I am able to send programs to the Mill via the RS232 by using a buffered input and run the programs but every time I try to save the file to the controller I get an alarm. The controler has 95% availible memory
Here is how the program starts:
BEGIN PREDATOR NC HEADER)
(MACH_FILE=HAAS - 3XVMILL.MCH)
(MTOOL T6 S1 D.123 H5. A0. C0. DIAM_OFFSET 6 = .0615)
(MTOOL T5 S1 D.091 H5. A0. C0. DIAM_OFFSET 5 = .0455)
(SBOX X-1.3616 Y-.2324 Z-1. L1.4241 W.4648 H1.)
(END PREDATOR NC HEADER)
O100 (PROGRAM NUMBER)
(PROGRAM NAME - NEW TIP 3H3000-069P012_032006.TXT)
(POST - HAAS VF)
(DATE - MON. 12/27/2010)
(TIME - 04:56PM)
G00 G17 G20 G40 G49 G80 G90
G91 G28 Z0.
G91 G28 X0. Y0.
(FIRST CUT - FIRST TOOL)
(JOB 1 POCKET)
G90 G54 X-.8852 Y-.0183 S9168 M03
G43 H06 Z.1 M08
I dont think its a format issue. I think I am trying to save the program using the wrong proceedure. How should I be saving a program to the controler via the RS232.
