HEIDENHAIN components normally have a black ID label (often on the back). Here you'll find the ID number and serial number, as well as the model designation. On connecting cables, the ID number is on the jacket, near the connector.
The following procedures have been written to reflect the PC hardware and software available in the ETSU Machine Tool Lab (Room 103 Wilson-Wallis Hall). As one or more of the computers in the lab will be undergoing serious upgrades, these directions may be out of date. Ask your instructor for specific instructions on the current data transfer procedures.Ensure the PC-Heidenhain Serial Communications Cable is connected to the back of the Heidenhain Controller and to either the appropriate COMM port on the PC or to the serial stitchbox.If applicable, set the lab's serial A-B-D-E switch box to the Heidenhain/Bridgeport position (E).If applicable, set the serial A-B switch box to the proper PC. For PCs running DOS/Windows 3.x
At the PC's DOS prompt, type in HEID-24 and press the [ENTER] key to run a batch file that sets up the correct communications parameters (MODE COMx 2400 E 7 2).
Install the disk containing your program
Use Norton Commander to locate and highlight your program's file name. If the Norton Commander DOS shell is not active, type in NC and press the [ENTER] key.
Display your floppy disk's files in the left panel by pressing the [ALT] key and at the same time the F1 key. Then type in A (for 5-1/4" disk) or B (for 3-1/2" disk).
Press the TAB key to move back and forth between the left and right panels.
Use the cursor arrows to highlight your program's filename.
If you do not know the program identifier number (the number at the top of the file immediately after the '%' character, view the file by pressing the F3 function key (press [ESC] key to exit).
At the Heidenhain controller
Press the EDIT key.
Press the EXTernal communications key.
Use the cursor keys to highlight the "READ-IN SELECTED PROGRAM" prompt and press .
Key in the number to be assigned to the program by the controller—its identifier—and press . The number MUST be exactly the same as the program identifier number contained in the first (and last) statement in your program. The number must not already be in use. If necessary, either (a) go back to the computer and edit the statement, changing the program number to one not already in use or (b) delete the conflicting program from the Heidenhain's memory.
Back at the PC, type in from the DOS prompt:
COPY COM2: and press the [ENTER] key.
SICK Hiperface DSL encoders are now a popular feedback type used on new motor models from Allen Bradley VP, Kollmorgen AKM, Beckhoff AM8, Parker SME, and others. The new TI-5106 hardware adapter module is designed to support all Hiperface DSL encoders including the common EKS/EKM36 and EFS/EFM50 models with 18, 21, and 23-bit count resolutions. This module, along with the proper test cable and software selection for your motor type, supports the 2-wire Hiperface DSL protocol including the ability to perform a Count Test, display electrical angles, set alignment electronically, receive error codes, read and write memory data from supported manufacturers, and run-test motors using the TI-3000JX. Hiperface DSL is considered a premier feature on the JX system.

The new PWT 100 incorporates a 4.3-in. touchscreen used for display and operation, along with supporting multiple serial interfaces such as EnDat 2.2, Fanuc Serial Interface, Mitsubishi High Speed Interface, and Panasonic Serial Interface upon release. Further feedback options, along with incremental signals, will become available in the future through software expansions and firmware updates.
TNCremo is a free PC software package for communication between PCs and HEIDENHAIN controls or programming stations. Data transfer is carried out over the network or the serial interface. TNCremo runs on PCs with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x and Windows 10 operating systems.
Once this is installed , you can connect a null modem cable (RS-232 cable with a 9-pin connector on one end and a 25-pin connector on the other) between your Haas machine and the USB-to-serial-port adapter.
Typically, either a piece of hardware (in the case of stringing many physical cables) or the right software makes it look to the DNC server PC like it has a whole bunch of serial ports ready to pipeline g-code back to the CNC machine on the other end.
There are lots of other features in DNC software, and the software ranges in complexity from simple free programs aimed at getting g-code over an RS-232 cable and onto a machine to complex multi-machine DNC server software.
It used to be that DNC was exclusively done via serial cables, but newer machines have added the ability to perform DNC operations over simple Internet connections. They also retain the ability for serial, but I was surprised at just how many are going the network path.

The functions contained in the SuperCom Heidenhain Library, are all in-house development (as common to the SuperCom software) and do not use any tools or libraries from third-party providers but directly access the TNC themselves.The SuperCom Heidenhain Library supports data communication to different Heidenhain TNC through serial lines or TCP/IP (Ethernet connection).
Every EZSync cable is built to last for years with high-quality industrial grade materials. EZsync014 is a USB to RS-232 interface adapter cable. No external power supply needed. Compatible with USB and RS-232 standards. EZsync014 is capable of performing the conversion from single-ended USB signal into UART signal of RS-232. DB25 male connector is used for connection from RS-232 interface. The unique I/O circuit of the internal zero delay auto transceiver contained in the converter controls the data stream direction automatically. The cable is plug-and-play for windows7, 8 and 10. This cable will work for computer USB to a CNC using XON/XOFF software handshaking. Only has TXD, RXD and GND signals, RTS and CTS signals are jumped out. Most of the CNC controls are software based handshaking, this cable will work. Please contact the seller if you are not sure this cable works or not for your devices.

Is anyone using the Heidenhain TNCremoNT software from Heidenhain's website for transferring files? I have a TNC-2500B controller and using Version 2.3.255 of the software and am not able to establish a connection between my 25 pin Bridgeport VMC 760/20 connection and 9 pin serial computer connection. I have wired a direct connect cable between the CNC and computer as shown in Heidenhains service manual (.pdf file also from their website). I sometimes get an "Unable to establish connection error" or the program just locks up. I have tried various changes in the machine parameter codes with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The EnDat 2.2 position encoder is connected to the EnDat 2.2 master interface through a single, eight-wire shielded cable. Two wires are for the encoder power supply and two wires are for battery-buffering or parallel power-supply wires. The serial RS-485-based communication only requires four signal wires: two for the bidirectional differential data signals DATA+ and DATA- in half-duplex mode, and two for the differential clock signal CLOCK+ and CLOCK-.
A Zaber gantry kit comes with everything you need to build a customized XY gantry system or XYZ gantry system. These gantry systems feature coordinated multi-axis motion, plug-and-play operation, easy integration with end-effector options, and built-in IO and E-Stop capabilities. An intuitive ASCII interface allows the user to easily communicate with the gantry systems using our free software, either Zaber Motion Library with APIs for several popular languages or Zaber Console. Third party terminal programs that can communicate over a serial port can also be used.
