(Common to Power Mate i–D and –H)
2. CONTROLLED AXES
The user can assign any one of the following nine characters as the axis
name: A, B, C, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z. Parameter No.1020 is used to
determine the name of each axis.
When this parameter is set to 0 or a character other than the valid
characters is specified, an axis name from 1 to 8 is assigned by default.
When a default axis name (1 to 8) is used, operation in the AUTO mode,
MDI mode and DNC mode is disabled.
If a duplicate axis name is specified in the parameter, operation is enabled
only for the axis specified first.
In Power Mate i–D2 axis information displayed on the CRT
screen, such as the current position, may contain an axis
name with a suffix indicating the related path (X1, X2, etc).
This is intended to provide a comprehensible indication of
the path to which the axis belongs. The suffix cannot be
used in a program ; the axis name should be specified as X,
Y, Z, U, V, W, A, B, or C.
