I use a marco statment in my programs to count how many parts each tool has ran. Then using #3006 I send a massage to the screen to tell the operator what tool needs changed. The problem is that the operator is running other machines and some times will not notice that the machine has stoped at the #3006 massage is there a way to make the control beep in the program just before the #3006 sends the massage other than M30 M00 M02
after looking at the pallet suttle marco program I found that #1139=1 will make the buzzer for pallet change come on and #1139=0 will turn it off this will work just sa good as the control buzzer.
