Channel parameter

Further entries which are made in the channel parameters are required for programming spindles in the NC program [1].

In this case, each spindle to be addressed by this channel must be declared. For this purpose, a string (axis name) and the corresponding logical axis number are defined for each spindle. The axis names of the spindle can be freely selected but they must always start with "S" (e.g. S, S_MAIN, S1, SPINDEL_1).

In addition, the synchronisation modes must be defined spindle-specific for the spindle M functions (M3, M4, M5 and M19) and for the S word. The appropriate meaning of M3, M4, M5 and M19 must then be switched (P-CHAN-00098).

Notice

notice

The synchronisation method of the S function has no effect if a spindle M function is programmed in the NC block. Synchronisation only takes place based on the settings for the spindle M function. The following priorities apply:

M19 > M3/M4/M5 > S

If the spindles are to be considered in the "Production time calculation” simulation mode, the data required for this can also be parameterised spindle-specific.

To ensure that this remains compatible with previous programming, one spindle must be declared as the main spindle (P-CHAN-00051, P-CHAN-00053). The main spindle can then be programmed together with specific standard functionalities (e.g. tapping and gear changing etc.) in the conventional DIN syntax. Even if there is only one spindle in the system, it must be configured as the main spindle.

The optional gear changing function for the main spindle (P-CHAN-00052) is also enabled by setting a flag.

The default configuration defined in the channel parameters [1] is provided after controller start-up.

Example 1:

Configuration of a 1-channel system with 3 spindles. The spindle with axis number 6 is to be the main spindle. Gear change for this spindle is deactivated.

After start-up, the spindle with the logical axis number 11 can be addressed as the main spindle by spindle name "S” for both channels. It can be programmed in conventional DIN syntax or in spindle-specific syntax. Spindle “S1” can also be programmed from both channels in spindle-specific syntax. Spindle “S3” is only available in channel 1. This spindle is not known in channel 2.
