The Position display usually appears near the lower center of the screen. It shows the current axis position relative to four reference points (Operator, Work, Machine and Distance-to-go). In SETUP:JOG mode, this display shows all of the relative positions at the same time. In other modes, press POSITION to cycle through the different reference points.

Axis Position Reference Points

Coordinate Display Function
OPERATOR This position shows the distance you have jogged the axes. This does not necessarily represent the actual distance the axis is from machine zero, except when the machine is first powered on.
WORK (G54) This displays the axis positions relative to part zero. On power-up, this position uses work offset G54 automatically. It will then display the axis positions relative to the most recently-used work offset.
MACHINE This displays the axis positions relative to machine zero.
DIST TO GO This displays the distance remaining before the axes reach their commanded position. When in SETUP:JOG mode, you can use this position display to show a distance moved. Change modes (MEM, MDI) and then switch back to SETUP:JOG mode to zero this value.
