    Hello,
    How have you been transfering programs to the 04pc until now?
    Did your "Gsender" software come with instructions? Because generally DNC parameter settings are software specific!
    I use "Machine Talk" I am verey happy with how it works! I have used "HandShake" before, the parameter setting are differant than Machine Talk!
    I would be happy to give you the instructions for both of them if you want?

    Thank u for ur reply.Of course i want everything useful for me and i'll appreciate it. We've just bought Gsender software and they gave us the communication setting as follow. But i couldn't use it bcoz i didn't know how to receive program from NC control. I mean which mode i have to choose (Edit,Jog,Memory,Tape etc.) and which key i have to press, i simply admit it . And which parameter i need to change at NC control? Some more u just ask me "Handshake" and "Machine Talk" also i've never heard of it. Please help me where i can find and learn about "HandShake" and "Machine Talk", Thank u again.

    Hello,
    Do you have an "Operator's Manual"? If not you should be able to get on from Amada.
    The following section will show you how to send an NC program from your host computer to your control. To send an NC program to the control, you need to set your control ready to receive data and then to start the transmission from the host computer.

    Setting the Amadan Fanuc O4P-C Control Ready to Receive
    To set the control ready to receive data, follow these steps:

    1. Make sure the "EDIT PROTECT" key lock is turned to its "OFF" position.
    2. Turn on control. When it is ready, depress the “EDIT” key on the control console to select the edit mode.
    3. Depress and hold down the "FUNC" key then press the “PRGRM” key.
    4. Press the “READ” soft key below the screen. The “READ” message should start flashing, indicating that the 04PC control is ready to receive.

    Let me know if this helps or if you get any alarms

    Yes sir, I've got an "Operator's Manual". I followed yr instruction but a little bit different in procedure. What I've done were as follow,

    1. Turned "Edit Protect" key to "OFF" position.
    2. Turned on control. Pressed the "EDIT" key on the console to select the edit mode when it was ready.
    3. Pressed "PRGRM" key only (bcoz no "FANUC" key on my machine).
    4. Pressed the "READ" soft key below the screen.
    Then the "READ" message not flashing but an alarm coming instead "No. 086 HAND SHAKE ERROR" , so what's next pls?

    Hello,

    Please go to the link attached and down load this manual. Go to page 28, there you will find step by step to change parameters for communication for O4P-C control. Be aware that you will need to know the correct parameter numbers for you specific sending software "Gsender"to make this work! I would hope that Gsender has "support" and that they could give you those correct paramerter numbers! Good luck! Let me know if this helps.

    Hello again,

    The Gsender software that you have is it a "demo" or did you buy it? Because if you purchased it from 'Sketchline Technologies" they supply support! I dont think you can make the demo version work?

I've already asked the tool supplier (KETEC Precision Tool ) and they said test again and again and go down the punch bottom position and once I will get the right btm position but can't get. Sometimes it was ok but sometimes not,I meant became hole. Could you suggest me something pls?

    Dear Sir

    I've downloaded the Manual and followed the procedure from page 28 but I didn't have the right parameters for GSender and I couldn't have done DNC communication successfully. So I asked GSender people and trying to get the right parameters. I will let you know when I've done this successfully but at least now I know how to change parameters in NC control because of your help, thank you.
