DNC / file transfer settings for Meldas 60/60s Series  

From the Meldas manual:

There are basically two types of input/output parameters which must be set when inputting, outputting or referring to data, or when performing tape operation.
One type is the parameters related to the input/output device. The baud rate, etc., is set according to each device. Up to five types of input/output devices can be registered.
The other type of input/output parameters is the I/O base parameters which determine which device is connected to which channel per input/output application.

Set the following parameters on the machine:

BASE PARAMETERS

I/O
Port #
Device #
Name
Data In 9001=2 9002=1 IN
Data Out 9003=2 9004=0 out
Tape Mode 9005=2

Sometimes file transfer will not run, even if all the settings are correct. Go to this page for solutions.

Once you have ConnectCNC and your CNC machines communicating, we strongly suggest you take the following precautions:
- Download some programs, the longer the better, from your CNC to the pc. Save them under a temporary filename so you don't overwrite the original files. Examine them for errors such as dropped or changed text.
Do this for the first few programs that you use.

These settings have been collected from users of our software and machine tool distributers. We have listed them to help users of ConnectCNC to communicate between their computers and CNC controls.
Since we have no control over the many variables involved, including such things as cable conditions, modifications to machines, condition of computer hardware, etc., we take no responsibility for any damage caused to programs or machines through the use of this software.
