    Fanuc 6T rs232 troubles!

    Well guys I got it!! thank you all for your guidance and support! Turns out I had a program that was looking at that certain com1 port and not allowing dnc4u to use it. Once I disabled everything it worked like a charm! So glad I'm over that project...on to the next one. Thanks again!

    Fanuc 6T rs232 troubles!

When I go to DNC wizard the software finds com3 port and everything looks good but it never sees the signal to start sending. In my hardware setting on my computer my port is setup under com1 ?? When I rename it to...

    Fanuc 6T rs232 troubles!

    Thanks angelw that makes me feel more confident on the right model I have, as all of those you described matched my 6TB. I called fanuc today and they were very nice. They give me a pinout and some setting that I had different. I'm hoping that will work!!

    Fanuc 6T rs232 troubles!

    Ok I went back and ordered a db9 and db25 plug with a breakout board on it. I think that will be a lot easier than trying to make a new plug every time I want to change the pinout. I also went and took the serial port loose from the front of the control cabinet and took a few pics. I followed...

    Fanuc 6T rs232 troubles!

    Well I'm convinced I must have a pinout issue, I downloaded the dnc4u free trial and ran the dncwizard and never could communicate with it. When I tested using the loop back system everything worked as it should. I just don't understand how or why this is being so frustrating I followed the...

    I went back changed my whole setup, got a different computer with a nine pin TRUE serial port. The crazy thing is still not working. Should the tape reader be running during all of this?? I can open the small door covering the tape reader and the little wheel is turning non stop. Even if my...

    Fanuc 6T rs232 troubles!

    ok guys I really have searched the web and have found a lot of good information but none as of now has helped me.

    Fanuc 6T programming question

    I have a cnc lathe with a fanuc 6T control on it. Build date is around 1983 if that matters. I notice on the controls I have a button that reads position record. How does this button work and what are the advantages to it? Any help would greatly be appreciated thanks.

    Pratt & Whitney turnmate toolholders needed

    Atex I have made my own as well but I wouldn't mind some drawings if it's not hard to send. That way I have something to reference to instead of measuring every dimension every time lol

    Pratt & Whitney turnmate toolholders needed

    When I bought my lathe I had the tooling atex57 mentioned and was also running short. They are not hard to make but I would also be interested if someone had a good connection on them.
