HEIDENHAIN TNCremoNT

1TNCremoNT—The Software
1.1 TNCremoNT Software Package
TNCremoNT is a software package for data transmission between PCs and HEIDENHAIN controls. The data is transmitted through the serial interface or the Ethernet interface. The TNCremoNT software package includes: n TNCremoNT: • Convenient data transfer functions that are operated from the PC. • Pallet management for creating, editing and transmitting pallet tables. n TNCserver: • Convenient data transfer functions operated from the TNC. • Transmission functions for all HEIDENHAIN controls. n TNCbackup: • Convenient functions for creating and restoring a backup of the TNC. n TNCcmd: • Command line tool for all transfer functions

1.2 Hardware Prerequisites
PC Requirements TNCremoNT can be run on all common personal computers. The operating system must be Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000. Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT and Windows 2000 are registered trademarks of the Microsoft Corporation. For successful communication over the serial interface at high data transfer rates the interface should be equipped with 16C550-compatible hardware. Requirements for the control The selection of features you can use in TNCremoNT depends on your control. A table with an overview of features provides more detailed information, see page 48.

1.3 License Agreement
Detailed usage and license requirements are in the file Eula.rtf located in the program directory. By installing TNCremoNT, you agree to the license requirements.
