745Lower Bending Beam if Clamp Above Safety Stop Height
746Only Raise Clamp on E-Stop if MovingWhen set to Yes, the clamp will only raise on e-stop if it was already moving when the e-stop was triggered. When set to No, the clamp will always raise on e-stop as long as there is not a conflict with a bending beam.Yes
No
747Maintain Pedal for ShearTells the motion controller how to behave when operating the shear. If set to No, a momentary pedal press will initiate a shear move, which will continue until completion without the need for holding the pedal down. If set to Yes, the operator must hold down the pedal continuously in order to keep the shear moving - if the pedal is lifted before the shear move is complete, the shear will halt.No
Yes
748Hydraulic Pump Auto-Shutoff in RunControls the amount of time that the hydraulic pump will run while the machine is idle but in Run mode.
749Require Pedal Press to Return Shear HomeControls whether a pedal press is required to send the shear to its home position after the shear has finished a move to its target. When this parameter is set to disabled, the shear will return home after a move automatically. When the parameter is set to enabled, the shear will remain halted at its target until the operator presses the pedal again, at which time the shear will return home.

756Pause on Hem Closes (Default)Determines whether the Pause on Step function will be enabled by default on all hem close operations.
757Pause After Loading Step (Default)Determines whether the Pause on Step function will be enabled by default on the step following a loading step.
758Pause After Manipulation Steps (Default)Determines whether the Pause on Step function will be enabled by default following each manipulation step (turn, flip, rotate).
