Spindle-specific variables (V.SPDL., V.SPDL_PROG.)

The identifier for variables that permit access to configuration-specific spindle data is "V.SPDL. ...".

The identifier for spindle data assigned by programming is "V.SPDL_PROG. …".

Programing Example

prg_example

A check is first made before programming a spindle whether it is known in the channel:

N10 G90 Y0

N20 $IF EXIST[V.SPDL.LOG_AX_NR.S] == TRUE

N30   M3 S1000        (Spindle S at speed 1000 rpm)

N40 $ELSE

N50 #MSG ["Spindle S is not present!"] (Output message and stop)

N55   M0

N60 $ENDIF

...

M30
