Can a sub program be "called" through the RS232 from a main program in memory?
If so how?
Thanks ... I think?
My subprograms are too big for memory.
Prog's smaller... can't.
I thought maybe Main with Sub from RS232, drip feed (probably to slow to be practical anyway) but running pallet changer which already has a main program assigned by manufacturer to the pallet (pallet 1 = prog 1, etc). So I'm forced to start from the main in the memory... I think?
Well, you can copy the pallet changer program into your program as one solution. As far as making programs smaller, even without seeing yours, I will disagree. Programs created with CAM software are always larger than they absolutely have to be. Now, that does not mean they can always be reduced to a size that will fit into the available machine memory. But they can be made smaller.
Ok, without beating on it yes smaller, not small enough. Been there.
It's a six pallet pool. Prog#'s 1-6 assigned to the pallets. Enabling a pallet as "ready" automatically goes to the assigned program. i.e. Enable pallet 4 and it grabs prog 4. What happens in prog 4 is up to you.
I don't see a way to run DNC when things have to start within a a Main 1-6.
Also not aware that folding the sub into the main is an option, when coming
from DNC. Remember... it doesn't fit.
Wondering if there has been any memory board add ons or mod's that a USB stick could be plugged into?
The replacement board for the old bubble memory board gives you a whole bunch more memory. Last time I bought one~4 years ago, it was about 1500.
