    Did you get the machine books? For probing in Mazatrol, the Mazatrol programming book goes over it fairly well.

    Probe cycles running in Mazatrol read from L1-L4 and so on. If you're probing in EIA, calibrate the probe using EIA cycles and this gets written to common variable sets.

    Actual part inspection? Yes but it's a bit trickier. Do you have a programming book handy? You just need to write in code to capture the outputs and do your own comparisons and/or reporting. ...
