    Post Probing Sequence Questions

    Hey guys, I've got a few questions about some code for a probing sequence that I've inherited. I'm trying to clean it up but there are a few commands that I'm unsure of. I'm using a Renishaw OMP40-2 in a DMG MORI NZX-2500 series horizontal lathe with a Fanuc controller.

    Questions:
    1) Since G53 is a one-shot command, is it even doing anything on a line by itself? Is there some reason the original programmer kept calling it?
    2) The only thing that the MORI manual states about M2200 is "when stopping pre-read by NC intentionally, specify M2200 where pre-read needs to be stopped." I'm not sure what that implies...why is it called here?
    3) I know from watching the program that the G10L52 command is writing to the N4077 parameter to rotate the spindle into a specific orientation, but how does this work? I was expecting to see a G420 C_ after the M19 call.
    4) The interesting choice was made to use the MOD command to swap between M19 and M20. I don't understand why M20 is being used. Can I specify a reference position with M19 then use the G420 call as mentioned in question 3 instead?

    Thanks for any input. I realize the code below is difficult to follow in its present state.

    Not a lathe guy, sorry, but I guess G53 is doing the same as your M2200 and inhibiting look-ahead to capture position values at correct time.

    Can't help with the spindle orient question, maybe program was originally written with clever workaround for machine with no spindle orient option?
