Aliased codes are user defined G and M-codes that reference a macro program. There are 10 G alias codes and 10 M alias codes available to users.

Aliasing is a means of assigning a G-code or M-code to a G65 P##### sequence. For instance, in the previous Example 2, it would be easier to write:

G06 X.5 Y.25 Z.05 F10. T10 ;

When aliasing, variables can be passed with a G-code; variables cannot be passed with an M-code.

Here, an unused G code has been substituted, G06 for G65 P9010. In order for the previous block to work, the parameter associated with subroutine 9010 must be set to 06 (Parameter 91).

note: G00, G65, G66, and G67 cannot be aliased. All other codes between 1 and 255 can be used for aliasing.

Program numbers 9010 through 9019 are reserved for G code aliasing. This table lists which Haas parameters are reserved for macro subroutine aliasing.

G- and M-code Aliasing

Setting an aliasing parameter to 0 disables aliasing for the associated subroutine. If an aliasing parameter is set to a G-code and the associated subroutine is not in memory, then an alarm will be given When a G65 macro, Aliased-M or Aliased-G code is called, the control first looks for the sub-program in MEM. If it is not found in MEM, the control then looks for the sub-program on the active drive (USB, HDD). An alarm occurs if the sub-program is not found.

When a G65 macro, Aliased-M or Aliased-G code is called, the control looks for the sub-program in memory and then in any other active drive if the sub-program cannot be located. The active drive may be memory, USB drive or hard drive. An alarm occurs if the control does not find the sub-program in either memory or an active drive.

Be aware: Many service and repair procedures should be done only by authorized personnel. The service technicians at your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) have the training, experience, and are certified to do these tasks safely and correctly. You should not do machine repair or service procedures unless you are qualified and knowledgeable about the processes.

Danger: Some service procedures can be dangerous or life-threatening. DO NOT attempt a procedure that you do not completely understand. Contact your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) and schedule a service technician visit if you have any doubts about doing a procedure.
