ProDNC DNC Software Programs

ProDNC has been designed to be really easy for shopfloor use; easy to use and easy to see by non-computer literate operators. DNC file transfer via serial RS232 to any type of CNC is now easier and quicker than ever… 

ProDNC is available in three different formats – the first format provides "manual" DNC transfer where an operator sets up the CNC machine ready to send or receive and then walks to the computer and selects the file to DNC. The second method is similar to the first, but has full Client/Server control, so the user can use wireless Laptop or notebook devices – now including an Android DNC App – to transfer files, and the third method, whereby DNC transfer is initiated totally at the CNC control, no more walking back and forth between the CNC and the Computer, no more waiting about ready for other files to finish transferring! 

Standard DNC Version

  • Easily send and receive files between your CNCs and your computer.
  • Simultaneous DNC file transfer means no more waiting for other files to upload/download by other operators.
  • For non-simultaneous transfer – just use available com ports or switch boxes as you normally would.
  • Can be used with computer com ports and USB (with the appropriate cable convertor) and wireless/ethernet to RS232.
  • No Com Port – USB to RS232 cables – Keyspan work very well >> Click Here or Here

Client/Server DNC Version

The client/server edition has all the features of the Standard Edition, but the DNC transfers are controlled by "clients" – programs run on wireless connected Laptops, notepads, and even an Android App – remotely controlling all aspects of DNC transfer via the Server.

  • All DNC transfers, settings, cables, wireless routers and administration is in a central Server location
  • Up to 32 DNC Clients can connect to the Server and via wireless remote control, instruct the DNC transfers.
  • Clients are Windows based on laptops, or we have an Android DNC app that controls the server.
  • ** Please note this product is no longer available **

Remote DNC Version 

ProDNC remote has most of the features as above with these additional ones too…

  • Send and receive files between your CNCs and your computer direct off the CNC control.
  • To send a file to your CNC you create a small program that you edit with the required filename. Send out this file through your CNC RS232, then press receive and the file comes through a short while later. >> more
  • To receive a file back off your CNC insert a single line into your code and just dump out the program from your CNC. ProDNC will save this file away with the supplied filename >> more
  • You can also automatically name files the same as the CNC filename – use the autoname function >> more
  • Any files dumped by CNC operator that are incorrectly formatted are automatically datestamped and saved, you can never lose any of your files because of operator errors!
  • Supports Com1 to Com128
  • Connect up to 64 CNCs.
  • Supports long-filename requests if you have comments on your CNC, numeric filenames if no comments
  • Restart after a toolbreak at exactly the last block sent successfully
  • Queue files for sequential sending to CNC
  • Merge multiple files for sending to CNC
  • Repeat last file sent to CNC "n" times
  • Definable tool-not-found, safe-restart and unknown-command files – send back to CNC for positive feedback
  • New DNC Wizard quickly finds your CNC protocols. >> more
  • You can also "manually" send and receive any file, just like the standard ProDNC edition, at any time.
  • Automatically logs every DNC transfer.
  • Same price for 1 or 64 CNC machines – no nasty upgrade shocks! >> more
