11. SETTING AND DISPLAYING DATA
The reading on the load meter depends on servo parameter 2086 and
spindle parameter 4127.
Although the speedometer normally indicates the speed of the spindle
motor, it can also be used to indicate the speed of the spindle by setting
bit 6 (OPS) of parameter 3111 to 1.
The spindle speed to be displayed during operation monitoring is
calculated from the speed of the spindle motor (see the formula below).
The spindle speed can therefore be displayed, during operation
monitoring, even when no position coder is used. To display the correct
spindle speed, however, the maximum spindle speed for each gear
(spindle speed at each gear ratio when the spindle motor rotates at the
maximum speed) must be set in parameters No. 3741 to 3744.
The input of the clutch and gear signals for the first serial spindle is used
to determine the gear which is currently selected. Control the input of the
CTH1A and CTH2A signals according to the gear selection, by referring
to the table below.

The following table lists the correspondence between clutch and gear
selection signals CTH1A and CTH2A <G070#3, #2>, used to determine
the gear being used, and parameters:
CTH1A CTH2A Parameter
0 0 =No.3741 (Maximum spindle speed with gear 1)
0 1 =No.3742 (Maximum spindle speed with gear 2)
1 0 =No.3743 (Maximum spindle speed with gear 3)
1 1 =No.3744 (Maximum spindle speed with gear 4)
The speed of the spindle motor and spindle can be displayed, during
operation monitoring, only for the first serial spindle and the spindle
switching axis for the first serial spindle. It cannot be displayed for the
