Channel %1 block %2 illegal tool adapter operation


%1 = Channel number

%2 = Block number, label


If an attempt is made to define or cancel a tool adapter assignment with reference to a magazine location and this magazine location already has another tool adapter and/or a tool is located in the adapter or - when canceling an assignment - a tool is still at the location, this alarm will appear. If machine data $MC_MM_NUM_SUMCORR has the value -1, adapters cannot be generated by a write operation to an adapter which is not already defined. While the machine data has this value, you can only write adapter data to adapters which have already been (automatically) assigned to magazine locations.


-    Correction block is reorganized.

-    Interface signals are set.

-    Alarm display.


Assign max. one adapter to a magazine location.

The magazine location must not contain a tool.

Machine data $MC_MM_NUM_SUMCORR has value -1: If an alarm occurs when writing one of the system variables $TC_ADPTx (x=1,2,3,T), the write operation must be modified such that only adapter data which are already associated with the magazine locations are written.

Program Continuation:

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