A stupid question, how to use the GOTO button?
« on: May 10, 2015, 01:33:50 AM »
I have read the manual and can't fine how to use the GOTO button.

I have gotten to the point, hit the GOTO button, touch a axis, type in location, what is next?

No, there is a GOTO Home, and there is GOTO, you hit it it lights up, you touch a axis and add a location (say 1.5)

ToGo, as has been said above , displays the distance left to go on the commanded move.
For example if you are at x0 y0 and you have NOT pressed the ToGo button, if you command a move to X10 Y10 then you will see the X and Y DRO count up to 10 as they approach the target location.

If however you have the ToGo button pressed then the DROs will start at 10 and count down to 0 as they move towards the commanded position, in other words they are showing the distance left to go as they aproach the commanded position.
