    Default Hitachi Seiki VK 45 / Seicos

    Problem:

    I can't load large programs due to extremely small amount of memory. Other than breaking a large program up into pieces and loading it that way, what can I do to either increase the memory or feed the program from a laptop using DNC in increments while the machine runs? Any Ideas?

    Seicos II or III control?

    I might be able to dig up a procedure for expanding the memory on the III without hardware. I have never done it but remember seeing it.

    Your other option is to drip feed the machine via RS232 port.

    Its a MK II controller. How can I "Drip Feed" the program. The laptop is connected to the RS232 Port and I am using SurfCam DNC. If you know the procedure for this, that would be great.


    Thanks,
    Jason

    Jason,
    I don’t have anything for the II control for expanding memory. However I have heard good things about a company called Memex. Link to their website is below. They do memory upgrades for very reasonable prices if that is the way you choose to go.

    As for the drip feeding I have never done it on this control so I do not have firsthand knowledge of the proper settings. I don’t have any manuals for the control so you will have to look through the parameter book to see what the settings are. You should have no problems getting a procedure or settings from Surfcam on how to set this up. Just give them a call.
