I do not know much about the system you mention, however regarding communication to another device, you have the option on your Thermwood Control to monitor and activate/deactivate inputs and outputs within a part program. The following codes will allow such operation at given time in which the code is executed:
M60L# ( Monitor Input # for ON status )
M60L-# ( Monitor Input # for OFF status )
M61L# ( Activate Output # )
M62L# ( Deactivate Output # )
You will have to refer to your machine schematics to see available inputs/outputs or contact our service dept. (email@example.com
) with your machine number. You can also add additional hardware to your control to support additional inputs/outputs.
Another option you would have if your system requires a more PC based integration, would be the ability to use AFL to communicate. An example: Starting an executable file (.exe) to perform a process, then return to part program and continue further CNC operations.
