    Help recieving and transmitting files to Fanuc 6M

    Hi all,
    I have an old Kitamaru Mycenter-4 with a Fanuc 6MB controller. I'm having a very hard time trying to get the machine to send and receive files. What I have done up to this point is:

    Set the settings:
    TV Check:0
    Punch code:1
    Input device 1:1
    Input device 2:1

    Set the parameters:
    311:00011001
    340:2
    341:2

    The pin settings are:
    CNC PC
    7 ----------- 7
    2 ----------- 3
    3 ----------- 2
    4 ----------- 5
    5 ----------- 4

    6 |
    8 | - are connected on the CNC side
    20|

    I am using the software DNC Precision in order to receive and transmit.

    Hey,

    Settings are ok, the cable isn't.
    Check websites like Easydnc or aggsoft or many others for the correct pin connection, PC-Modem 9 pin to CNC-port 25 pin.

    I should have specified that I'm using a PC 25 pin as well as a CNC 25 pin, are those cable settings still incorrect?

    Ok, not sure, but Google ( pictures) Fanuc 6M RS232 connection and you will find the correct one, with or without handshake.

    Ok, my pin locations are correct, I am able to receive files from the CNC but I am unable to send them, I am just transmitting through my DNC then, in edit mode, typing O1001 (program # I made for it), then pressing READ but nothing is happening, am I missing something?

    OK, try it the other way around.
    In EDIT mode -- O1001 [ READ ] or [INPUT ] then on PC-side [ SEND ] via your DNC-software.

    I tried doing it the other way around, the word "edit" is still flashing in the bottom right-hand corner, nothing seems to have happened.

    Ok, I can't help you with this one, our "oldest" Fanuc is an 0T and it says LSK when it waits for a receive from PC

    I don't think its a problem with the actual program, it looks like this:
    %
    O1001
    N10 G90 G94 G17 G49 G40 G80
    ...
    N155 M30
    %

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ok, thank you for your help Heavy_Metal

    Make sure O1001 doesn't already exist in memory.

    I just hit [READ] in Edit mode and the

    %
    :1001
    ....

    or
    %
    O1001
    ....

    in your program file will save it under that program number.

    To punch out or delete a program you will have to type out the program number then hit the corresponding key.
