CALMOTION USBCNC-FADAL MEMORY INTERFACE


CNC controller with integral DNC functionality.

USBCNC-FAD88: $599

The USBCNC-FAD88 disk reader control acts as an interface between commercially available USB flash memory and any Fadal CNC 88 using the RS-232 port located at the rear of the machine. USB connectivity can be achieved with any Fadal control. The USBCNC-FAD88 contains integrated DNC functionality for drip feed operation of large files from a USB key. Operation of the USBCNC is done using the machine's keyboard and monitor. Designed for easy field installation, the total time required for USB connectivity is usually less than 5 minutes. The USBCNC-FAD88 controller has all the same features as the Fadal CNC floppy drive option, but with far greater memory storage, speed, and solid-state reliability.

CALMOTION USBCNC-FADAL-SW INTERNAL INTERFACE


USBCNC-FAD-SW: $499

This is a USB internal interface for your Fadal CNC88 control that provides an alternative method of transferring programs to/from PC and the true beauty is drip feeding with no wires or noise interference problems as with cables. Operators can instantly choose their CNC file source. (Remote PC or panel mount USB key) No A/B switch boxes or other physical connections are required once installed.


Pictured below is the internal switch box version of the USBCNC controller and is compatible with all serial DNC software including Fadal NC, DNC Software, Predator, MasterCam, SurfCAM, Virtual Gibbs, and FeatureCAM. USBCNC controller with integral DNC firmware. Includes serial port pass through for connection to existing serial networks.

The USBCNC-FAD88 disk reader control acts as an interface between commercially available USB flash memory and any Fadal CNC 88. The addition of a Calmotion USBCNC controller allows users to load and punch programs to any commercially available USB memory device. The USBCNC-FAD-SW also contains integrated DNC functionality for drip feed operation of large files. The proximity of the USBCNC-FAD-SW to the control ensures the highest baud rate communication possible with a Fadal CNC.


The USBCNC-FAD-SW allows users to maintain their exiting serial networks by operating in pass through mode. Normal serial interface is maintained. In USB mode, the operator can load, punch, and DNC files from any USB memory device.

Features:

  • Help menu with a list of all commands
  • Allows normal connections to a remote RS-232 host PC
  • View list of files on USB key from a remote PC
  • Directory listing
  • DNC operation
  • Mid tape start with text search option
  • Baud rate change command

CALMOTION LANCNC-FADAL MEMORY INTERFACE

 

Ethernet data server for Fadal CNC's.

LANCNC-FAD: $499

The LANCNC-FAD controller brings Ethernet functionality to Fadal machining centers. Program files can be sent to/from the data server and any Fadal CNC. Large files that will not fit in the memory of the CNC can be drip fed (DNC) directly from the data server. The standard capacity is 2 GB with options for additional memory storage. The LANCNC-FAD has been designed to operate with standard software that comes with a PC such as Internet Explorer from Microsoft. There are no additional licenses or interface software requirements. A programmer can simply drag and drop a file from his PC to the data server. Once loaded on the server, an operator can load the file into CNC memory or drip feed a program directly from the file server. File data is stored locally on a standard SD memory card. In the event of a network crash, data can still be accessed by the CNC which eliminates risk due to network outages. Files can be added manually without the network if required by removing the SD card and updating on a PC.

 

 

Features:

  • Drag and drop files to and from the CNC data server
  • Ethernet connection using standard FTP Protocol. No special software required
  • 10/100 BaseT Ethernet. Low cost wireless option available
  • DNC (drip feed) operation from data server
  • Commands executed from machine's pendant
  • Mid tape start with search function
  • Insert preparatory data prior to DNC operation
  • Tape input for file loading to CNC memory
  • connects to any version of Fadal CNC Controller
  • Save/restore machine parameter and survey information
  •  Help Menu
  • Directory listing
  • DNC with XMODEM
  • Punch tooling and program data to the data server
  • Punch of tooling data only
  • Punch of current program only
  • Punch of machine parameters
  • Punch machine's survey data
  • Includes all required cables and 2GB SD card
 
 
 

 

RELIABILITY

Local storage of the data server information guarantees uninterrupted machine uptime in the event of a network crash. File information is stored on a removable SD memory card such as those used in digital cameras. Standard file storage size is 1GB. Larger SD cards can be used to expand the server storage capacity. The LANCNC-FAD server connects directly to the CNC independently of the network. In the event the network becomes unavailable, the operator can access files on the server where the CNC program information resides. In the event of a network crash, the SD memory card can be easily removed and taken to a PC for an update. The SD memory card can then be reinstalled into the LANCNC-FAD for immediate use. Files can also be punched from the machine to the server without requiring network resources. The LANCNC-FAD data server can gather and store machine information including machine parameters as well as survey data. A user can save and restore machine information if needed in the event that they are lost or modified while a machine is being serviced.

WIRELESS CONNECTION

The LANCNC-FAD can be easily turned into a wireless server by adding a low cost wireless router. Multiple port connections of most wireless routers provide a wireless connection to several LANCNC-FAD units.
