Just got myself a TM-1P
Brand Spanking New.
I'm trying to wire up the RS232 port to receive programs from Mastercam X5 and am having some issues.
I can receive the programs from the PC just fine, providing I tell the Haas to receive, before I tell Mastercam to transmit.
This is a hassle.
With an old Anilam 1100 that I have, I can have Mastercam send the program, walk over to the mill, and click receive.
The PC has patiently waited until the Control is ready to receive before sending.
Can I make the Haas do the same?
I would like to not have to do 2 trips to get a program.
I sure would like to sit down, program, send, then go to the Haas and recieve.
Right now it's sit down, program, go to Haas, tell it to receive, go BACK to PC, tell it to transmit, go back to Haas.
A lot of annoying and unnecessary walking...
