After having tried for so much time now, I think I will get crazy.
I do need this machine to work.
I had to sell two VMC with Fanuc control for a reorganisation now I am left with the R2E3 that I am not able to connect to.
I need to make more complecated part.
Just to explain I worked in the past on many project involving serial communication and I never had problem with that.
reading the post here and the manuals I still have a lot of questions unanswered.
I also seen that a lot of peoples have problems with communication on this machine.
So maybe if we could make a complete tour of the question?
I have some and maybe other have some also.
Cable: Could we have the exact configuration for the AMP to the DB9?
Port A and Port B: what is the exact difference?
Do we realy need to communicate in old tru DOS?
I already use my laptop to comunicate with my Fanuc 6T turning center?
What is the exact syntax in either case for upload ,download and DNC?
Is theres a way to set the parameter in the control (other than baud rate)?
Maybe some of the machines had comunication as an option?
Do you know if they were prone to had bad problem with the communication board?.
Any tought on the subject could be much apreciated.
