    RS 422 is not a standard port on most PC's. Also the CNC may not have this port either. The constants for RS 422 are showing, but the hardware in the CNC may not be there. Anyway you can "Google" RS 422 if you wish to learn about it.

    Did you try to completely power off machine after changing N770, then restart and see what happens?

    I was turn the power off and restart the machine after changing constant N770.

    I have to check one more thing with you. When i am push the "PROG MEM" key, then "ID DIR", then "DATA IN/OUT" and if i now push at the "menu" key then i got two choice "1. DATA IN/OUT" and "2. DNC LOCAL".

    When i choose "1 DATA IN/OUT" mode, and hit the "DATA IN/OUT" key, and input, then it looks at the same way as it do when i have set the constant N770 to 0(=V24). An extra line comes up where it stands "DATA, PM, N". But i still can´t send/recieve any programs. And when i try to send program from the machine, it start to count lines in the program. And it looks like you succeed with the transfer, but nothing is coming out fom the machine?

    And if i choose "2 DNC Local" and hit the "DATA IN/OUT" key, and choose "Input or output" then it does´nt happen anything and after a while the errorcode D84 comes up?

    But when i have set the machine constant N770 to 0 and go to "PROG MEM", then "ID DIR", then "DATA IN/OUT" and if i try to hit the "MENU" key, then i don´t got any choices? If i choose the "DATA INPUT" the extra line comes up with "DATA, PM, N" and i could send the programs from the Pc to machine with no problems.

    Do you have this two choices, "1 DATA IN/OUT" and "2 DNC LOCAL" at your machine?

    I never get the option DNC Local on our machines. I wonder if you have a different software version in your control. If you select DNC it is normal to get an error code, because you don't have the DNC software on your PC. The CNC is trying to setup a DNC link with the DNC software on the PC. If it can't find it, it will time-out and give an alarm code.

    When you say that you see program lines being read out at the CNC, but you get nothing at the PC sounds strange. Maybe a hyperterminal problem.
    Are you setting hyperterminal to recieve before you start to output from the CNC?

    Today i was try with a stationary pc(I have a laptop before), and now i could send and recieve programs in V24 mode(MC N770 =0). Still the same problem to start the machinein V24 mode, and when i turn the constant back to V11/V24 then i could run the machine but not send/recieve any programs......

    I guess that when i set the V11/V24 mode to machine, then the 25-pol com-port will be a RS 422 com-port, and with V24 mode the 25-pol com-port will be a RS 232 port? And it seems like the DNC run through RS 422 internal? That´s why i can´t run the machine when i change to V24 mode?

    I don´t know anything about that, but somebody maby know how it work?

    Hi all,

    Unfortunatly i can't change some parameters esp N770 !! in attached pic's you can see what's going on.

    and N774 is not existing, I was able to transfer machine parameters to PC but when i try to send data to CNC only 2 lines appear then Error D43.

    does anyone experienced such problem?

    I urgently in need of post processor.

    jalal:

    the reason you can't change the constants, is because they are locked. To unlock the constants, do this.

    1. Go to the constants screen and press the OPER MC softkey.
    2. Change constant N80 C0 to N80 C1, then ENTER, and STORE.
    3. Press the MANUAL key. Now the control will re-boot, and hydraulics will turn off.
    4. Go back to the constants screen and press the EDIT MC softkey.
    5. Now BE VERY CAREFUL !!! what you change. It is best if you write down what the constants were before you change them, incase you make a mistake and have to go back to original values.
    6. Remember each time you change a number, you must press ENTER, then STORE.
    7. Finally go back to constant N80 C1, and change back to N80 C0. then press MANUAL to reboot control. If you don't change N80 to C0. machine will not start.

    What protocol are you using in hyperterminal? Xmodem, Ymodem, Kermit, Zmodem ?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    I´m not use hyperterminal anymore, i only use Edgecam now and it works perfect! I don´t remember what protocol i was use, but i think it was the Xmodem?

    Hi!

    Now, 10 years later
    Is there a good solution on this thing, i need a software, a free one? that can transfer the .nc files from a PC to the Maho Philips 432 control.
    I have the cable... (if i can use the same that Xnet use....)

    The machine is going to be moved from our job and home to one of our colleege. And he wants to use it for hobby. So if there is any free software to transfer the files over to the controll, and maby DNC option, i would be glad!

    Thanks
