All of the Calculator sub-tabs perform simple add, subtract, multiply, and divide operations. When one of the sub-tabs is selected, a calculator window appears with the possible operations (LOAD, +, -, *, and /). Numbers are entered for calculation from the input bar after pressing ENTER.

  1. LOAD and the calculator window are initially highlighted. The other options can be selected with LEFT/RIGHT cursors. Numbers are entered by typing them and pressing ENTER. When a number is entered and LOAD and the calculator window are highlighted, that number is entered into the calculator window.
  2. When a number is entered after one of the other functions (+, -, *, /) is selected, the calculation is performed with the number just entered and any number that was already in the calculator window.
  3. The calculator also accepts a mathematical expression in the input bar. For example, type 23*4- 5.2+6/2 and press ENTER. The control evaluates this expression by doing multiplication and division first and then subtraction and addition. The result, 89.8, displays in the window. No exponents are allowed.
  4. note: Data cannot be entered in any field where the label is highlighted. Clear data in other fields (by pressing F1 or ENTER) until the label is no longer highlighted in order to change the field directly.
    Function Keys: The function keys can be used to copy and paste the calculated results into a section of a program or into another area of the Calculator feature.
  5. F3: In EDIT and MDI modes, F3 copies the highlighted triangle/circular milling/ tapping value into the data entry line at the bottom of the screen. This is useful when the calculated solution is used in a program.
  6. In the Calculator function, pressing F3 copies the value in the calculator window to the highlighted data entry for Trig, Circular or Milling/Tapping calculations.
  7. F4: In the Calculator function, this button uses the highlighted Trig, Circular or Milling/Tapping data value to load, add, subtract, multiply, or divide with the calculator.
