It's on the machine near the breaker. It starts the machine and will run a warm-up program of your choice

 

Also it will shut the matsuura off after an m30. Kind of weird how matsuura handles that. Even the cheap machines have auto power off.

So if you start work at 6, you can set the machine to automatically power on at, say, 5am and start warming up the spindle?

Yes.

1 program for daily

1 for 2days off

One for more than two weeks off

Our compressor also starts itself.

Exactly. Tho it won't work if you don't have your compressor running....or the operator left the E-Stop pressed when he powered down.

Leon Beat me to it....

That would be nice.  I have a routine that works for me.  Hit the compressor on the way in the door, then power on the machine.  Wake the computer and log in.  Go back to machine and it's ready for homing, then run spindle warmup while checking emails.  4 year old Haas 15K spindle, no problems so far (knock on wood).

The important thing to remember with the Auto Power-On feature, you MUST leave the machine in a condition that allows for a cycle to run in MEM mode. i.e. all doors closed, e-stop(s) released, main power on, tool magazine door(s) closed, etc...

 

Anything that will prevent normal operation of the machine will also prevent Auto Power-On from functioning completely. If any of those things are out of place, the machine will power-up, it just will not warm-up.

Also if you forget to reset the m30 key it will shut down after the first part. I did that today and mon to sat the machine is always on lol

Done that once or 5 times. 

I'll usually add an M98P9901  (or M98P1) before the M30, that way it will wait (if running a multi-pallet system) if there is no work ready.

That's hour ours is setup.

Pallet 4 runs a secondary so I run them in the morning then the other 3  run at night
