OPERATION11. SETTING AND DISPLAYING DATA
On the twelve–soft key type LCD, relative coordinates cannot be
displayed together with absolute coordinates whenever there are five or
more controlled axes. Pressing the
[ALL] soft key toggles the display
between absolute and relative coordinates.
The total position display screen also supports the resetting of the relative
coordintes to 0 or presetting of them to specified values. See the procedure
for resetting the relative coordintes described in Subsection III–11.1.2
A workpiece coordinate system shifted by an operation such as manual
intervention can be preset using MDI operations to a pre–shift workpiece
coordinate system. The latter coordinate system is displaced from the
machine zero point by a workpiece zero point offset value.
Procedure for Presetting the Workpiece Coordinate System
1 Press function key
2 Press soft key

4 Press soft key
5 Press soft key
[ALLAXS] to preset all axes.
6 To preset a particular axis in step 5, enter the axis name (
, then press soft key [AXS–CD].
This function can be executed when the reset state or automatic operation
stop state is entered, regardless of the operation mode.
As with absolute coordinates, bit 3 (PPD) of parameter No. 3104 is used
to specify whether to preset relative coordinates (RELATIVE).
