    Fanuc 21i-t function key programming

    Anyone know how to program function keys on a 21i-t?

    I would like to run some M codes with them.

    Im not sure which keys you are referring to but;

    M-codes are functions of the PMC. Therefor it would be a fairly easy task to either use spare buttons from the Machine Operators panel (Not MDI /QWERTY key pad), or even to add buttons. Then modify the PMC to activate the functions currently controlled by the M-codes. Using the PMC would also allow any interlocking deemed necessary to prevent accidental activation.

    There is also a function called "Software Operators Panel" which could eliminate the need to add buttons. But their operation is limited.
