M79 is used with a probe. An M79 generates an alarm if a programmed skip function (G31, G36, or G37) did not receive a signal from the probe. This is used when the lack of the skip signal means a probe positioning error. This code can be placed on the same line as the skip G-code or in any block after.

Probe Positioning Error: [1] Signal Found. [2] Signal not Found.
