4 Data transfer using FOCAS1
With the FOCAS1 (FANUC Open CNC API Specifications version 1)
window function, cutting condition data can be transferred between a
personal computer, the CNC, and the PMC via Ethernet (TCP/IP) or
HSSB (High Speed Serial Bus).
This allows a large amount of cutting condition data to be held in the
personal computer and used.
This function cannot be used when the option for additional cutting
condition registration is specified.
For details on how to use the function, refer to the FOCAS1 data
window library specifications.
