T FUNCTION STROBE 1
This signal informs that the tool function (T code) is specified in automatic operation (memory or
MDI), machining program or by manual numerical command input.
The tool function is also called the T function, and is used to command the tool No. in the lathe
specification controller, the tool compensation (tool length offset, tool nose wear compensation)
Nos. are also indicated.
The user PLC receives the T code data 1 with this signal.
The signal turns ON when:
(1) The T function (T code) is specified in automatic operation (memory or MDI).
(2) T function (T) is specified by manual numerical command input.
The signal turns OFF when:
(1) "M function finish 1" signal (FIN1) or "M function finish 2" signal (FIN2) turns ON.
(2) Reset condition occurs.
(Refer to the "In auto operation" signal (OP) section for details on the reset conditions.)
(Note 1) The T function strobe (TF) is not output during operation with the M function lock (AFL
An example of the timing chart for the "T function strobe" signal (TF1) is shown below.
