The increment system consists of the least input increment (for input) and
least command increment (for output). The least input increment is the
least increment for programming the travel distance. The least command
increment is the least increment for moving the tool on the machine. Both
increments are represented in mm, inches, or deg.

The least command increment is either metric or inch depending on the
machine tool. Set metric or inch to the parameter INM (No.100#0).
For selection between metric and inch for the least input increment, G
code (G20 or G21) or a setting parameter selects it.
Combined use of the inch system and the metric system is not allowed.
There are functions that cannot be used between axes with different unit
systems (circular interpolation, cutter compensation, etc.). For the
increment system, see the machine tool builders manual.
