Where to Find ASCII Strings to Send to Fanuc 0i CNC


Thread Starter


I have been trying to connect a CompactLogix to a Fanuc 0i Controller and have found that the CNC requires a TCP/IP connection. I found a company that builds a converter to do just this. The converter communicates with the PLC as though it were a generic CIP device. Then the converter communicates to the Fanuc controller over TCP/IP. Now this is awesome except that I still don't know what data to send. I really want to be able to send offsets to the controller.

However a list off all the items I can manipulate and ASCII strings to go with would be very useful. I have spoken to several people at Fanuc with limited to no help. I may not be using the right terms when asking my questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
