be used to switch various axis parameters. For example, controller intensification and following error monitoring can be matched to one another in a separate parameter set and can then be selected by the "gear number” defined in the NC program.



G112 may not be programmed with a path preparation function in the same NC block.
