Drive-independent switching of drive functions

As opposed to SERCOS-specific commands as described in Section Writing and reading drive parameters and commands, the following commands permit the drive-independent setting of drive parameters. The parameters can only be written synchronously, i.e. the command is executed at interpolator level at the time of processing. In the default setting, the #DRIVE command is executed in parallel to the following processing of the NC program, i.e. program processing is not stopped. The "WAIT” parameter can be used to stop interpolation until the drive function is completed.

The command #DRIVE WAIT SYN can be used to check the successful switching of the drive function at a later time.
