Amada Laser edge detection

Amada Laser edge detection

Amada Laser edge detection

Hello all, I'm trying to get our Amada FO 3015NT to sense the edge of the material and make adjustments accordingly. The goal here is to use factory edges on flat bar and sheet metal while still having accurate hole spacing. I have copied some code from the user manual that I thought should work, but no luck. The code is
M121 L2 A1 X0 Y0 I10 J30 Q5 and is alone on the line just above M100.
I believe what the code above should do is go to the origin then sense material at 10 and 30 inches on the x axis, then 5 inches on the y axis. The laser will go to the origin but will not take any measurements or sense anything. It will then start cutting as the rest of the program. What am I missing? Any help is appreciated

Figured it out! There was a typo in the manual, "M121" should have been "G121". Changed that and it worked just fine.
