Near-point dog method
The following shows an operation outline of the home position return method "near-point dog method".
After the home position return
has been started, the zero point
of the encoder must be passed at
least once before point A is reached.

The machine home position return is started.
(The machine begins the acceleration designated in "[Pr.51] Home position return acceleration time selection", in the direction
designated in "[Pr.44] Home position return direction". It then moves at the "[Pr.46] Home position return speed" when the
acceleration is completed.)
The machine begins decelerating when the near-point dog ON is detected.
The machine decelerates to the "[Pr.47] Creep speed", and subsequently moves at that speed.
(At this time, the near-point dog must be ON. The workpiece will continue decelerating and stop if the near-point dog is OFF.)
After the near-point dog turns OFF, the machine stops. It then restarts and stops at the first zero point.
The home position return complete flag ([Md.31] Status: b4) turns from OFF to ON and the home position return request
flag ([Md.31] Status: b3) turns from ON to OFF.

Adjust so the near-point dog OFF
position is as close as possible to the
center of the zero signal HIGH level.
If the near-point dog OFF position
overlaps with the zero signal,
the machine home position return stop
position may deviate by one servomotor
