NC Configuration

If TwinCAT is installed with NC function capability (minimum: TwinCAT Level NC PTP) you will see "NC Configuration" in the tree view of the System Manager. Here you can create the required axes and set their parameters. When TwinCAT is started, it's also possible to drive axes via corresponding online dialogues (NC Manual Menu, Online Display of Axis Channel) and carry out other NC axis functions like manual coupling etc..).

Besides that, the following dialog "Version [Target]" is equivalent.
