Reserved needle bar and sewing speed settings

Normally, the machine automatically assigns thread colors to the needle bars; however, a specific thread color can be manually assigned to a certain needle bar. If a needle bar is specified, that needle bar is removed from the machine’s automatic assignments and the specified color remains assigned to it.
By specifically assigning often used thread colors to certain needle bars, the trouble of changing the thread spools can be reduced.
Also, the maximum sewing speed can be specified to the assigned needle bar. It is useful when you specially set a weak thread such as a metallic thread to the assigned needle bar.

  • This feature is not accessible through the embroidering screen.
  • You can assign thread colors up to 9 needle bars in normal mode. When you set "Manual Color Sequence" to "ON" in settings screen, it is available to assign up to 10 needle bars. If you assign all the 10 needle bars in the "Manual Color Sequence" mode, and then you set the machine to the normal mode, the setting of needle bar 10 is canceled automatically.
    For details, refer to "How do I manually specify or manage the thread colors assigned to each needle bar? ".

 

Once a manual needle bar setting is specified, it remains applied until the setting is cancelled.
The manual needle bar settings can be specified in page 3 of the settings screen.
