OVERVIEW | HEIDENHAIN

For machines with Heidenhain TNC/iTNC controllers CNCnetPDM enables you to acquire and monitor machine-, process-, part-counter and quality-data and integrate it seamlessly with your business information systems. It also allows to write and change PLC Data and machine parameters on these devices.

In general data acquisition from a remote PC is possible from Heidenhain TNC 426, 430, 320, 620, 640 and iTNC 530 controllers that have an Ethernet network connection. A list of all controllers supported by CNCnetPDM can be found here.

  • Note: Our device driver and all diagnostic programs can be used without Heidenhain Option 18 (DNC).

Heidenhain IoT Interfaces

Data that can be read from Heidenhain controllers

  • Controller information (TNC type, NC and PLC version)
  • Program information (program path and name)
  • Actual NC Program block number
  • Execution mode
  • Program running state
  • Override information
  • Axis data (number of axes, axis name and current position)
  • Cutter data (number of cutters, cutter name and current position)
  • Tool information (number, index, axis, length, radius)
  • PLC data (le.g. programmed & actual speed, programmed & actual feed rate, voltage and temperature information...)
  • Machine parameters TOP

Please start by using our tool Heidenhein TNC Machine Data to test data collection from your machines with Heidenhain TNC and iTNC controllers. Instructions on controller setup are also included.

Monitoring of machine data with sampling rates down to 1 second and writing of PLC data and machine parameters is provided by our Heidenhain TNC Device Driver.

For data acquisition from controllers that do NOT have DNC Option 18 activated see these how-to instructions.

For automatic acquisition of Heidenhain part counter data see our article on reading of Heidenhain workpiece counters. TOP

All acquired data can easily be accessed and used by your applications. Device data can directly be modified from your program. For bidirectional communication between machines with Heidenhain controllers connected to CNCnetPDM and your applications you can use our free Open Source Client (C-Sharp)

With HeidenhainPLC you can read PLC data from different areas, scan ranges of PLC addresses and search for target values.

The tool HeidenhainPLCRW enables you to write and read PLC data as well as machine parameters. TOP
