Windows® Support through WNC Supply – Cimcom has been tested on Stand-Alone machines running Win 95/98/ME/2000/XP/Vista & 7 – 10 32bit, and NT4 Workstation, on peer networks using Win 95 and 98, and TCP/IP based networks running Win NT 3.51 and NT4 Server with Win 95/98 workstations. Using your installed Windows networking support Cimcom can use fully qualified network paths for User Profile storage folders. If the path exists in your network browser, then you can use that path with Cimcom. Though version 4.0 is not intended to be a multi-user release, with care, it can be installed on your network server and run from any Windows client machine.
User Interface – Cimcom’s interface makes using the program much easier for new and old users alike. Most Cimcom features can be accessed through a variety of methods (menus, push buttons). With this interface the port status can always be displayed.
User Profile Management – Cimcom improves your ability to save various configurations to individual ‘User Profiles’. This allows you to setup a profile for each user, machine tool, or serial (rs232c) device that Cimcom would communicate with. Then selecting a different configuration is as simple as selecting the desired User Profile. These user profiles have been improved with Windows network support and increased capacity.
More Features – Cimcom v4.0 can now indicate which line in a cable may be malfunctioning, or what caused a data transfer to terminate. It also supports machines that use Hardware Handshaking (RTS/CTS as their flow control method). We’ve also added a new Help System that effectively provides the User’s Manual On-Line.
Improved Terminal Support – With v4.0 Cimcom provides an ANSI terminal emulator to provide support for older controls that previously used teletypes as their data input devices, such as older Bridgeport Boss controls. Using Cimcom can bring most of the benefits of DNC without the expensive hardware costs.
TWO WAY COMMUNICATION BETWEEN CNC CONTROLLER AND COMPUTER
Cimcom RS232c Software is a flexible communication system for your IBM-PC. CIMCOM uploads part programs from your computer’s hard disk to your CNC machine tool controller. After you have massaged and edited the program on the machine, CIMCOM will download it back into a file you designate. WNC can assist you by making your cables for CNC hookup (RS232C or USB). We can supply switch boxes and USB adaptor cable with driver.
SEND/RECEIVE TO CNC OR PUNCH/READ A TAPE IN ASCII or EIA
If you need a punched tape of your part program, CIMCOM will handle this task with equal ease. You have your choice of producing a punched tape in ASCII – ISO or EIA format. CIMCOM will read an ASCII – ISO or EIA tape and send it to a disk file, to the printer, or just to your screen for reviewing.
Set up communication parameters such as serial port number, baud rate, parity, data bits, stop bits, and timeout delay for an unlimited number of your output devices (punch, reader, controller). You can specify the length of tape leader/trailer, termination character and upper case conversion. Man-readable characters may be punched at the beginning of each tape according to what you type in.
WNCEDIT® full screen EDITOR features mouse support (but not required), mass changes, insert, delete, mark areas to cut and/or paste from buffer, search, PgUp/Dn, Home, End, on-line help, whole or multiple line delete or paste and much more. Below is the main editing screen. It has been integrated into version 4.0 of Cimcom.
SEQNO® FILE RE SEQUENCING feature performs many operations dealing with sequence numbers (N0001, N0002, etc). You may set beginning and ending numbers. Set the N letter to any letter. Then set the increment (by 1, 10, etc) and ask for leading zeros if needed. Next, set the line number to begin sequence numbers and remove all sequence numbers. Finally, select special characters which should not receive sequence numbering. It has been integrated into version 4.0 of Cimcom.
WNC can assist you by making your cables for punches, BTR’s or CNC hookup (RS232C) and can supply switch boxes. We can help you wire all your machines to your computer without visiting your shop. Usually all we need is the control make and length of cable you will need. Take advantage of our 48 years of experience. If you require a cable, one or more can be ordered using our shopping cart on RS232C page. This may be your best option, since each punch or CNC controller may require a different wiring scheme. For this reason, pin outs are not supplied with CIMCOM and will not be given out over the telephone. Our cable making department will usually ship even a special cable the same day ordered.
