Allows the user to change the axis name for a motor axis. The current_axis_letter must be one of the motor axes names listed with the BU X command. The new_axis_letter_ascii_code must be the decimal ASCII code for the desired axis name for letters between upper case A(65) and Z(90). For the change to take effect, the new setting must be saved to flash memory using SS Z, followed by a hardware reset. The new axis name will remain in effect unless default settings are restored to the controller.

If the Z2B value of an axis is queried (e.g. Z2B Y?), the axis’ index on the card is returned (e.g. :A Y=1 for the 2nd axis on the card).

Reply

If there are no errors, a positive response of :A will be returned from the controller.

Required to save new name setting to flash. 2 because Z is on card#2
