Eidt 9000 on 18-M


Jan 21, 2016
I have a machine with a 18-M control and I want to edit the 9000 programs. On the setting page in parameters it doesn't have 3202 or 3210/3211. How do you enable edits for the 8000/9000 programs?
I think the issue is you're looking at parameters under the "settings page", same place you changed the parameter write enable from 0 to 1.

After you change parameter enable (PWE), hit the system hard key (under the hard POS [POSITION] key), and page down / search for 3202
In case anyone comes Searching for a quick answer.
