    Question Serial transfer on oi-TD, input mode always on

    Hello.

    I have done this same setup on older controls (21 for example) and now I am trying the same on a very recent oi-TD.

    Using a null model cable and setting up the serial transmission of a simple program, I place the control on receive mode. In this case the INPUT word is blinking - on older controls it was shown LSK.
    Then I send the program from the PC.
    Program content ends with the % character and a new line.

    Now the issue:
    While on older controls, when the program ends, the control automatically leaves the "receive mode" and shows the program on "edit mode", on this control it never leaves the INPUT blinking and when I press CANCEL I can observe that the program was correctly received (on first attempts I was thinking that nothing was received) but in fact it was correctly received.

    Not sure if some parameter needs to be changed or the "end of file" content should be other so that the control acknowledges that indeed the program transfer ended.

    Advice is welcome. Changing the cable is not a very good option as the client is remote (another country).
    Thank you

    Take a look at 3201 bit #6.

    Thank you. I will ask for bit #6 to be changed to 0.
    I will reply if this fixed the issue.

    My program ends in:

    M30
    %

    so this is probably helpful. Thank you

    Good morning.
    This parameter, bit #6 (NPE) was already set as 0, so, unfortunately the proposed solution did not worked on this case.

    Good morning. There is no other possible solution?
    No one here that uses the same controller and serial port transfer?
    I am still on the same spot as I was.
    Thank you

    Thank you
    Maybe you have the RS232 channel open in the I/O menu where you can connect online for the FAPT LADDER
    PMCCNF->ONLINE

    Thank you for the answer.
    You suggest that the PMCCNF it set to OFFLINE or similar? I am not near the machine so I do not know what to say to the end customer.
    Thank you

    The current settings are attached (image) I hope this is the menu that you are referring to, but I do not find the related setting.
    Thank you for your time.

    Re: Serial transfer on oi-TD, input mode always on

    Thank you for your information.
    I have tested and the setting was on USE mode. I tested also in NOT USE and the result was the same.
    I have attached the menu where the setting was changed. Maybe something can be observed that might indicate something wrong.
    I also included the file input being used. The INPUT word is blinking during the transmission and stays forever blinking until the user presses the CANCEL button.
    Last image is how the program ends, that I think is correct.

    Yes program is completely received on the CNC.
    Code is sent by my own software (that works ok on several other machines, using a null modem cable, as this one)
    Parameter 3201 is currently set as:

    0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0

    Make the parameter 3201 as:
    01000000

    Re: Serial transfer on oi-TD, input mode always on

    Once again thank you for the answer.
    But from what I read, set #6 to 1 will mean that the program is assumed to be NOT completed when M02, M30 or M99 is found.
    Would not this what we wanted to happen?

    I checked like 5 backups from different machines and all have the 3201 like that so I assume is normal

    Thank you.
    I asked that to be tested. My customer is in a different continent and is late there already.
    When I know the results, I will inform.
    Thank you
