We are using the "L_NULL" process call (subroutine, whatever) to update the values in our G527 offset.
L_NULL(27, R30, R31, -39.21541, 0, 0)
We are currently "hard coding" the Z Axis Offset value from our G505 Work Offset. The issue is that this number gets updated frequently, and we'd like to pull the System Variable value for this Z height value.
Does anyone know the name of the variable that holds this number? I'm guessing it will be something like:
$P_FRAME10 or maybe $E_MD9865
I'd like to use this variable name in place of "G505 Z Value" in the function call below:
L_NULL(27, R30, R31, "G505 Z Value", 0, 0)
So it would look something like this:
L_NULL(27, R30, R31, $E_MD9865, 0, 0)
If anyone knows the proper variable name, I'd sure appreciate it...
Solved! Go to Solution.
That makes sense. I've seen that variable in the documentation. So, sounds like $P_UIFR[27,Z] is what I'm after. I'll try it at the machine.
If you (or others) need to know more, this is covered in the "advanced" programming guide ("PGA" manual).
The one I have is v11.02, 6FC5298-6AB10-0BP2
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
Thanks Ken. I've got the same guide, just a slightly different version. 11.02, 6FC5298-6CA00-0BG2.
One of these days I'll get some more time to just browse through it and pick up some more info. Unfortunately I rarely get to program for our DMG's or our WFL these days. I have a bunch of ongoing parts that keep me busy on our older machines.
Thanks for taking the time to answer though, I do appreciate it.
