    OI-MC series -- FOCAS Help required to get data

    Hi All

    We are looking to get data out of a cnc machine that has fanuc controller (series OI-MC). The controller has a serial port and i am not sure if there is a pcmcia card slot although looking through the data sheet I believe we can add one to the controller.

    I have used Focas library earlier on latest series of CNC machines that has Ethernet out and it is quite simple.

    In the current scenario I want to know if the below is possible,

    1) can I connect to serial port of cnc machine with my laptop directly and use a focas based application to get data out of it directly.

    2) Can i use a serial to Ethernet converter and then use the Ethernet out to my laptop and use focas based application to get data out of it.

    In the 2nd point how would i know the IP address of the cnc controller.


    Thanks

    You can use the Embedded port on the CNC. It is located on the back side of the controller. (Behind the monitor)

    Thanks for your response. Are you talking about the embedded Ethernet port ??
    Should I just connect the LAN cable and use the FOCAS libraries ??

    Ethernet on the 0i-MC is an option check you have it

    depending what data you want out you can use DPRINT commands via RS232

    Yes, I am referring to the Fanuc sells FAS Connect to just what you want to do. They have a free 30 day Demo that you can try before you buy. D72F-0499-PB00 FAS SOLUTIONS DEMO DVD Check it out. You should have the embedded Ethernet port.

    0imc should come standard with Ethernet. Fanuc lists it as standard, high speed Ethernet is an option .

    Re: OI-MC series -- FOCAS Help required to get data

    Hello,
    For some Fanuc CNC’s we observe Focas2 inside PCMCIA option. It doesn’t has EMBED option and not even the embedded ethernet port. In such cases, how to connect and collect data using Focas2 library?

    Any reply is thankful
