For each axis minimum and maximum travel are required as part of the axis calibration process. These values are used by the system to check if the requested motion command is within the travel limits of the axis. If the requested motion is outside the travel limits then the motion is not executed and a soft limit alarm is flashed on the screen.
All homing inputs on MASSO are automatically used as hard limit input. During the homing of the machine these inputs are used to home each axis and once homing is complete, these inputs are used to trigger a hard limit alarm that stops all motion and spindle. A hard limit alarm is flashed on the screen.
