Unless you hack into Axis itself, there is nothing to solve, Andy has given the answer.

axis-remote --reload

Send that by whatever method you like, the M code script is the easiest.

The best programmatic solution would be to add to axisui and create a bit pin which triggers a reload.

See www.mgware.co.uk/ > Axis Modifications > Disable Run
for an example of how to add to the axisui pins

I have tried to use "Axis-remote --reload &" in every-which-way I can think of. It always hangs for seconds and then throws an error after executing.

Here is the last method I tried.

M101

#!/bin/sh
halcmd setp halui.mode.mdi true
axis-remote -m "o100 call"
axis-remote —reload &
exit 0

Sure would like to see Linuxcnc create a method to deal with this problem in the next release.

Did you try your script from the command line to see what the errors were?

Works from the command line fine.
Only delays and error when evoked from M-code

what is the error?
(of course you cannot invoke this when running a program)

Running a z-probe routine evoked from a pendant.

Error is "can't do this in manual mode."

It does do it, just hangs for a long time then spits the error after reloading.

I see many other people having the same problem.

Same problem as this guy.

this post led me to believe he may have solved it, but not for me. I'm running latest release.

Wonder if there's is a race condition? (mode not changed before reload issued)

If you get a wrong mode error then your code needs to check the mode and place LinuxCNC into the correct mode (MDI).

Take a look at halui modes.

www.linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/man/man1/halui.1.html

You can also do this with the python interface.
