Version 4.5 new !
Control and monitor Heidenhain TNC through serial ports and Ethernet (TCP/IP)
The SuperCom Heidenhain Library enables fast and accurate data acquisition of machine and process state data from Heidenhain controlled machines.
The SuperCom Heidenhain Library contains functions to build stable and fast data connections to one or more Heidenhain TNC controllers. The connection can be setup using the serial interfaces or the TCP / IP protocol stack (Ethernet connection). The connection can be made locally within the factory or over a large distance via Modem, Internet or ISDN connection (see also SuperCom Suite).
The functions contained in the SuperCom Heidenhain Library, are all in-house development (as common to the SuperCom software) and do not use any tools or libraries from third-party providers but directly access the TNC themselves.
The SuperCom Heidenhain Library supports data communication to different Heidenhain TNC through serial lines or TCP/IP (Ethernet connection).
Acquire and monitor Heidenhain TNC machine state data, machine states or process data. Several functions enable fast data acquisition of the machine status. Collect data from the Heidenhain TNC machines (data collection software) or monitor the machine status (Machine Monitoring Software) of multiple machines simultaneously.
Loading and executing NC programs, checking files and directories, retrieving and examining machine parameters, log files (logbook), tool tables and much more. The SuperCom Heidenhain Library also contains direct memory access functions that can be used to retrieve or modify data directly from the PLC memory. The access to even rare information is thus easily possible.
The overall information provided by the SuperCom functions by many different ways also enables monitoring a TNC machine status.
A Heidenhain TNC client simply connects to the SuperCom Heidenhain library with older and newer TNCs that have a serial or TCP/IP connection.
The SuperCom Heidenhain Library almost hides the complexity of the data communication to a Heidenhain TNC and provides functions that perform the most wanted tasks by using simple function calls. SuperCom establishes the connection to the Heidenhain TNC directly via the serial port or the TCP/IP protocol stack. The whole data communication is running transparently in background using high-speed functions achieving rapid results.
The SuperCom Heidenhain Library is accessing the TNC directly without using any other third software layer (e. g. OPC Server) that may cause delays.
SuperCom's Event-Driven file transfer functions enable accurate monitoring of the file transfer progress, providing continuously status information to the application, if needed.
The library includes high-speed functions for event-driven file transfer to and from the Heidenhain TNC (send files, receive files), list directories, create or delete directories, rename or delete files, read TNC configuration data, retrieve machine status, machine data, process data, read and write memory etc.
Retrieve information like TNC type, NC-Version, PLC-Version and software version. Handle directories and files. Transfer files. Query program information (e.g. Name, Path, Program Block Number, active program, selected program), Errors, Execution | Operating Mode, Program Status, Overrides Values, Machine up time, Machine running time, Tool Info, Axes config, Axes position, Cutter location, DNC Mode, Spindle Speed (Nominal, Actual,..), Temperatures, and more. Read/Write memory locations, markers, counters, inputs, outputs, timers, query and modify machine parameters and configuration values, log entries, Read and change tables, setting of special Q parameters, axes positioning , ...
of information may vary between the different machines (machine specific limits).
The SuperCom Heidenhain Library implements the protocol functions using a SuperCom communication library (serial or TCP/IP) and the SuperCom LSV/2 protocol module* that provides a stable data communication link.
*Included with this library.
The SuperCom library provides fast and rock solid functions to extract information and control one or more TNC machines. It enables the software developer to control many connections to different TNC machines simultaneously. It enables to query information by different ways thus increasing the amount of information retrieved. Also, the amount of information supported and returned by the different TNC machines may differ.
There is only one API to learn! The same functions and parameters used with serial, TCP/IP or ISDN type of connections. Many sample programs are included.
