Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block %2 transformation active: motion not possible

%1 = Channel number %2 = Block number, label

The machine kinematics does not allow the specified motion. Transformation-dependent error causes can be in:

TRANSMIT: A (circular) area exists around the pole, where positioning is not possible.

The area is caused by the fact that the tool reference point cannot be traversed as far as

into the pole. The area is defined by:

the machine data ($MC_TRANSMIT_BASE_TOOL..)

the active tool length compensation (see $TC_DP..).

Whether the tool length compensation is included in the calculation depends on the working plane selected (see G17,..). The machine stops at the edge of the area where positioning is not possible.

-    Local alarm reaction.

-    NC Start disable in this channel.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

-    NC Stop on alarm.

Modify part program. Change the incorrectly specified tool length compensation.

Note: RESET alone is not enough if transformation also remains active during RESET. Clear alarm with the RESET key. Restart part program
