RELEASE NOTES | FANUC

(3/20/2018)

Updated tools for machine data acquisition and the CNCnetPDM Fanuc device driver are available. In addition the programs now support the ‘free license’ model beginning with CNCnetPDM 5.0.0.0 with no limitations on time and number of connected devices. The most recent version of CNCnetPDM is required for the device driver and the driver development kit. The legacy tool FanucStateGui.exe was replaced by FanucDataGui.exe.

FANUCCONF.DLL 2.0.0.0 (3/20/2018)

The universal device driver for Fanuc controllers now supports the ‘free license’ model without limitation on runtime or number of devices. The most recent version of CNCnetPDM is required. Download

FANUCDEVELOPER 2.0.0.0 (3/20/2018)

The device driver development kit now also supports the new licensing model with no limitations on runtime and number of devices. Also requires the most recent version of CNCnetPDM. Download

FANUCDATAGUI 2.0.0.0 (3/20/2018)

This tool now supports the new licensing model of CNCnetPDM. Items are now output depending on the CNCnetPDM license installed a PC to enable setup of production solutions with a ‘free license’. Download

(1/8/2018)

An enhanced version of our universal device driver for Fanuc controllers is now available. This driver provides improved functions to cleanup handles and free memory if CNCnetPDM re-establishes connection to the controller. The device driver now also supports sampling rates down to 1 second. Due to compatibility issues with the most recent Fanuc controllers we removed support of the legacy fanuc.dll and fanucext.dll drivers.

FANUCCONF.DLL 1.8.0.4 (1/8/2018)

Universal device driver for Fanuc controllers. Download

(10/12/2017)

We released an universal device driver for Fanuc controllers that enables usage of functions from the Fanuc FOCAS library without the need for programming. Functions, input and output parameters can be defined in an INI file that is automatically created on a per-device basis. Functions and parameters can be changed dynamically without the need to restart CNCnetPDM. Drivers can also be tested with our new ‘Device Driver Tester’ tool.

FANUCCONF.DLL 1.8.0.3 (10/12/2017)

(10/9/2017)

An updated version of our popular extended device driver for Fanuc controllers was released. This version includes the following changes: Simplified detection of controller type for alarm output. Correct output of macro values. Output of Fanuc FOCAS errors as text to device log file. Enhanced performance by reduction of function calls per read cycle.

FANUCEXT.DLL 1.8.0.4 (10/9/2017)

Download

TOP

(10/1/2017)

We released an updated version of the extended device driver for Fanuc controllers. This driver fixes an issue where output sections for specific items defined by the user in the INI file were ignored or taken from incorrect INI file sections.

FANUCEXT.DLL 1.8.0.3 (10/1/2017)

This driver allows you to output acquired items to sections (1,2 or 3) via entry ‘Output section’ in the device driver INI file. This enables to build and output groups of items on a per machine basis. Download

TOP

(9/27/2017)

We released an updated version of our popular driver development kit for Fanuc controllers. Creation of customized device drivers is far more simple in this version. By changing a few lines in a single file you can now add any function from the Fanuc Focas Library. An additional helper DLL file (customfanuc.dll) takes care of getting handles, formatting output and reporting errors. This version now can also be used for commercial projects without the need for an additional license.

Fanucdeveloper 1.8.0.2 (9/27/2017)

Visual Studio (2017) project including templates, headers and libraries to develop customized device drivers. Download

(8/23/2017)

We released an updated version of our popular simple device driver for Fanuc controllers.

FANUC.DLL 1.8.0.0 (8/23/2017)

This driver that outputs machine states and part counter values now also supports error reporting from the underlying Fanuc FOCAS components. Fanuc specific error codes are translated into understandable form and output to the devices log file. Download

(8/20/2017)

In addition to CNCnetPDM 4.9.0.0 an improved version of the extended device driver for Fanuc controllers was released:

FANUCEXT.DLL 1.8.0.0 (8/20/2017)

This driver now allows you to output acquired items to specific sections (1,2 or 3) via entry ‘Output section’ in the device driver INI file. This enables to build groups of items and place long values (e.g. axis positions) into an own section.

Error reporting from the underlying Fanuc FOCAS components is now fully supported. For example, if your function call returns a FOCAS specific error like EW_PROTOCOL it is translated into ‘Protocol error’ and written to the log file of the device. This allows you to quickly find out errors or switch off unsupported functions via the device driver INI file. Download

TOP

(6/30/2017)

Fanuc driver development kit released. The kit enables creation of user specific device drivers within minutes with minimal effort. It contains all functions used by the extended device driver for Fanuc controllers. Any function from the Fanuc Focas Library can be quickly implemented.
