Alternative Feedrate OEM codes - do they work?
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:39:53 PM »
I found these OEM Codes:

OEM LED 113           Alternative feedrate in use (see OEM DRO 122) LED
OEM Button 299       Toggle bypass feed (enables value in OEM DRO 122)
OEM DRO 122          Feed rate ignoring that set in F word DRO

I added a button to my screen but it doesn't seem to work. The OEM LED works, and seems to indicate the alternate feedrate is active, but it doesn't change the feedrate.

Is anybody familiar with this feature?

Yes They still work "Here"

It is a form of FRO  

The dro is a multiplier of the feedrate. If your FR is 10 and the DRO input is 10 then the new feedrate is 100. (10x10)

The toggle button turns it on and off.

Thanks for the explanation TP. ;)

I tried it on my machine and it has zero effect, even though the LED indicates it is active.

I don't get why you say:

with quotation marks around the word "Here".  ???

Am I missing something?

Over the years there have been a LOT of things that I can get to work HERE on my setup that does NOT always work elsewhere on THEIR Machines.

IF you setup a button an LED and a DRO to drive the function it SHOULD work for you.  Input the multiplier for the FRO then press the button and the LED should come ON and the current feedrate should be multiplied by the DRO value. AND you should see the increase on the main screen .

Aaahh.... now I understand. It seems this is another one of those times. :(

I have done just as you instruct. The LED comes on, but no change in feedrate....

Thanks TP!

I am new so may be way off the mark but using my pendant I could alter the FRO slider but no change in feed rate UNTIL I unchecked (No FRO on Queue ) in Config >General config  ;) wonder if this may help

Thanks Nick,
But "No FRO on Queue" is already unchecked. :(

TP,
Thanks for confirming it works for you.... ;)

I have Ver 3.043.022. I thought it was the lockdown version. I'll look into upgrading.
