NOTE PMC–PA3 is usable with the Power Mate–D/H. PMC–SA1 is usable with the loader control function of the Series 21i. PMC–SA3 is usable with the FANUC NC Board.

With the online function of the FAPT LADDER–II or ladder editing package, the following can be performed using the personal computer: D Ladder monitor display D Online ladder editing D PMC parameter display and editing D Signal state monitor display and modifications D Input/output to and from the PMC (loading from the PMC, storing to the PMC) D Writing to flash ROM Before this online function can be used, communication conditions must be set in the PMC built into the CNC.

2 USE (Channel 2) Selects FAPT LADDER–II (channel 2). 574 . 8. two pages are used for screen display. For communication with the ladder editing package (1) Move the cursor to the F–BUS item with the and keys.5. For details of operation. 24 is changed. refer to the operator’s manual for the FAPT LADDER–II or ladder editing package. The online function is operated from the FAPT LADDER–II or ladder editing package.2 Setting Method 1. 8. This completes the setting for communication. Selects FAPT LADDER–II (channel 1). 24. 24 0 1 Setting on the PMC online monitor screen RS–232C NOT USE USE (Channel 1) F–BUS USE NOT USE NOT USE NOT USE Description Selects the ladder editing package. For communication with FAPT LADDER–II (1) Check that NOT USE is set for the RS–232C item. (2) Select USE with the “²” or “³” key. or if communication is to be started automatically at power–on without screen manipulation.5. When the value of NC parameter No. (4) Select USE with the “²” or “³” key. select a communication destination with NC parameter No.3 Setting on the NC Parameter Screen When the NC (such as the Series 160i or 180i) does not support the display of the PMC screen. When the 9–inch CRT is being used. Switch between the pages with the <Page Up> and <Page Down> keys. 255 NOT USE Terminates communication forcibly (EMG ST). (2) Set the CHANNEL and BAUD RATE parameters. (3) Move the cursor to the RS–232C item with the and keys. the PMC online monitor screen is set as indicated below. FUNCTIONS FOR DISPLAYING MEMORY AREAS AND DEBUGGING THE PROGRAM (MONIT) PMC PROGRAMMER (CRT/MDI) B–61863E/12 NOTE When the configuration disables the use of the ladder editing package. NC parameter No.8. the F–BUS item is not displayed. 2.

After this parameter has been modified. 24. the power must be turned off then back on for the new setting to become effective. A reception overrun has occurred. The unit is being stopped. The transmit/receive queue has overflowed. (Wait for the termination of communication over another communication path) The unit is active and in standby mode. A time–out has occurred and communication is aborted. Packets are out of sequence. The cable is disconnected. A parity error has occurred.5. a message is displayed to indicate the RS–232C or F–BUS communication status. (Incorrect procedure) Correct packets cannot be received through retransmission. The unit is active and being connected. FUNCTIONS FOR DISPLAYING MEMORY AREAS AND DEBUGGING PMC PROGRAMMER (CRT/MDI) THE PROGRAM (MONIT) NOTE With NC parameter No. the PMC online monitor screen setting is changed when the power is turned on. 8. 2. An invalid open parameter is specified. a value other than 0.4 Explanation of Communication Status On the online monitor screen. Explanation 575 . from which the unit cannot recover. Communication has been terminated successfully. The table below lists the displayed messages and their explanations. 1.B–61863E/12 8. The file cannot be opened because the corresponding option is not provided. A BCC (packet parity) error has occurred.
