Modal effect of changes in the cycle (P-CHAN-00210)

P-CHAN-00210

Modal effect of changes in the cycle

Description

The modal G functions, circle geometry data and the current feed rate active before a cycle call are restored when the cycle ends, i.e. changes in the cycle with respect to this data are not retained.

If the parameter 'cycle_changes_modal’ is assigned the value 1, changes in the cycle with regard to this data are retained after the cycle ends (modal). The cycle then behaves like a normal subroutine with regard to effectiveness.

Parameter
