Need some advice. I've fallen 'behind the curve' with all things computer and CAM of late, but have just ordered a seat of OneCNC Mill Advantage & Lathe Express so looking to play catch-up.
I want a datalink between my Windows powered laptop and my Yasnac i80M powered VMC, my Fanuc powered Colchester CNC350 Lathe, and my Heidenhain TNC155 powered Bridgeport mill.
All three machines have a 25 D-pin (RS232?) connector on them. My laptop has no RS232 output. How does one make use of USB connectors? Is there an adaptor I can get? Is it possible to connect the machines wirelessly? Does anyone know whether the OneCNC software handles all comm's or do I need a seperate comms DNC software solution?
Sorry so many questions, and thanks in advance.
