    Default EMCO Concept 55, need ethernet comm protocols

    This is going to be a long shot but I thought I would ask.

    I was given a like new EMCO Concept 55, built 2007. Equipped with 4th axis and 8 station tool changer. Has ethernet communication with the PC, and USB comms to the Fanuc 21 emulator terminal. The machine works, and I am able to jog and home the axes.

    I could use the machine as it is, but I don't want to expend the energy to learn obsolete Fanuc software, I upgraded my lathe just because of this. 30 year old Fanuc software in that case.

    So here is what I want to do: Since everything is in working order, I want to use the existing ACC and write my own software to replace the EMCO WinNc software. I can write the CNC software, no problem there, what I don't have is any clue as to what the command strings and structure looks like across the ethernet connection.

    So before I sit down and write a port sniffer, I thought I would ask if anyone has the command documentation.

    Or do I just rip out the ACC and install a new controller and my software.
