I need a little help communicating via the rs232 port on my KIA kt15.
If I understand the manual correctly the db25 connector on the side of the machine is rs232 connector 2.
Iam attempting to communicate at 2400 baud.
I have param #6207 (input) and Param #6209 (output) set as follows
D4=0 (STOP BIT 1),
D5=0 (TRANSMITS CONTROL CODE),
I have # 6003 set as follows
6002 bit7 = 1
I dont see any setting for parity so its set as none in my DNC software , which is the Xtransfer program included in mastercam, I have all the settings in the program set to match the lathe.
I bring up the transfer program, choose receive and get the familiar listening message. On the lathe I choose edit, program, reset, key in the program number , then push out. The computer responds with receiving and once done a complete message pops up.
The program I am attempting to transfer is then on screen with the correct number of lines and the correct number of characters on each line but the bulk of them are just question marks (?) .
Could someone give me an idea of what I might need to change ?
When I try to transfer from the computer to the lathe I get the "IN" message flashing at the bottom of the screen on the lathe , I push the send button in my software and a few seconds later the popup says complete but the "in" message just continues flashing on the lathe and it never seems to receive the program.
Any help or thoughts on what I have set wrong greatly appreciated
