    Default Setup Centurion 7 controller as offline trainer/simulator?

    Long story short, I have access to a Cent7 control panel that was taken off of a VM15-30. I was wondering if it would be possible to use it as an offline trainer/simulator.
    Currently I’m able to boot up and start to load the CNC 7.7382 program, but of course it errors out with “interface not detected” since the fiber optic cable from the NCB board doesn’t go anywhere.
    Is there any type of jumper configuration on the NCB board that would allow the control to fully boot? Or does anyone have any documentation pertaining to the PC-NCB-03 board?

    Well I managed to find one jumper position that allows the control to initialize and load the CNC program.

    However, I am unable to make/edit or load any new programs (buttons greyed out) and I cant get into F1 Setup (also greyed out) either.

    Is this due to the 449 drive fault error?

    Turns out there's no need to add any jumpers on the board to make this work. A simple edit to the autoexec.bat file will allow the control to work independently.

    Going through the troubleshooting guide to see what I could do about the 449 Error I found this.



    I searched for "cnc n" in the 7000 series manual and found this section.



    Just add one of the switches to the autoexec.bat file where it calls the CNC program.
    I tried the "n" switch (demo mode?), but I couldn't use the front panel Cycle Start when verifying a program.
    Using the "f" switch seems to work fine.
