View Full Version : program running time

03-12-2012, 08:22 AM
Hello everyone

I have the following task: to detect the running time of the machine in automatic mode.
The machine is a Chiron FZ15 with a Siemens 840D controller.
It has 2 tool spaces. Table 1 and Table 2
I want to count the running time in the automatic mode (processing of the program) not the stand still time.
Can anybody help me out??? I tried it with the cycle as explained in the manual but without success.

Kind regards

Have you tried it with the timer function?

Program start
$AC_TIMER[1]=0 ;Timer1 start
Program end
$AC_TIMER[1]=-1 ;Timer 1 stop
R10=$AC_TIMER[1]/60 ;running time minutes inR10
