Extended Bracket to Guide Rails End Dimensions ( in this example RBL_MODE =0 )

3. Extended Bracket to Floor Level Dimensions

To switch from “bracket to guide rail end” to “Bracket to floor level”, you need to change the relevant new mode flag, the value is 8. The mode variable is below the rail brackets list in the data tree; BracketList.RBL_MODE

 

*Mode flags have to be added. Here is RBL_MODE 0, so we have to set it to 8:

If the value < 7    add 8

If the value >= 8   subtract 8
