21. TWO–PATH CONTROL
A machine with two tool posts has different custom macro common
variables and tool compensation memory areas for tool posts 1 and 2.
Tool posts 1 and 2 can share the custom macro common variables and tool
compensation memory areas provided certain parameters are specified
Tool posts 1 and 2 can share all or part of custom macro common variables
#100 to #149 and #500 to #531, provided parameters 6036 and 6037 are
specified accordingly. (The data for the shared variables can be written
or read from either tool post.) See Section 16.1 of Part II.
Tool post 2 can reference or specify the data in the tool compensation
memory area of tool post 1, provided the CMF bit (bit 5 of parameter
8100) is specified accordingly. This can be executed only when tool posts
1 and 2 have identical data for tool compensation (number of groups,
number of columns, unit system, etc.).
