Channel %1 axis %2 already active


%1 = Channel number


%2 = Axis name, spindle number

The displayed axis is already traversing as a machine axis. Therefore, it cannot be operated as a geometry axis.

Traversing of an axis can take place in JOG mode through 2 different interfaces.

1. as a geometry axis: via the channel-specific interface DB 21 - DB 28, DBX12.6 or DBX12.7



2. as a machine axis: via the axis-specific interface DB 31 - DB 48 DBX8.6 or DBX8.7 With the standard machine control panel, it is not possible to operate an axis as machine axis and geometry axis at the same time.

- Alarm display.

Do not start the geometry axis until the traversing motion as machine axis has been concluded.

Program Continuation:

Clear alarm with the Delete key or NC START.
