Weighting factors for service life and service distance

In the case of every tool change announced with the T-command, the complete tool ID, the service life and the service distance are sent to the tool management. All parameters are then zeroed and tool life acquisition is enabled for the new tool substituted.

The following two decoder variables are used to program the weighting factors of service life and service distance (access is not synchronous with real time):

V.TLM.TIME_FACT                                                                            (Weighting of service life)

V.TLM.DIST_FACT                                                                            (Weighting of service distance)

The variables can be read and written. Both factors are 100% at program start. Both variables may be written in an NC block.
