Heidenhain Data Tool Description & Download

(7/31/2019)

We released an updated version of our Heidenhain TNC device driver.

HEIDENHAIN.DLL 3.2.1.0 (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. TOP

(12/5/2018)

Updated versions of our device driver and diagnostic tools for Heidenhain controllers are available.

HEIDENHAIN.DLL 3.2.0.0 (12/5/2018)

  • We fixed an error that led to output of 0 for all PLC dword items from older TNC 426 and 430 controllers were entry ‘Legacy PLC = 1’ was set in the INI file of the driver.
  • Writing and changing of PLC items or machine parameters from MTConnect compatible programs via the CNCnetPDM MTConnect Adapter was improved. TOP

HEIDENHAINDATA.EXE 6.2.0.0 (12/5/2018)

The GUI was completely redesigned. It now supports proper resizing and maximizing. Performance of moving and dragging operations was highly improved.

HEIDENHAINPLC.EXE 6.2.0.0 (12/5/2018)

The GUI was completely redesigned. It now supports proper resizing and maximizing. Performance of moving and dragging operations was highly improved.

HEIDENHAINPLCRW.EXE 6.2.0.0 (12/5/2018)

The GUI was completely redesigned. It now supports proper resizing and maximizing. Performance of moving and dragging operations was highly improved. TOP

(10/29/2018)

We released an enhanced version of our popular tool to read data from Heidenhain controllers. The documentation was also updated, esp. section ‘Controller Setup’.

HEIDENHAINDATA.EXE 6.1.0.0 (3/20/2018)

The program now outputs PLC data as follows from older TNCs (e.g. 426 and 430):

  1. Programmed speed
  2. Target speed
  3. Actual speed
  4. Programmed feed rate
  5. Actual feed rate
  6. Override (% to be divided by 100)
  7. Execution mode (subtract 1 to get real mode)
  • Automatic conversion of PLC data from older TNCs to match the output shown at the operator panel is performed.
  • Axis IDs are added to axis data
  • Cutter positions are output TOP

(10/22/2018)

An updated driver for Heidenhain TNC and iTNC controllers with enhanced functions and features is available. In addition we released a powerful utility for reading PLC data.

HEIDENHAIN.DLL 3.1.0.0 (10/22/2018)

  • The driver can now output up to 35 items per reading cycle
  • In addition to axis data the position of all cutters can be read
  • Acquisition of machine-parameters is supported

  • Machine parameters of the controller can now also be set by an external program or via CNCnetControl
  • By an additional switch this driver now enables to output PLD byte, word and dword data from older TNC 426 or 430 controllers in a proper format that matches the values shown at the controller TOP

HEIDENHAINPLC.EXE 6.1.0.0 (10/22/2018)

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.

HEIDENHAINPLCRW.EXE 6.1.0.0 (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. TOP

(3/20/2018)

Updated tools for machine data acquisition and Heidenhain device drivers are available. In addition the programs now support the ‘free license’ model of CNCnetPDM 5.0.0.0 with no limitations on time and number of connected devices. CNCnetPDM 5.0.0.0 is required for the device driver.

HEIDENHAINDATA.EXE 5.0.0.0 (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.

HEIDENHAIN.DLL 2.0.0.0 (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. TOP

(3/13/2018)

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.

HEIDENHAINDATA.EXE 4.9.1.0 (3/13/2018)

Utility program (GUI) to read machine and process data from Heidenhain TNC and iTNC controllers.

HEIDENHAIN.DLL 1.9.0.0 (3/13/2018)

CNCnetPDM device driver for monitoring of process- and machine-data from machines with Heidenhain TNC and iTNC controllers. TOP
