CNC/PMC Data Window Library is used for exchanging data and information between a personal computer and the CNC/PMC through the HSSB or the Ethernet (TCP/IP).
The CNC/PMC Data window library described in this manual can be executed under the following OS(Operation System).
FOCAS1 : Windows 95, 98, Windows NT4.0 (Service Pack 4 or later), Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional
FOCAS2 : Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional
It can be used together with FA Library for DNC1/Ethernet because FOCAS1/Ethernet uses the same protocol as DNC1/Ethernet. And the libraries for the HSSB version and the Ethernet version can be used at the same time, too.
The main features of the library are as follows.
CNC: Reading/writing data related to controlled axes/spindle
This data includes the absolute position, relative position, machine position, remaining distance to go, actual feedrate, etc.
CNC: Operations related to CNC program
Operations include upload/download, verification, search, and deletion of CNC programs, read CNC program directory, and DNC operation from the pesonal computer.
CNC: Reading/writing CNC file data
This data includes tool offset data, workpiece reference point offset data, parameters, settings, custom macro variables, P-code macro variables, and pitch error compensation data.
CNC: Reading/writing tool life management data
CNC: Reading history data
This data includes operation history data and alarm history data.
CNC: Reading servo/spindle data
CNC: Reading/writing data related to Data Server, DNC1, DNC2, OSI-Ethernet (HSSB version only)
CNC: Reading/writing waveform diagnosis data
CNC: Reading/writing data related to PUNCH PRESS CNC
CNC: Reading/writing data related to LASER CNC
CNC: Reading/writing data related to servo learning data (HSSB version only)
CNC: Reading/writing of other data
This data includes continuous-state data, diagnostic data, A/D conversion data, alarm information, and operator messages, etc.
PMC: Reading/writing data related to PMC
This data includes addresses G, F, Y, X, A, R, T, C, and D, extended backup memory.
PMC: Reading/writing data related to PROFIBUS-DP
