Correcting setup and additive offset in workpiece measurement: _DLNUM
Setup and additive offsets are assigned to the tool and a D number. Each D number can be
assigned up to 6 setup and additive offsets using DL numbers in the program. If DL=0, no
setup or additive offset is activated.
The existence or number of setup or additive offset is set in the machine data.

When measuring workpieces, it is possible to correct a selected setup or additive offset in
the measuring cycles with automatic tool offset using parameters _TNUM and _TNAME,
_KNUM (D-number coded) and the additional parameter _DLNUM.
_DLNUM is an integer. The value range is 0 to 6. This variable need only be defined by the
user if the corresponding digit is also programmed in variable _KNUM.
Two channel-oriented bits are available for selecting additive and setup offsets (see Section
The measuring cycles for workpiece measurement with automatic tool offset use channel bit
_CHBIT for selecting length and radius offsets in wear or geometry.
_CHBIT is also used for correcting setup and additive offsets:
Programming Manual, 03/2009 Edition, 6FC5398-4BP10-2BA0
The offset value is added to the existing wear.
Geometry(new) = geometry (old) + wear (old) + offset value,
wear (new) = 0
The offset value is added to the existing additive offset.
Setup offset (new) = setup offset (old) + additive offset (old) offset value, additive
offset (new) = 0
Correct additive/setup offset according to _CHBIT.
The offset value is added to the existing setup offset, regardless of _CHBIT.
