We released an updated version of our Heidenhain TNC device driver.
HEIDENHAIN.DLL 220.127.116.11 (7/31/2019)
The driver now also outputs data for Error class, group, number and text if there's no error (otherwise a previously detected error would still show up as active although it was cleared). Output value in this case is 0 for Error class, group and number and 'None' for error text.
This utility program enables to read and output PLC data from an external PC connected to the controller via Ethernet network.
It supports reading of PLC MARKER, BYTE, WORD and DWORD values. For all supported data types you can scan adjustable PLC address ranges and output their values. You can also search PLC address ranges for a target value. It also allows to convert PLC output data from older TNC 426 and 430 devices to match the values shown at the controller. Download
HEIDENHAINPLCRW.EXE 18.104.22.168 (10/22/2018)
This utility program for Heidenhain TNC and iTNC controllers allows writing and reading of PLC data and machine parameters from an external PC connected to the controller via Ethernet network.
It supports writing and reading of PLC MARKER, BYTE, WORD and DWORD values and machine parameters. It also allows to convert PLC BYTE, WORD and DWORD output data read from older TNC 426 and 430 devices to match the values shown at the controller. DownloadTOP
Updated tools for machine data acquisition and Heidenhain device drivers are available. In addition the programs now support the ‘free license’ model of CNCnetPDM 22.214.171.124 with no limitations on time and number of connected devices. CNCnetPDM 126.96.36.199 is required for the device driver.
HEIDENHAINDATA.EXE 188.8.131.52 (3/20/2018)
This program automatically detects older controller versions like TNC 426 and TNC 430 that do not provide access to specific areas. It silently uses alternative methods to detect execution mode and program status and outputs correct values. Download
HEIDENHAIN.DLL 184.108.40.206 (3/13/2018)
This driver version also automatically detects older controller versions like TNC 426 and TNC 430 and silently uses alternative methods to detect execution mode and program status. All other data from these controllers can be acquired by specifying PLC addresses on a per-machine-basis. DownloadTOP
We released updated versions of our tool for machine data acquisition and the device driver for monitoring of machines with Heidenhain TNC / iTNC controllers. The updated versions provide an enhanced login method that fixes access problems to specific controllers.
With previous versions some controllers reported “Error accessing area DNC” and refused to output necessary data. This issue is caused by some machine-manufacturer specific NC versions.
