    1.2 GENERAL WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS

    WARNING1 Before operating the machine, thoroughly check the

    entered data. Operating the machine with incorrectlyspecified data may result in the machine behavingunexpectedly, possibly causing damage to theworkpiece and/or machine itself, or injury to the user.

    2 Never attempt to machine a workpiece without firstchecking the programmed value, compensation value,current position, and external signal settings. Also,never attempt to machine a workpiece without first

    checking the operation of the machine. Before startinga production run, ensure that the machine is operatingcorrectly by performing a trial run using, for example,the single block, feedrate override, or machine lockfunction, or by operating the machine with neither a toolnor workpiece mounted. Failure to confirm the correctoperation of the machine may result in the machinebehaving unexpectedly, possibly causing damage tothe workpiece and/or machine itself, or injury to theuser.

    3 Ensure that the specified feedrate is appropriate for the

    intended operation. Generally, for each machine, thereis a maximum allowable feedrate. The appropriatefeedrate varies with the intended operation. Refer tothe manual provided with the machine to determine themaximum allowable feedrate. If a machine is run atother than the correct speed, it may behaveunexpectedly, possibly causing damage to theworkpiece and/or machine itself, or injury to the user.

    4 When using a tool compensation function, thoroughlycheck the direction and amount of compensation.Operating the machine with incorrectly specified datamay result in the machine behaving unexpectedly,possibly causing damage to the workpiece and/ormachine itself, or injury to the user.

    5 The parameters for the CNC and PMC are factory-set.Usually, there is no need to change them. When,however, there is no alternative other than to change aparameter, ensure that you fully Failure to set aparameter correctly may result in the machinebehaving unexpectedly, possibly causing damage tothe workpiece and/or machine itself, or injury to the

    user.

    CAUTION1 Immediately after switching on the power, do not touch

    any of the keys on the MDI panel until the positiondisplay or alarm screen appears on the CNC unit.Some of the keys on the MDI panel are dedicated tomaintenance or other special operations. Pressing anyof these keys may place the CNC unit in other than itsnormal state. Starting the machine in this state maycause it to behave unexpectedly.

    2 The operator's manual describes all the basic functionsof the CNC, including the optional functions. Theselected optional functions vary with the machine. Somefunctions described in this manual may not, therefore,

    be supported by your machine. Check the machinespecifications previously.

    3 Some machine operations and screen functions areimplemented by the machine tool builder. For anexplanation of their usage and related notes, refer to themanual provided by the machine tool builder.For example:- On some machines, executing a tool function causes

    the tool change unit to operate. When executing atool function on such a machine, stand well clear ofthe tool change unit. Otherwise, there is a danger of

    injury to the operator.- Many auxiliary functions trigger physical operations,

    such as rotation of the spindle. Before attempting touse an auxiliary function, therefore, ensure that youare fully aware of the operation to be triggered bythat function.

    NOTECommand programs, parameters, and variables arestored in nonvolatile memory in the CNC. Generally, the

    contents of memory are not lost by a power on/offoperation. However, the contents of memory may beerased by mistake, or important data in nonvolatilememory may have to be erased upon recovering from afailure.To enable the restoration of data as soon as possible ifsuch a situation arises, always make a backup of thedata in advance.

    1.3 WARNING AND CAUTIONS ON THE FANUC CIMPLICITYi

    CELL

    Warnings and cautions on the FANUC CIMPLICITY

    i CELL are

    provided below and in the text of this manual. Read this manual

    carefully before using the FANUC CIMPLICITY

    i CELL, and

    observe the warnings, cautions, and notes.

    WARNING1 When using an NC program on an actual NC

    machine, confirm that the operation of the machineand tool controlled by the NC program is safe,

    before operating the machine.If an incorrect NC program is used or an NCprogram is used in a wrong way, the machine andtool can perform an unexpected operation, thusdamaging the tool, machine, and workpiece, andexposing humans to a fatal accident.

    2 This software does not check whether an NCprogram transferred by this software operatesnormally on the NC machine. When using an NCprogram on an actual NC machine, observe Item 1above.

    3 Even when an NC program once used successfullyis reused, the contents of the NC program input tothe NC machine can change for a cause such asdeteriorated NC program storage media and achange in the communication environment fortransfer based on the communication function.When using an NC program on an actual NCmachine, observe Item 1 above.

    In this manual, a program used to specify an NCmachine operation is referred to as an NC program.In the manual of an NC machine, an alias such as amachining program, part program, or program maybe used for an NC program. If the meaning andpurpose of such an alias are the same as for an NCprogram used in this manual, be sure to observe thewarnings above.

    Warning and caution on DNC operation

    WARNING

    1 When performing DNC operation, check the NCprogram. If an incorrect NC program is used, themachine and tool can perform an unexpectedoperation, thus damaging the workpiece andmachine, and causing human injury.

    2 When performing DNC operation, do not startmachine immediately. By using functions such asthe single block, feedrate override, and machinelock functions, check that the machine and toolcontrolled by DNC operation operate safely.If operation is performed using incorrect data, the

    machine can perform an unexpected operation,thus damaging the workpiece and machine, andcausing human injury.

    CAUTIONDNC operation may temporarily stop, depending onthe capability of the personal computer, the numberof NCs connected, and the size of thecommunication buffer on the NC side. Moreover,DNC operation may temporarily stop when softwareirrelevant to NC program transfer such as softwarefor personal computer screen operation isexecuted. In these cases, reduce the number ofmachines on which DNC operation is performedsimultaneously.

    Exclusive file control

    NOTEBe careful not to perform multiple operations suchas download, upload, edit, copy, move, and deleteoperations simultaneously for the same NC

    program.

    HMI, which has found

    applications in SCADA (monitoring control and data collection)

    software. The user can utilize a wide variety of functions available with

    this tool. Moreover, the tool can be modified to meet the operation of

    the user, and user-specific screens and functions can be added.

    In addition, by using the enhanced network function of CIMPLICITY

    HMI, a distributed system where multiple personal computers areinstalled at necessary locations can be built easily. Multiple

    CIMPLICITY viewer personal computers can reference a personal

    computer (server) that is performing central management with the i

    CELL. With the Web view function, operating status monitored with

    the i CELL can be monitored from a remote personal computer via the

    Internet by using a browser such as Internet Explorer. (The Web view is

    an option of CIMPLICITY.)

    An i-mode cellular phone can externally monitor some of operating

    statuses being monitored with the i CELL. A specified event such as the

    completion of machining and the occurrence of an error can be posted

    by mail to another personal computer or cellular phone. For the former

    monitoring, connection with the Internet must be maintained at all

    times.

    The i CELL supports communication using FOCAS2/Ethernet, DNC2,

    Reader/Puncher, and Data Server, so it is available for all NC models

    including the newest NC and old models. However, the usable functiondepends on the communication function.

    The i CELL connected to an NC using the Reader/Puncher interface can

    be used as a replacement of a FANUC NC program input/output device.

    By introducing the i CELL, the utilization of production equipment can

    be improved, and quick recovery can be performed if a failure occurs.

    FANUC hopes that the i CELL will be fully utilized as a package for

    building a system and providing a base for operation.

    under development:Alarm history screen, operator message historyscreen, operation history screen, alarm/operatormessage/operation history acquisition based on theautomatic history acquisition function, andFROM/SRAM backup and restoration screen.

    *4 Options related to FOCAS2/Ethernet are required.*5 When an NC program is to be input to and output

    from the NC memory, an option related toFOCAS2/Ethernet is required. When an NC programis to be input to and output from a Data Server, theData Server needs to be set as an FTP server.

    *6 Set an FTP server on the PC side, and set thesetting information (port number, IP address, username, password, login directory) in the parametersof the Data Server.

    *7 When the eight-digit O number option is used, NC

    program I/O operation cannot be performed.*8 Connection is impossible if the Series 15i and Series

    30i /31i /32i-A are in use.

    CNC connection optionUp to five NCs can be connected using FOCAS2/Ethernet (including

    the FOCAS2/Ethernet function of the Data Server) by setting the

    password supplied with i CELL to the PC. When you want to connect

    six or more NCs or connect an NC using DNC2 or Reader/Puncher,

    purchase a desired CNC connection option listed below and set the

    password to the PC. You can expand the number of connected NCs up

    to 20.

    However, when the FOCAS2/Ethernet function of the Data Server is

    not used but only the function for input to and output from the hard disk

    of the Data Server is used from the NC program management screen,

    the NC with the Data Server is not counted in the number of NCs that

    require the options above. When a connection is made to a PC that has

    an FTP server, and files are transferred using the NC programmanagement screen, the PC is not counted in the number of PCs that

    require the options above.

    In other words, when only the FTP client function of the NC program

    management screen is used, the connection destination, namely, a Data

    Server or PC, is not counted in the number of units that require the

    options above. So, when I/O operation to and from the NC memory is

    to be performed using the FOCAS2/Ethernet function of a Data Server,

    the NC that has the Data Server is counted in the number of NCs that

    require the options above.
