The first line of a punched tape in ISO format must have the following
format: %<Title>LF or %<Title>CRLF.
The title can be omitted and blanks can be skipped. The title may not
start with one of the following characters: 0...9, a...z, A...Z
No title is generated when a punched tape is generated in ISO format.
Siemens program headers are introduced by %<Name> and pathname
;PATH=<Path> in the next block.
ISO program headers are characterized by O<xxxx (Title)> O or :
:<xxxx (Title)> without pathname in the next block.
x stands for a number between 0 and 9. Between one and four digits
can be specified, leading zeros can be omitted.
During export, ISO program headers are only tagged with O<...>
and not with :<...>.
The procedure for importing a punched tape in ISO format is the same
as the procedure used to import a regular punched tape archive in the
"Services" operating area with "Data in". During the import, the system
detects automatically whether the archive to be imported is stored in
binary/PC, punched tape or ISO punched tape format.
Imported ISO programs are stored as main programs on the NC. You
must set the read-in directory every time you import programs to the
"Services" area by selecting → "Data In" → "Start". If "Path from
workpiece/archive" is selected, ISO programs are stored in the
selected directory (e.g. workpiece xxx) or in the default NC directory
(MPF.DIR); DIN programs are stored in accordance with their
