Tool life management data consists of tool group numbers, tool numbers,
codes specifying tool compensation values, and tool life value.
The Max. number of groups and the number of tools per group that can
be registered are set by parameter (GS1,GS2 No. 6800#0, #1) (Table
11.2.1 (a)).

WARNING
When bits 0 or 1 of parameter GS1,GS2 No.6800 is
changed, re–register tool life management data with the
G10L3 command (for registering and deleting data for all
groups). Otherwise, new data pairs cannot be set.
Specify a four–digit number after T.
Codes specifying tool offset values are classified into H codes (for tool
length offset) and D codes (cutter compensation). The maximum number
of the tool compensation value specification code which can be registered
is 255 when there are 400 tool compensation values (even if the option
for 512 tool life management sets is supported). The maximum number
is 32, 64, 99, 200, 499, or 999 when there are 32, 64, 99, 200, 499, or 999
tool compensation values.
NOTE
When codes specifying tool offset values are not used,
registration can be omitted.
Refer to II– 11. 2. 2 and II–11. 2. 4.
