Speed keys are numeric shortcuts that jump straight to a menu item without having to navigate through the menus. To execute a speed key, first press the FUNC key and then press a number key 0 through 9. The FUNC menu is displayed until the speed key is pressed. The speed keys are shown in the table below with mill and lathe differences noted.
Fast Mode Toggle
This function will program the fast mode sequence on any 24BIT or BCD7 protocol scales connected to the DRO that are not already in fast mode. This function can be used to put a newly connected scale into fast mode without powering the DRO off and back on.
This function is used to toggle between displaying the axis reading, the raw scale counts, and the scale jitter. This function is mainly used for troubleshooting and helping to determine how much a scale reading is jittering. Each activation of this function will toggle between the three possible displays.
This function is used to run a user-defined, Lua automation script. After entering this speed key, you are prompted to enter a number from 0 to 9 representing one of the 10 user functions named user0 through user9, respectively. See the automation section for more information on the automation interface.
