Status Size:

User can change size of LED indicators at the status bar.

Status LEDs:

To create and add a desired LED indicator to status bar, user writes dedicated short code into LED input bar.

ES: Creates Estop LED indicator.

SL: Creates Soft Limit LED indicator.

LM: Creates Hard Limits LED indicator.

MT: Creates Motor Enable LED indicator.

AL: Creates Axis Lock LED indicator.

ER: Creates Error pin LED indicator.

On: Creates Output header pin LED indicator. O3 would create indicator for output pin 3.

In: Creates Input header pin LED indicator. I3 would create indicator for input pin 3.

Ln: Creates Limit header pin LED indicator. L3 would create indicator for limit input pin 3.

Jn: Creates Jog header pin LED indicator. J3 would create indicator for jogging input pin 3.

Cn: Creates CTRL header pin LED indicator. C3 would create indicator for CTRL pin 3.


Example: We would like to create LED indicator for Input pin 1 and Output pin 3.

In such case we write O3 and I1 into input bar. For the sake of better representation, size of indicators is set to 49 pts:

Indicators are created in the bottom left corner:
