PROGRAMMING18. SPECIFYING THE LASER FUNCTION
The laser power can be controlled in a block containing machining
commands (linear interpolation G01 and circular interpolation G02 and
S_: Peak power (W)
P_: Pulse frequency (Hz)
Q_: Pulse duty (%)
When a machining command is specified with S, P, and Q, the values
specified for S, P, and Q are set for the corresponding parameters, so that
the laser beam is controlled according to these parameters.Thus, S, P, and
Q, described in Format, need not necessarily be specified each time a
command is specified.
If any of the items is not specified, the value set previously for the
corresponding parameter is assumed.
Specifies the peak power of the laser.
Specifies the pulse frequency at which laser beam pulses are to be output.
Specifies the pulse duty (ratio of the pulse ON time to the pulse period)
at which laser beam pulses are to be output.
