From PortCNC - the makers of eNETDNC
Some of the newest CNC’s on the market today now have USB ports to communicate CNC files with the CNC controls. eNetDNC is proud to announce – The New xlCONNECT-U.
Port CNC is the first company to be able to offer a real file
management method of using the USB port.
xlCONNECT-U has a USB port for CNC file transfers besides a serial port to allow you to connect to other eNETDNC hardware such as eHubs, eTerminals & eMonitoring boards. xlCONNECT-U is backwards compatible to reduce cost down the line.
xlCONNECT-U offers all the same communication features as the other eNET equipment such as: the machine tool operator can download files from the company’s proven directory, securely upload files with email verification and automatic file compare. xlCONNECT-U offers printing of their CNC files when uploading or downloading and the naming structure.
The xlConnect-U can be used in conjunction with any other eNETDNC hardware such as their Cabled eNETDNC DNC and Wireless eNETDNC, their eRS Units, FTP or Serial Ports. The eRS Units are 1 Serial to Ethernet with power.
The xlCONNECT-U comes with a 12 volt DC power supply and a 10 foot USB cable. It is available in two models to provide proper connections depending on your machine tools.
Users of the eNETDNC - Ethernet based CNC file management system can connect CNC machine controls using an existing
Flexible, reliable, secure and cost-effective CNC
file management using your existing network!
eNETDNC - Available as Cabled or Wireless or configured
as a combination of both.
Industrial grade hardware and reliable software ensure
data quality is preserved.
Supports all CNC machine control types including proprietary
System can be expanded to support an unlimited number
of machines with no increase in software cost.
Wireless eNETDNC - No issues with shop interference
or noise. Operators access the eNETDNC system as if it were hardwired
to the CNC, with no difference in how the DNC interface functions. Encrypted
eNETDNC LT is a downloadable version of eNETDNC geared
towards the machine shop with one or two machines. eNETDNC LT does
not use the Ethernet connection and is connected directly to the
machine tools using the comport on your computer, usually limiting
the connection to one or two machines
eNetDNC LT has many intuitive features to make editing your CNC files much easier, whether your modifying an existing file or creating a new CNC file you will find the tools in eNETDNC LT will speed up the process.
The interactive plotting features in the eNetDNC LT also help in quickly verifying CNC code and finding mistakes.
Real Time Production Data Directly From the Machine
Machine Monitoring can be implemented with both Cabled
Full-featured data collection system allowing the
machine operator to communicate job-related information directly
from their machine's CNC machine controls.
This data collected via the eNET system is then configured to upload into your existing shop floor management system
eNETDNC is an Ethernet based CNC data management system that provides flexible, secure, reliable and cost effective data management. You can track:
Job changes, shift quantities, set-up times, quality data and other production information
eNET Data Collection can be programed so that operators need punch in and out at shift changes supervisors no longer need to wonder what time the operator actually arrived at the machine.
2D and 3D Back Plotting allows for real time file editing!
This eNET Editor is included with the Cabled & Wireless eNETDNC and eNETDNC LT
- Edit up to ten CNC files simultaneously
- The Smart File Compare feature highlights
file changes for easy review.
- Editor allows up to three axis to be rotated
- Mass Modify any G code value throughout the
- Multi-color G code display enhances editing
- Programmer is able to extend or compress
files for viewing and editing.
- Calculates cycle times of original and modified
files to evaluate productivity gains.
- Right angle and bolt circle calculators
Even older NC machine tools can be used within an
eNETDNC Wireless or Cabled DNC Systems. eNETDNC designs and
builds BTR Interface Boards and factory hardened eNET e-Terminals
thereby allowing older NC machine to be used with the eNETDNC.
