You can traverse the axes in the machine coordinate system (Machine) or in the workpiece
coordinate system (Work) via the handwheel.
All axes are provided in the following order for handwheel assignment:
● Geometry axes
● Channel machine axes
Operating Manual, 03/2010, 6FC5398-7CP20-1BA0
You require the "Extended operator functions" option for the handwheel
offset (only for 828D).
When traversing, the geometry axes taken into account the actual machine status (e.g.
rotations, transformations). All channel machine axes, which are currently assigned to the
geometry axis, are in this case simultaneously traversed.
Channel machine axes are assigned to the particular channel. They can only be
individually traversed, i.e. the actual machine state has no influence.
The also applies to channel machine axes, that are declared as geometry axes.
Please refer to the machine manufacturer's specifications.
Select the "Machine" operating area.
Press the <JOG>, <AUTO> or <MDA> key.
Press the menu forward key and the "Handwheel" softkey.
The "Handwheel" window appears.
A field for axis assignment will be offered for every connected
Position the cursor in the field next to the handwheel with which you
wish to assign the axis (e.g. No. 1).
Press the corresponding softkey to select the desired axis (e.g. "X").
