The Position display shows the current axis position relative to four reference points (Work, Distance-to-go, Machine, and Operator). In any mode, press POSITION and use cursor keys to access the different reference points displayed in tabs.The last tab display shows all the reference points on the same screen.
|WORK (G54)||This tab displays the axis positions relative to part zero. On power-up, this position uses work offset G54 automatically. It displays the axis positions relative to the most recently-used work offset.|
|DIST TO GO||This tab 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.|
|MACHINE||This tab displays the axis positions relative to machine zero.|
|OPERATOR||This tab 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.|
|ALL||This tab displays all reference points on the same screen.|
