  • Probe Calibration at begining of program

    How would I insert a Probe Calibration command at the begining of a program?

    I am working on writing a program to check the variation of my machine to some gages we have. I know the gages just came back from calibration so I thought why not see how acurate the machice is to the gage blocks.

    I want to have the probe go calibrate before it starts any of the measuring.

    Thanks ahead of time.


    P.S.== I think this is my 100th Post. I am now in the Senior Class. I knew I would make it some day.

    I think if you put your cursor in the load probe line and press F9 you can select the measure in the probe utilities box and proceed with the calibration per normal.

      I think you are looking for this:

      Insert > Calibrate > Autocalibrate Probe

      This puts a probe calibrate command into your program. It calibrates the active probe. Hit F9 in the command line to set up some defaults, like if the calibration sphere has moved, etc. You should also set up a parameter set in your probe utilities for the probe you want to calibrate. This sets up the parameters for the calibration in your program.

      Hope this helps.

        I think I would do what John had metioned. You may also want to just put a IF statement in to give yourself flexibilty that you would not want to run the calibration everytime. Just a thought.

          The way john said works for the current probe angle. Is there a way to calibratre more than one angle at the same time in the middle of the program say to limit operator intervention.

            If you f9 on the autocalibrate you can define a calibration (set) and save it. Also you could try all tips with defaults. I only have one program that uses autocalibrate and mine are done with a defined set. So I'm rusty on this feature. But I have 3 autocalibrate commands in the beginning of the program for 3 different probes. If you want to calibrate more than 1 probe file you will need to have move points away from the sphere. If you have a probe changer you will not need them.
            Time for the Trolls to leave.

              Auto Calibration

              Hey Guys I'm also trying to do auto calibration and use If/Statement,I'm still
              working on it.Please see below and advice me.


              LOADPROBE/TIP2Y20MM-CY
              C1 =COMMENT/YESNO,NO,Do you want to calibrate the probe!
              IF/C1.INPUT/YES
              END_IF/
              GOTO/L1
              IF/C1.INPUT/NO
              END_IF/
              GOTO/L2
              L1 =LABEL/
              AUTOCALIBRATE/PROBE, PARAMETER_SET=ALL-TIPS-WITH-DEFAULTS, QUALTOOL_MOVED=NO,
              SHOW_SUMMARY=NO, OVERWRITE_RESULTSFILE=NO
              L2 =LABEL/
              STATS/ON,DATAPAGE,$
              DIRECTORY=C:\DATAPAGE,$
              DIRECTORY=,$
              READ=0,WRITE=0,MEMPAGES=0,DIMENSION NAME,CONTROLCALC OFF,$
              STATS/END

                Give this a try, it shouuld be what you are looking for

                Code:
                LOADPROBE/TIP2Y20MM-CY
                C1         =COMMENT/INPUT,NO,"DO YOU WANT TO CALIBRATE THE PROBE?"
                            IF/C1.INPUT=="YES"
                            AUTOCALIBRATE/PROBE, PARAMETER_SET=ALL-TIPS-WITH-DEFAULTS, QUALTOOL_MOVED=NO, 
                                          SHOW_SUMMARY=NO, OVERWRITE_RESULTSFILE=NO
                            END_IF/
                STATS/ON,DATAPAGE,$
                DIRECTORY=C:\DATAPAGE,$
                DIRECTORY=,$
                READ=0,WRITE=0,MEMPAGES=0,DIMENSION NAME,CONTROLCALC OFF,$
                STATS/END

                  Mr. Craiger has it correct for what I do. If the operator says yes, it calibrates. If no, it skips the calibration and moves on.


                  Also the paramater set in the calibration utilities will let you set up what tips to calibrate. You can set one up to them all, or just the ones for that program. Whatever you want.
