*3 When a millimeter machine is used with inch input, the
maximum specifiable range of a dimension word is as
Increment system The maximum specifiable range
*4 With address M, S, T, or B, an unsigned integer of no more
than 32 bits can be specified. However, the value specifiable
in a parameter-set M, S, T, or B code ranges from 0 to
However, the number of digits greater than the value of
parameters (Nos. 2030 to 2033) that specify an allowable
number of digits cannot be specified. Parameter No. 2003
can be used to enter a negative value.
Numbers to be set and usage purposes are restricted on some
codes, such as M codes that are not buffered, depending on
parameter settings. For details, see the parameter manual.
- Optional block skip
When a slash followed by a number (/n (n=1 to 9)) is specified at the
head of a block, and optional block skip switch n on the machine
operator panel is set to on, the information contained in the block for
which /n corresponding to switch number n is specified is ignored in
DNC operation or memory operation.
When optional block skip switch n is set to off, the information
contained in the block for which /n is specified is valid. This means that
the operator can determine whether to skip the block containing /n.
Number 1 for /1 can be omitted. However, when two or more optional
block skip switches are used for one block, number 1 for /1 cannot be
//3 G00X10.0; /1 /3 G00X10.0;
This function is ignored when programs are loaded into memory.
Blocks containing /n are also stored in memory, regardless of how the
optional block skip switch is set. Programs held in memory can be
output, regardless of how the optional block skip switches are set.
Optional block skip is effective even during sequence number search
Depending on the machine tool, all optional block skip switches (1 to
9) may not be usable. Refer to manuals of the machine tool builder to
find which switches are usable.
