G102 Programmable Output to RS-232 (Group 00)

*X - X-axis command
*Z - Z-axis command

* indicates optional

Programmable output to the RS-232 port sends the current work coordinates of the axes to another computer. Use this G-code in a command block without any other G-codes. No axis motion occurs.

note: Optional spaces (Setting 41) and EOB control (Setting 25) are applied.

Digitizing a part is possible using this G code and a program that steps over a part in X-Z and probes across in Z with a G31. When the probe hits, the next block could be a G102 to send the X and Z position out to a computer which stores the coordinates as a digitized part. Additional software for the personal computer is required to complete this function.

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.
