CALMOTION LANCNC-FADAL MEMORY INTERFACE

 

Ethernet controller for Fadal CNC's.

LANCNC-FAD: $499

The LANCNC-FAD controller, designed especially for Fadal CNC’s, provides FTP server functionality for Fadal machining centers. This unique controller allows users to add an Ethernet or wireless data server at the CNC. 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 1 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 additional 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. An operator can also save a program from machine memory onto the server. Commands are typed into the LANCNC-FAD controller via the Fadal machine tool pendant keypad. The file information is viewed on the monitor as if it were an integral part of the control. An active help menu displays all of the available commands, eliminating the requirement to memorize file interface commands.
 
A search and mid-tape start function is also available providing a machine operator the ability to start at a specific location in a program file in the case of tool breakage. Preparatory data can also be typed in prior to executing a mid-tape start. X-Modem protocol can also be selected to ensure the highest level of data packet transmission communication with the CNC.

 

Features:

  • Drag and drop files to and from 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
  • Local connection of the server to the CNC that is independent from the network eliminates risk due to network outages.
  • SD Memory card file storage in case of network outage
  • Commands executed from machine’s pendant.
  • Mid-tape start with search function.
  • Insert preparatory data prior to DNC operation
  • Tape input for file loading into CNC memory
  • Punch CNC memory file to data server
  • Multiple directory file support
  • Connects to any version of Fadal CNC controller.
  • Save and restore machine parameters

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 control using the RS-232 port located at the rear of the machine. 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.
