Feedrate override
« on: July 04, 2007, 04:09:27 PM »
Hi All:
Is there a DRO that  shows true feedrate?
The one I'm using in my screen shows what the feedrate is that has been called for in the Gcode. But, it does not update if I use the feedrate override.
I have another DRO that shows the percent override and that changes with the "plus" and "minus" keys. But, the feedrate DRO does not update.
Or, perhaps there's VB script that would read the override percent and then multiply it by the programmed feedrate and then display that number?
Thanks for the help in advance.
LEW

Hey Lew, the one in the default screen works. Could look at it in screen 4 and see what it is.

Well, Mr. Brett, you have been a big help once again.
Actually, I did look at the default screen but only looked at the "feedrate" DRO. I read it and it showed OEM Code 818. So, instead of using the screen code for feedrate I placed OEM Code 818 onto that button. When that didn't work I decided to post here to see what I missed. After reading your reply I went back to the default screen and saw that the correct DRO was called "FRO" or feed rate override. Once I looked at that OEM Code I saw that it was Code 55. After trying that, the cure was found. So, thanks again for your helpful insight.
