The LEND is used to return the operation to the top of the repeat (LOOP to LEND) loop.
When the repeat cycle designated by the LOOP becomes 0, the loop is terminated, and the next positioning data No.
processing is started. (The operation pattern, if set to "Positioning complete", will be ignored.)
When the operation is stopped after the repeat operation is executed by designated cycles, the dummy positioning data (for
example, incremental positioning without movement amount) is set next to LEND.
The following table shows the operation when the positioning complete (00) is set to LOOP and LEND.
Positioning data No.
Setting positioning data
When using the LEND, set the following positioning data.
: Always set, : Set as required, : Setting not required
Acceleration time No.
Deceleration time No.

• Ignore the "LEND" before the "LOOP" is executed.
• When the operation pattern "Positioning complete" has been set between LOOP and LEND, the positioning control is
completed after the positioning data is executed, and the LOOP control is not executed.
