Ok, I'll give it my best shot. All programs on fanuc begin with the letter O. So, first make sure you are in "edit" mode. That's usually done with a dial switch under the screen somewhere. Once you are in edit mode, Type the letter O, then a colon, then a program # of your choice. Then program # can only have 4 digits after the O. (example, O:3856). In my example, you would type, letter O, colon, then 3856. After typing the numbers 3856, you need to press an "end of block" key. This key may be abreviated as EOB. It should create a semi- colon after the program #. Once you have a program #, then you can just start typing your program. But remember, each line must end with an "end of block" code. A typical program would look something like this.
N1 G50 X12.6 Y9.;
N2 G96 S450 M3;
N3 G00 T0101;
N4 X6.25 Z.005;
N5 G01 X0 F.012:
and so forth.
When you type this information in, some controls would require you to type each code seperatly. For example, if I was typing line 1, I would have to type, N1 ENTER, G50 ENTER, X12.6 ENTER.
But I believe the 10T control will allow you to type at least one entire line of information before you need to hit ENTER. You will just have to experiment with that. Just remember to type the end of block key after each line, otherwise it will just keep typing one long line.
By the way, when you start a new program, and you type the letter O, the colon that needs to be after that letter O, may appear automatically. If it does, then just continue to type your 4 digit number. If it doesn't, then of course you need to type it in after the letter O.
I hope this helps. I'm very curious to hear back from you to see if you got it. Let me know OK?
