5.5 Generic coupling
The current state of a coupling characteristic set with a keyword, can be read and written to
with the relevant system variable.
When writing in the part program, PREPROCESSING STOP is generated.
The names of system variables are normally derived from the relevant keywords and a
The first letter of the prefix defines the access location when reading:
System variable prefix
The preprocessing value of a $PA_CP.. CP system variable only differs from the values of
the corresponding $AA_CP.. CP system variable during active part program processing.
At the end of the program or with abort, there is an appropriate synchronization of the
preprocessing with the main run states.
System variable list
A list of all system variables which can be used in a generic coupling is contained in the data
lists (refer to " System variables [Page 358] ").
For a detailed description of system variables, refer to:

Creating/deleting coupling modules
Creating a coupling module (CPDEF)
An axial coupling module is created through the definition of the following axis.
Access location during read
Reading of channel referenced axis
specific coupling characteristics in
block preparation (Preparation)
Reading of the current state of the
coupling module (across channels).
