M6 Macro Help

Hi Everyone,

Need some help with an M6 macro.

I rewrote a macro, but I had a few problems with ATC monitoring.

ATC Spindle has 2 PNP sensors. Which are connected to X310 & X311 on the UC300ETH & UB1. (Say port 3 / pin 10 & 11).

LED 95 (LED_DRAWBAR) = Drawbar State
LED 96 (LED_TOOL_INSERT) = Tool Insert State

ATC Spindle Initial state empty = LEDs (Both) -> ON
Drawbar Open = LED 95 (LED_DRAWBAR) -> Off
Drawbar Closed = LED 95 (LED_DRAWBAR) -> ON
and
Tool Insert = LED 96 (LED_TOOL_INSERT) -> Off

Code: Select all
     // Opens power drawbar to ensure that the new tool can be accepted
         if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: Open Drawbar ...(Unclamp)"); }
             exec.Setoutpin(Chuckopenport, Chuckopenpin);          // Opens power drawbar to ensure that the new tool can be accepted
             while(exec.IsMoving()){}
             exec.Wait(UnclampTimer);

             // check Collet has opened
             while(!AS3.GetLED(LED_DRAWBAR))     
             {
                if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: ATC Drawbar Open!"); }
                Thread.Sleep(1);
                if(exec.Ismacrostopped())
                ErrorCheck = true;
                 {
                  exec.Clroutpin(Chuckopenport, Chuckopenpin);
                  exec.Wait(10);
                  exec.StopWithDeccel();
                  exec.Setvar(0, 100);            //stops manual change macroloop blocking the output for eject
                  MessageBox.Show("Tool change was interrupted at collet open!");
                  return;
                 }
             }


            // Pick new tool
            if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: Pick New Tool"); }
            exec.Code("G00 G53 Z"+ Ztoolpickup); // Move Z axis down to tool holder position
            while(exec.IsMoving()){}


            // Clamp power drawbar to retrieve tool
            if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: Close Drawbar...(Clamp)"); }
            exec.Clroutpin(Chuckopenport, Chuckopenpin); // Close the chuck with pneumatic valve
            exec.Wait(ClampTimer); // Wait

            // Check Drawbar is Closed
            while(AS3.GetLED(LED_DRAWBAR))      // check tool has locked
            {
             if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: Drawbar Close / Clamp"); }
             exec.Wait(100);
             //Thread.Sleep(1);
               if(exec.Ismacrostopped())
              {
               exec.Setvar(0, 100);        //stops manual change macroloop blocking the output for eject
               MessageBox.Show("Tool not locked or no tool!");
               exec.StopWithDeccel();
               return;
              }
            }

            // Move to Pre Position
            if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: Z UP to Pre-Position!"); }
            exec.Code("G1 F5000 G53 Z"+ (Ztoolrelease + Zprepos));          // Move Z axis down to tool holder position
            while(exec.IsMoving()){}


            // Check Tool Insert
            while(!AS3.GetLED(LED_TOOL_INSERT))      // check tool has locked
            {
             if (Debug) { MessageBox.Show("Debug: Tool Locked / Insert!"); }
             Thread.Sleep(1);
               if(exec.Ismacrostopped())
              {
               exec.Setvar(0, 100);        //stops manual change macroloop blocking the output for eject
               MessageBox.Show("Tool not locked or no tool!");
               exec.StopWithDeccel();
               return;
              }
            }           

            // Move back to Pre Release Y
            if (Debug) MessageBox.Show("Debug: Move Out of Pocket to PreRelease Y...!");
            exec.Code("G00 G53 Y" +  ypre);
            while(exec.IsMoving()){}



Everything works fine until "Check Tool Insert". This keeps running in the loop.

Does anyone know where my mistake is?


Thank you in advance.
