The SpindleMonitoringTypeis a collection of information about the rotary process axis.

Depending on the actual context of the machine tool, this may for example be a tool-holding milling spindle or a workpiece-holding turning spindle.

The SpindleMonitoringTypeis formally defined in Table 21.

IsRotatingbeing True indicates if the spindle is rotating and has a valid commanded rotation speed.

Overrideis representing the current value of the spindle override.

IsUsedAsAxisbeing True indicates if the monitored element is used as an axis or, if False, as a spindle. If IsUsedAsAxisis True, the values of IsRotatingand Overrideshall not be used by a client.
