- Rotation angle ˘
In exponential interpolation, the X coordinate and angular
displacement θ of the A axis to X are expressed by equation (1).

where, I is the gradient.
In equation (1), the portion of the natural logarithm l n in parentheses
must satisfy equation (2). Because it is impossible to find the logarithm
of a negative number, which means that the value in the parentheses
must be positive.

As illustrated below, if the value of xtan(I)/R becomes smaller than -1,
the position moves beyond point (A), which is not realistic. In this case,
alarm PS897 occurs.

The values of X, Y, Z, and U in the equations for exponential
interpolation (refer to the operator’s manual) are treated using
coordinates in the workpiece coordinate system. Therefore, even when
a positive value is specified in an incremental command, it is regarded
as negative in the equations if it is positioned at a negative coordinate in
the workpiece coordinate system.
