Program Continuation:

Channel %1 block %2 program %3 not existing or will be edited

%1 = Channel number %2 = Block number, label %3 = Program name

An unknown identifier (string) was found in the part program. It is therefore assumed that this is a program name. The part program indicated in a subprogram call or SETINT statement does not exist or is not released for machining.

As of SW 5, when a program is edited on the MMC, it can no longer be started with NC Start.

This alarm occurs if the PI FB-4 is being applied to a non-existent program.

-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.

The alarm may have different causes:

Typing error of the identifier stated in parameter 3

Check subprogram call/SETINT statement or PROC statement. Reload part program and release for machining or close MMC editor.

The PI "_N_ASUP_" FB-4, analog to the SETINT instruction, may want to select a non

existent program

Wrong path definition in subprogram call when subprogram is not callled up via a search path but via an absolute path definition. Examples of complete path definitions: / _N_directoryName_DIR/_N_programName_SPF or /_N_WKS_DIR/_N_wpdName_WPD/ _N_programName_SPF. directoryName: MPF, SPF, CUS, CMA, CST (defined directories). wpdName: user-specific identifier of workpiece directory (max. of 24 characters). programName: name of subprogram (max. of 24 characters)

Parameter 3 can be a macro name. The macro definition file has an inappropriate content or it is not stored in the directory DEF_DIR or it has not been set active (via POWERON or via MMC operating step or by PI service 'F_COPY').

Parameter 3 can be a GUD variable. There is no GUD definition file defining the variable or it is not stored in the directory DEF_DIR or it has not been set active (via the INITIAL_INI procedure or via MMC operating step or by PI service 'F_COPY').

The part program could also be started from the CPU (ASUP).

Note: It could also be a program started by PLC PROG_EVENT_DESK.

Clear alarm with NC START or RESET key and continue the program.
