Working with Dwell Events siemens NX

A dwell event causes its channel to wait for a specified time span. You can define this time span in seconds or revolutions.

You can:

  • Create a dwell event by selecting the desired cell in the channel list and:

    • Selecting Insert Dwell Event from the right mouse button menu.

    • Choosing the Insert Dwell Event icon


Using the icon to insert a dwell event always adds the event to the first channel.

  • Double-click on a dwell event to edit it.

  • With the right mouse button, click on the dwell event and select Delete to delete the event.


When the system inserts a dwell event, the entire line appears in blue, even though you have only inserted the dwell event in one channel.
