    Looking for a DNC server type app
    similar to this for the palm. It would be a usb to serial communication
    app that would allow me to save machine G code from idustrial machinery.
    ANY help appreciated

    For what machines?

    I'm looking into doing this for my own needs. Is anyone still interested? For what machines? I'm using Milltronics Centurion 5 and 6 controllers.

    Thanks!

    Back in my days of programing, I used the Palm to load and unload Fanuc and Hassle machines. Seems I wrote the app to do this - some time ago. ***** to grow old - folks just put you out to pasture.

    What do you have in mind? I'm thinking a tablet app that will download programs via a Bluetooth serial port. Does that fit your needs?

    Could it work on both table and phone. We do not have any tablets.

    Bluetooth sounds good.

    I don't see why not. I'm just thinking that a cheap Bluetooth tablet (which I'm having a little trouble finding) could stay with each machine. I guess one phone would be sufficient; The operator carries it with him. Pull CNC programs off of a server via Wi-Fi, and then send them through the correct Bluetooth serial port. Sounds workable. I'm currently using my old G1 as a development target, so a phone is a good starting point.

    Or you could just pull the programs off the sd card

    Here is a serial to Bluetooth adapter Newegg.com - SIIG ID-SB0011-S1 RS-232 to Bluetooth Converter

    We do exactly that. Take the serial information to bluetooth. Then we have an android app that reads and displays the information and gives you different options for saving it. Let me know what kind of information you are trying to save and we can customize it for you.

    That should be no problem. I have several projects I am working on and will need a week to finish up. Let me know if you would like to go forward and I will send you my contact information

    Funny how this came back around. Glad to see some interest here. Hadnt worked on this for a while but still very interested!

    This is what I have been looking for since my D1... Please include me as well as I will help as much as possible with the project.
    I just recently found the BlueSnap Bluetooth dongles, these give me hope as in the past I was waiting for USB support and drivers for the USB but they wont be necessary with bluetooth.

    I am tired of dragging my laptop into factories to download simple code like this from machines for backups...

    This is from an older (early 90s) Mazak L32 control (which is Panasonic based)

    Currently I run a program called DNC server. Its an older XP version that is good and light. I can provide you a copy if you like or need it for testing/comparisons.

    I can provide many examples and would really like to beta test.
    Thanks for your time!

    Glad to see you back! When we can get to that stage, I'd love to have you testing. To make this a viable product, I'll probably need to get it tested on as many machines as possible.

    Thanks!

    Yes I think I will be picking up the bluesnap soon. It is highly configurable for different hardware/ software and power options
