1) Please store the embedded macro programs in FROM by the embedded macro
program save operation after doing program registration, change and deletion. When
the programs store is not executed after changing embedded macro programs, the
blinking PROG-SAV is displayed on current time display and it informs to an operator
that program store has not been done yet in order not to turn off the CNC power
By editing the embedded macro program, the program administrative information
(SRAM) and the contents of the embedded macro program (DRAM) are updated.
Then if the CNC power supply is turned off/on, the program administrative information
(SRAM) is differed from the contents of the embedded macro program (DRAM)
because the contents of the embedded macro program is rewritten by that in FROM.
When the CNC power supply is turned on, CNC checks whether the macro program
administrative information of both SRAM and DRAM are matched. If these information
are difference, all embedded macro programs on DRAM are deleted. In this case, the
contents of the embedded macro programs can not be referred and be executed
though the programs in a usual tape storage memory area are referred and executed.
In order to inform this state, the reverse PROG-ERR is displayed on current time
display. If this message is displayed, please do reload operation by softkey
<RELOAD>. By this operation, the embedded macro programs in FROM are loaded
correctly and are used normally.
There is no problem even if a program in a usual tape storage memory area is edited
or the parameter for embedded macro is changed and the CNC power supply is
2) At the editable embedded macro program state, when program all clear operation
("O-9999"+[DELETE] or turning on the CNC power supply while pushing [DELETE]) is
done, the "PROG-SAV" message is display. In this case, if <SAVE> operation is
done, the embedded macro programs in FROM are deleted.
3) When one program is registered, the program number for embedded macro can not
be changed. In this case, please save all programs to an external device and delete
