The Wizard 411 has two operating modes: Distance-To-Go
(INCREMENTAL) and Actual Value (ABSOLUTE). The Distance-To-Go
feature enables you to approach nominal positions simply by
traversing to display value zero. When working within the incremental
mode you can enter nominal coordinates as either incremental or
absolute dimensions. The Actual Value feature always displays the
current actual position of the tool, relative to the active datum. In this
mode, all moves are made by traveling until the display matches the
nominal position that is required.
Fig. I.1
Distance-To-Go (INCREMENTAL) / Actual Value
(ABSOLUTE) Hard key
Fig. I.2
Screen for establishing Ref Marks
While in the ABSOLUTE (Actual Value) mode, if the Wizard 411 is
configured for Milling applications, only the tool length offsets are
active. Both the diameter and length offsets are used in the
INCREMENTAL (Distance-To-Go) mode to calculate the amount of
“distance-to-go” required to get to the desired nominal position
relative to the edge of the tool that will be doing the cutting.
If the Wizard 411 is configured for turning, all tool offsets are used in
both the ABSOLUTE and INCREMENTAL modes.
Press the ABS/INC hard key (see Fig. I.1) to toggle between these two
modes. To view other soft key functions in either ABSOLUTE or
INCREMENTAL mode, use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys.
The turning application provides a quick method for coupling the Z
axes position on a 3 axis system. For more information, see "Coupling"
on page 26.
Reference Mark Evaluation
The Wizard 411 reference mark evaluation feature automatically reestablishes the relationship between axis slide positions and display
values that you last defined by setting the datum.
For each axis with an encoder that has reference marks the REF
indicator will flash for that axis (see Fig. I.2). After crossing over the
reference marks, the indicator will stop flashing and change to a nonflashing “REF”.
Working without reference mark evaluation
You can also use the Wizard 411 without crossing over the reference
marks. Press the NO REF soft key to exit the reference mark evaluation
routine and continue.
You can still cross over reference marks at a later time if it becomes
necessary to define a datum that can be re-established after a power
interruption. Press the ENABLE REF soft key to activate the position
recovery routine.
If an encoder is setup without reference marks, then the
REF indicator will not be displayed, and a datum set from
any axis will be lost once power is turned off.

Operating Modes
I – 1 Introduction to Wizard 411
ENABLE/DISABLE REF function
The ENABLE/DISABLE soft key, that is present during the position
recovery routine, allows the operator to select a specific reference
mark on an encoder. This is important when using encoders with Fixed
Reference Marks (instead of ones with Position-Trac™ feature). When
the DISABLE REF soft key is pressed, the recovery routine is paused
and any reference marks that are crossed during encoder movement
are ignored. When the ENABLE REF soft key is then pressed, the
recovery routine once again becomes active and the next crossed
reference mark will be selected.
You do not have to cross over the reference marks of all the encoders,
only those that you need. Once reference marks for all desired axes
are established, press NO REF soft key to cancel out of routine. If all
reference marks have been found, the Wizard 411 will return to the
DRO display screen automatically.
Job Setup Parameters
To view and change Job Setup parameters, first press the SETUP soft
key, then use the Up/Down arrow keys to highlight the parameters of
interest and press the ENTER key. See Fig Fig. I.3.
Units
The Units form is used to specify the preferred display units and
format. You can also select the unit of measure by pressing the
INCH/MM soft key in either Actual Value or Distance-To-Go mode.
Scale Factor
The scale factor may be used to scale the part up or down. A scale
factor of 1.0 creates a part with the exact size as dimensioned on the
print. A scale factor >1 “grows” the part, and <1 “shrinks” the part.

The numeric keys are used to enter a number greater than zero. The
number range is 0.1000 to 10.000. A negative value may also be
entered.
The scale factor settings will be retained on a power cycle.
When the scale factor is a value other than 1, the scaling symbol
is shown on the axis display.
The ON/OFF soft key is used to disable the current scale factors.

also stop and start the clock. Pressing the Zero key will
reset the clock.
Console Adjustment
The LCD’s contrast can be adjusted either by using the soft keys in
this form or by using the Up/Down arrow keys on the keypad in either
operating mode. The contrast may need to be adjusted due to
variations in ambient lighting and operator preference. This form is
also used to set the display saver’s idle time-out. The display saver
setting is the amount of time the system is idle before the LCD
switches to screen saver mode. The idle time may be set from 30 to
120 minutes. The display saver can be disabled during the current
power cycle.

Set/Zero Soft Key Details
The SET/ZERO soft key is a key that determines the effect of pressing
an Axis key. This key is a toggle key, switching the functionality
between Set and Zero. The current state is indicated in the Status Bar.
When the state is Set, see Fig. I.5, and the Wizard 411 is in Actual
Value mode, selecting an Axis key opens the Datum form for the
selected axis. If the Wizard 411 is in Distance-To-Go mode, a Preset
form opens.
When the state is Zero, and the Wizard 411 is in Actual Value mode,
selecting an Axis key sets the current datum for that axis to zero at the
current position. If it is in Distance-To-Go mode, the current DistanceTo-Go value is set to zero.
If the Wizard 411 is in Actual Value mode and the state of
Set/Zero is zero, pressing any Axis key resets the current
datum to zero at the current location for that axis.

Key Functions Detailed
Tool Hard Key
This Hard key opens the tool table and provides access to the Tool
form for entering a tool’s parameters (a soft key is used on a one axis
readout). The Wizard 411 can store up to 16 tools within the tool table.
Tool Table
The Wizard 411 tool table provides a convenient way to store diameter
and length offset information for each of the tools you commonly use.
You can enter up to 16 tools. (See Fig. I.6 Tool Table in Milling).
The following soft keys are also available while in the Tool Table form
or in the individual tool data form:
Function
Soft key
This key allows the operator to select which
axis all the tool length offsets will affect. The
tool’s diameter values will subsequently be
used to offset the remaining two axes.
Press to automatically enter the tool offset
length. Only available in TOOL LENGTH field.
This will open the TOOL TYPES form for
selection. Only available in TYPE field.

Tool Table in Milling
Fig. I.7
Tool compensation
Tool Compensation
Wizard 411 has tool compensation. This allows you to enter workpiece
dimensions directly from the drawing. The displayed distance to go is
then automatically lengthened (R+) or shortened (R–) by the value of
the tool radius. See Fig. I.7. For more information see "Presets" on
page 10.
The length offset may be entered as a known value or the Wizard 411
may determine the offset automatically. The tool length is the
difference in length ∆L between the tool and the reference tool. The
length difference is indicated with the “∆“ symbol. The reference tool
is indicated by T1, see Fig. I.8.
Wizard 411
7
I – 2 Milling Specific Operations
Sign for the length difference ∆L
If the tool is longer than the reference tool: ∆L > 0 (+)
If the tool is shorter than the reference tool: ∆L < 0 (–)
As indicated above it is also possible to have the Wizard 411
determine a tool’s length offset. This method involves touching the tip
of each tool to a common reference surface. This allows the Wizard
411 to determine the difference between the length of each tool.
Move the tool until its tip is touching the reference surface. Press the
TEACH LENGTH soft key. The Wizard 411 will calculate an offset relative
to this surface. Repeat the procedure for each additional tool using the
same reference surface.
Only the tools set using the same reference surface may
be changed without having to reset the datum.
Calling the Tool from the Tool Table
To call a tool, press the TOOL hard key. Use the Up/Down arrow keys
to cursor through the selection of tools (1-16). Highlight the tool you
want. Verify the proper tool has been called, and press the TOOL or C
key to exit.

Touching the edges
Datum Setting
Datum settings define the relationships between the axis positions
and the display values.
Setting datum points is done best by using the Wizard 411 probing
functions with a tool.
Datum points are set in the conventional manner by touching the
edges of the workpiece, one after the other with a tool and manually
entering the tool positions as datum points. See Fig. I.9 & Fig. I.10.

I – 2 Milling Specific Operations
Datum Setting with a Tool
Using a tool to set datum points, you can still use Wizard 411 probing
functions. See Fig. I.11 & Fig. I.12.
The following probing soft key functions are available:
„ Workpiece edge as datum: EDGE soft key
„ Centerline between two workpiece edges: CENTER LINE soft key
„ Center of a hole or cylinder: CIRCLE CENTER soft key
In all probing functions, Wizard 411 takes into account the current
tool’s entered tip diameter.
To abort the probing function while it is active, press the C key.

I – 2 Milling Specific Operations
Presets
The Preset function allows the operator to indicate the nominal (target)
position for the next move. Once the new nominal position
information is entered the display will switch to Distance-To-Go mode
and show the distance between the current position and the nominal
position. The operator now only needs to move the table until the
display is zero and he will be at the required nominal position. The
information for the location of the nominal position can be entered as
an absolute move from the current datum zero or as an incremental
move from the current nominal position.
Presetting also allows the operator to indicate which side of the tool
will be doing the machining at the nominal position. The R+/- soft key
in the Preset form defines the offset that will be in effect during the
move. R+ indicates that the center line of the current tool is in a more
positive direction than the edge of the tool. R- indicates that the center
line is in a more negative direction than the edge of the current tool.
Using R+/- offsets automatically adjusts the distance-to-go value to
account for the diameter of the tool. See Fig. I.13.

This section discusses operations specific to turning applications only.
Tool Table
The Wizard 411 can store the dimensional offsets for up to 16 tools.
When you change a workpiece and establish a new datum, all tools are
automatically referenced from the new datum.
Before you can use a tool, you must enter its offset (the cutting edge
position). Tool offsets can be set using the TOOL/SET or LOCK AXIS
features. See the following examples for instructions on Tool
Offsetting (See Fig. I.26).
Tool Display Icon
The Ø icon is used to indicate that the displayed value is a diameter
value. No icon visible indicates that the display is a radius value.
Setting Tool Offsets Example 1: Using TOOL/SET
The TOOL/SET operation can be used to set a tool’s offset using a tool
when the diameter of the workpiece is known. Touch the known
diameter in the X axis (1). Press the TOOL hard key. Scroll to the desired
tool. Press the ENTER key. Select the axis (X) key.
Fig. I.26 Tool table in turning

Datum Setting
See "Datum Setting" on page 8 for basic information. Datum settings
define the relationships between the axis positions and the display
values. For most lathe operations there is only one X-axis datum, the
center of the chuck, but it may be helpful to define additional datums
for the Z-axis. The table can hold up to 10 datum points. The easiest
way to set datum points is to touch a workpiece at a known diameter
or location, then enter that dimension as the value that the display
should be showing
Example: Setting a workpiece datum. See Fig. I.30.
.
Preparation:
Call the tool data by selecting the tool which you are using to touch the
workpiece. Press the DATUM hard key. The cursor will be in the DATUM
NUMBER field. Enter the datum number and press the DOWN ARROW key
to go to the X-axis field. Touch the workpiece at point 1. Enter the
radius or diameter of the workpiece at that point.

Remember to ensure the Wizard 411 is in diameter display mode (Ø)
if you input a diameter value. Press the DOWN ARROW key to advance to
the Z axis.
Touch the workpiece surface at point 2. Enter the position of the tool
tip (Z= 0) for the Z coordinate of the datum. Press ENTER.
Setting Datums using LOCK AXIS Function
The LOCK AXIS function is useful for setting a datum when a tool is
under load and the diameter of the workpiece is not known. See Fig
Fig. I.31.
To use the LOCK AXIS function:
Press the DATUM hard key. The cursor will be in the DATUM NUMBER
field. Enter the datum number and press the DOWN ARROW key to go to
the X axis field. Turn a diameter in the X axis. Press the LOCK AXIS soft
key while the tool is still cutting. Retract from the current position.
Turn the spindle off and measure the workpiece diameter. Enter the

Taper Calculator Hard Key
You can calculate tapers either by entering dimensions from a print, or
by touching a tapered workpiece with a tool or indicator.
Use the taper calculator to caculate taper angle. See Fig. I.33 and
Fig. I.34.
Entry values:
For the taper ratio, calculation requires:
„ Change in the radius of the taper.
Ø
„ Length of the taper
For taper calculation using both diameters (D1, D2) and length
requires:
„ Starting diameter
„ End diameter

Presets
The functionality has been explained previously in this manual (See
"Presets" on page 10). The explanation and examples on those pages
are based on a mill application. The basics of those explanations are
the same for turning applications with two exceptions; Tool Diameter
Offsets (R+/-), and Radius vs. Diameter inputs.
Tool diameter offsets have no applications with turning tools, so this
functionality is not available while doing turning presets.
Input values can be either radius or diameter values. It is important to
be sure the units you are entering for the preset agree with the state
that the display is currently using. A diameter value is shown with a Ø
symbol. The state of the display can be changed using the RAD/DIA
soft key (available in both operating modes).
Radius/Diameter Soft Key
Drawings for lathe parts usually give diameter values. Wizard 411 can
display either the radius or the diameter for you. When the diameter is
being displayed, the diameter symbol (Ø) is shown next to the position
value. See Fig. I.35.
Example: Radius display, position 1, X = .50
Diameter display, position 1, X = Ø 1.0
Press the RAD/DIA soft key to switch between radius display and
diameter display.
Fig. I.35 Workpiece for radius/diameter display
Vectoring
Vectoring breaks down the movement of the compound axis into the
crossfeed or longitudinal axes See Fig. I.36. If you are turning threads,
for example, vectoring lets you see the diameter of the thread in the
X-axis display, even though you are moving the cutting tool with the
compound axis handwheel. With vectoring enabled, you can preset
the desired radius or diameter in the X-axis, so that you can “machine
to zero”.
When vectoring is used, the top slide (compound) axis
encoder must be assigned to the bottom display axis. The
crossfeed component of movement of the axis will then
be shown in the top display axis. The longitudinal
component of movement of the axis will be shown in the
middle display axis.
Press the VECTORING hard key.
Press the ON soft key to enable the vectoring feature.
Arrow down to the Angle field to enter the angle between the
longitudinal slide and top slide with 0° indicating the top slide is
moving parallel to the longitudinal slide. Press ENTER.

II – 1 Installation Setup
Enabling Z Coupling
To couple the Z0 and Z axis and have the result displayed on the Z0
display, press and hold the Z0 key approximately 2 seconds. The sum
of the Z positions will be displayed on the Z0 display and the Z display
will be blanked. See Fig. II.4.
To couple the Z0 and Z axis and have the result displayed on the Z
display, press and hold the Z key for approximately 2 seconds. The
sum of the Z positions will be displayed on the Z display and the Z0
display will be blanked. The coupling is preserved in between power
cycles.
Moving either Z0 or Z inputs will update the coupled Z position.
When a position is coupled, the reference mark for both encoders
must be found in order to recall the previous datum.
Disabling Z Coupling
To disable Z Coupling, press the axis key of the display that is blank.
The individual Z0 and Z display positions will be restored.
Fig. II.4 Enabling Z Coupling
Error Compensation
The distance a cutting tool travels, measured by an encoder, can in
certain cases, differ from the actual tool travel. This error can occur
due to ball screw pitch error or deflection and tilting of axes. This error
can either be linear or non-linear. You can determine these errors with
a reference measurement system, ex. gauge blocks, laser, etc. From
an analysis of the error it can be determined which form of
compensation is required, linear or non-linear error.
The Wizard 411 provides the opportunity to compensate for these
errors and each axis can be programmed separately with the
appropriate compensation.
Error compensation is only available when using linear
encoders.
Wizard 411
27
II – 1 Installation Setup
Linear Error Compensation
Linear error compensation can be applied, if the results of the
comparison with a reference standard show a linear deviation over the
whole measuring length. In this case the error can be compensated by
the calculation of a single correction factor. See Fig. II.5 & Fig. II.6.
8
8
Once determined, the encoder’s error information is entered
directly. Press the TYPE soft key to select LINEAR compensation.
Enter the compensation factor in parts per million (ppm) and press
the ENTER key.
To calculate the linear error compensation use this
formula:
Correction factor LEC =
with
( S M– M ) x 10
6
ppm
S = measured length with reference
standard
M =measured length with device at axis
Example
If the length of the standard you used is 500 mm
and the measured length along the X-axis is
499.95, then the LEC for the X-axis is 100 parts
per million (ppm).
6
LEC = 500 – 499.95 x 10 ppm
499.95
(
)
LEC = 100 ppm
(rounded to the nearest whole
number)
Fig. II.5 Linear error comp., calculation formula
Non-Linear Error Compensation
Non-linear error compensation should be applied, if the results of the
comparison with a reference standard show an alternating or
oscillating deviation. The required correction values are calculated and
entered in a table. Wizard 411 supports up to 200 points per axis. The
error value between two entered adjacent correction points is
calculated with linear interpolation.
Non-linear error compensation is only available on scales
with reference marks. If non-linear error compensation
has been defined, no error compensation will be applied
until the reference marks have been crossed.

Backlash Compensation
When using a rotary encoder with a lead screw, a change in direction
of the table might cause an error in the displayed position due to
clearances within the lead screw assembly. This clearance is referred
to as backlash. This error can be compensated for by inputting the
amount of backlash within the lead screw into the Backlash
Compensation feature. See Fig. II.7.
If the rotary encoder is ahead of the table (displayed value is greater
than the table’s true position), this is called positive backlash and the
value entered should be the positive value of the amount of error.
No Backlash Compensation is 0.000.
