if the Safety Integrated option is selected):
The display shows the machine axes in the MCS, the current position
and a check box for "Activate/deactivate approval".
• Position the cursor on the desired machine axis.
• Use the Select button to activate/deactivate approval for the
selected machine axis.
Check whether a reference point approach has been performed on
the relevant axis. If not, the error message "Perform reference point
approach first" is displayed. Approval cannot be granted for the axis
until the reference point approach has been performed on the axis.
The User Approval function is only offered if user approval is required
on at least one axis of the channel.
