USB Mass Storage
Our Fadal USB Mass Stroage Bridge is a Computer Host that interfaces a standard USB Stick (up to 2tb) through the RS232 port to your Fadal Leagcy Control. The user can load their CNC Programs into the control memory from the USB Stick using the standard TA Command or drip feed the program to the control using the Fadal DNC or DNCX Commands. The Mass Storage Bridge uses the latest CPU design and supports many advanced functions including multiple directory commands, advanced help menu, time and date stamp, mid tape start and much more. Each kit includes everything you need to install it in your Fadal including a water proof panel mount USB connector with cover, 15 ft. USB cable and 16gb. USB Stick. It also includes two RJ45 Cables and Connectors to interface to the VMC Control through your 1030 card in slot 8 and also to your existing Computer's RS232 port. The unit is powered by 5v DC and is over voltage protected in the event the unit is plugged in backwards or there is a power problem in the control. Since we came out with the first version we have added many features, fixed bugs and improved error reporting. Soon we will release a Universal Version for other Machine Manufacturers.
