Axis %1 measuring systems differ considerably



%1 = Axis name, spindle number

The two measuring systems differ considerably, i.e. the cyclically monitored actual value difference between the two measuring systems is greater than the associated tolerance value set in the machine data $MA_ENC_DIFF_TOL. This can only occur when both measuring systems are active ($MA_NUM_ENCS = 2) and referenced. The alarm can be reprogrammed in the MD ALARM_REACTION_CHAN_NOREADY (channel not ready).


-    Mode group not ready.

-    The NC switches to follow-up mode.

-    Channel not ready.

-    NC Start disable in this channel.


-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

-    NC Stop on alarm.

-    Channel not ready.

Please inform the authorized personnel/service department. Check machine data for the active, selected encoders. Check the machine data relating to encoder ($MA_ENC_DIFF_TOL) tolerance.

Program Continuation:

Clear alarm with the RESET key in all channels of this mode group. Restart part program.
