Function
Using the "Handwheel" function, you can assign an axis to the
handwheels and activate them.
Operating sequence
"Jog" mode is selected in the "Machine" operating area.
The "Handwheel" window appears on the screen.
Position the cursor on the handwheel of your choice (1–3).
An axis identifier is suggested in the "Axis" field. All other existing
axes can be selected via the "Select" key. The settings are accepted
immediately and an axis is assigned to each handwheel (1–3).
Every time you press the "Select" key in the "Active" field you activate
or deactivate enabling of the relevant handwheel. The settings
become active immediately.
When you turn the handwheel, the assigned axis traverses by the
number of increments set for it ("Inc" keys).
The machine-tool manufacturer is responsible for the design of
handwheels. Operation may therefore differ from the explanation
above.
Please refer to the information and specifications provided by the
machine manufacturer.
Function
The "Preset" function can be used to redefine the control zero in the
machine coordinate system.
The preset values act on machine axes.
Axes do not move when "Preset" is active.
