15. LASER FUNCTION
An override can be applied to the cutting condition data listed below by
using an external signal.
For details of override, refer to “FS16i Connection Manual (Function)”
(B–63523EN–1) and “FS16i–LB Connection Manual” (B–63663EN).
– Peak power
– Pulse frequency
– Pulse duty cycle
– Assist gas pressure
The data area of the cutting condition setting function allows high–speed
access but has a small capacity.
To use many types of workpiece materials, it is necessary to prepare a
separate cutting condition data file and transfer necessary data from the
file to the cutting condition data area. With the expansion nonvolatile
memory controllable by the PMC and the enhanced CNC–PMC window
function, application software that uses the expansion nonvolatile
memory as a cutting condition data file can be developed by using C of
1) Data transfer between the cutting condition data area and expansion
The PMC–CNC window function allows data transmission and
reception between the CNC data area and the expansion nonvolatile
This can be used for functions that use an M code for comment reading
mentioned above to specify necessary data for cutting, transfer the data
from the expansion nonvolatile memory, in which all cutting condition
data has been registered in advance, to the data area, and perform
operation while making high–speed access to the transferred data.
2) Data transfer between the cutting condition data area and macro
System variables are assigned to data items so that data can be read
from and written in the cutting condition data area by using
conversational macros and execution macros.
This function cannot be used when the option for additional cutting
condition registration is specified.
