Axis-specific variables (V.A.)
The code for axis-specific variables is "V.A. ...".
Attention
V.A. variables can only be programmed for linear and rotary axes but not for spindles.
V.A.<var_name> | Meaning | Data type | Unit of | Enabled access |
MENT.X | Virtual coordinate of the previous NC block (see Section Mirroring G20-G23) | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
PROG.X | Programmed coordinate of the previous NC block During active contour rotation (#ROTATION) the variable supplies the coordinate value mapped onto the machine axes. | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
ABS.X | Absolute coordinate of the previous NC block or current absolute coordinate after NC command #CHANNEL INIT each in the currently active coordinate system | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
ACS.ABS.X | Current actual axis position in the present coordinate system without offsets. | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
ACS.ABS.X | Current actual position during active transformation mapped onto the machine axes. | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
-SWE.X | Current effective negative software limit switch | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
+SWE.X | Current effective positive software limit switch | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
-SWE_MDS.X | Configured negative software limit switch (acc. to P-AXIS-00177). | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
+SWE_MDS.X | Configured positive software limit switch (acc. to P-AXIS-00178). | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
REF.X | Machine reference point (only assigned after successful machine reference search) | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
BZP.X | Reference point offset | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
PZV.X | Clamp position offset | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
MESS.X | After measurement run completed, supplies the axis-specific measured value in the coordinate system in which measurement took place. The value includes all offsets in the calculation With 2.5D: ACS values or with CS / TRAFO: PCS values | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
Release Note
As of Build V2.11.2020.07 the axis-specific variables V.A.MEAS.ACS.VALUE and V.A.MEAS.PCS.VALUE supplement the variable V.A.MESS. The additional variables supply the measured value both in the axis coordinate system including all offsets and also the measured value in the programming coordinate system without offsets.
MEAS.ACS.VALUE.X | After measurement run completed, supplies the axis-specific measured value in the axis coordinate system (ACS). The value contains all offsets. | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
MEAS.PCS.VALUE.X | After measurement run completed, supplies the axis-specific measured value in the programming coordinate system (PCS). The value does not contain any offsets | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
MOFFS.X | Measurement offset | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
MERF.X | Measurement run completed? If yes, then 1 | Boolean | 0 , 1 | R |
MEIN.X | Included measuring offset | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
RERF.X | Homing completed ? If yes, then 1 | Boolean | 0 , 1 | R |
MANUAL_OFFSETS.X | Motion path in manual mode. Only practical in conjunction with NC command #GET MANUAL OFFSETS. | Real | [mm, inch] | R |
MODE.X | Current axis mode | Integer | - | R |
MODULO_VALUE.X | Modulo range | Real | [°] | R |
LOG_AX_NR.X | Logical axis number of an axis | Integer | - | R |
AX_LIST_NAME.X | Configured axis name (acc. to P-AXIS-00297) | String | - | R |
ENCODER2_VALUE.X | Current value of a second encoder (optional) in the drive | Real | [mm, inch] | R | |
MIRROR.X | Mirror status of axis | Integer | - | R | |
WCS.X MCS.X | Conversion between machine coordinates (MCS) and workpiece coordinates (WCS). Only practical in conjunction with NC commands #WCS TO MCS and #MCS TO WCS | Real | [mm, inch] | R/W |
When strings are used for axis designation (e.g. X_SLIDE, see also Sec. 3.1) these axis names are used to identify the variables.
