    Default Smart key levels

    Smart keys with access level 1 and 2 came with the machine. What more can you do with level 3 and 4 keys ? DMG doesn't seem to want to give/sell the 3/4 keys, any other way to get them ?

    After a little more reading it is a little clearer.
    Still would like to get my hands on a number 4 key at least.

    If yours is anything like mine you need 3 to be able to jog or do anything with the doors open.

    If I remember right 4 has something to do with maintenance

    Never used 2 personally just 1 and 3

    With mine I have the 3 key and maintenance password and I donít think I am restricted by anything.

    We will see if I get what I want.
    Still nothing new from DMG: More than 3 months from the machine was delivered and ready for install a lot of things are still missing.

    So- based on that chart you own a machine that you can’t program or set tools? How have you used the machine so far?

    Ya Iíve never used anything but level 4 key but my understanding is mode one is strictly push go, unload and reload part.

    I've only got level 2 at work, which allows access to damned near everything.


    We have a level 3 key, which had to be ordered from DMG in Europe I believe. Never needed to use it.

    So itís not actually restrictive like the manuals say?

    Nope, I can do anything I want as far as setup and tooling.



    This is on modern Celos/MappsV controllers.

    What about programming? Are you able to do that? Edit programs? Change rpm or feed?

    Itís been a few months since Iíve read up on this in the operators manual, but I thought with key #1 you could hand the machine over to an unskilled operator or new guy and he would not be able to alter the program, tool data, offsets, or parameters. Maybe even not be able to use mdi or jog mode.

    And then with key #2 being a step up you can load a different program and perhaps touch off tools.

    I might find our keys and try out the different ones next week.

    So far there has not been anyone running the machine that cannot be trusted with full access. But I can imagine a few scenarios where it would be a useful option. For training, or if an operator seems to consistently make unsafe edits.

    It could be handy someday to show a new guy the cycle start button and how to load the part then let him get familiar with how the machine works before introducing him to a million different ways he can scrap a part or wreck an expensive new machine.
