I recently got an old machine back up and running and lost some of the parameters in the process. Its a swiss machine with an auto bar loader. It alarms out with "bar feed cycle time over" at bar change every time. the loader is working properly. I assume the parameter that controls the maximum time was reset or mis-set. I have the parameter manual for it and noting comes up when I search bar feed or m62 ((bar on) probably a custom m code set by tsugami).
The machine uses m96 to leave the bar change program.
When I search m96 (custom macro interrupt) there are a few pages on that but I dont see "timer" option in the corresponding parameters.
So, does anyone know how to increase my allowed custom macro cycle time?
