SPINDLE SPEED (S)
To set the speed in revolutions per minute (rpm) of the spindle, program: S~
The spindle turns at the commanded speed when it has been programmed to start turning. It’s okay to program an S word whether the spindle is turning or not. If the speed override switch is enabled and not set at 100 percent, the speed is different from what is programmed. It’s okay to program S0, but the spindle does turn if that is done.
It’s an error if:
- The S number is negative
