Configuring CNC Data Points

About Configuring CNC Data PointsThe CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC QuikStart project, discussed in Chapter 2, containsmore than 1500 pre-configured CIMPLICITY HMI points. You can use this projectas a starting point for your CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC project configuration. Tocopy the CNC QuikStart project:

1. Open the CNC QuikStart project CNC_QuikStart CIMPLICITYWorkbench.

2. Select Copy to Project from the File menu.

3. Enter your project name and directory in the Copy Project to NewProject dialog box, then select Create… .

You can use any combination of pre-configured and configured CIMPLICITY HMIfor CNC points for each of the following types of CNC data:

• Axis Position Data (Relative, Absolute, Machine, and Distance-to-Goaxis positions)

• PMC "BMI Bits" (G, F, Y, X, A, R, T, K, C, and D)

• Pitch Error Compensation Data

• Custom Macro Variable Data

• Active Program Number / Active Program Sequence Number

• Skip Data

• Actual Axis Feedrate / Actual Spindle Speed

• Tool Offset Data

• Current Tool Number

• Work Zero Offset Data

• Parameter Data

4-2 CIMPLICITY HMI CNC Operation Manual GFK-1341

Using CIMPLICITY HMI Floating Point DataAll floating point data is actually stored on the CNC in two (2) separate memorylocations:

• A long integer that specifies the value

• A short integer that specifies the number of decimal places (forexample, the precision).

Within CIMPLICITY HMI software, these two integers are converted into a single 8-byte, double precision, floating point number, and stored in a CIMPLICITY HMIpoint of type REAL.

It is important to note that the nature of floating point data is such that imprecision islikely in the least significant digits.

Thus, when dealing with CIMPLICITY HMI points of type REAL, it is notappropriate to use these points in conditions involving EQUALS or NOT EQUALS.For example, it would not be appropriate to test if CIMPLICITY HMI real point "A"equals "5", since the exact representation stored in A might be"5.000000000000001". Instead, use the "Less than or equal to" or "Greater than orequal to" operators, as appropriate.

General Procedure for Adding CIMPLICITY HMI PointsThe CIMPLICITY HMI Base System User’s Manual (GFK-1180) describes all of thevarious attributes that can be specified when configuring a CIMPLICITY HMI point.This section describes the absolute minimum information that must be specified toconfigure a point:

Axis Position DataYou can configure CIMPLICITY HMI points to read Relative, Absolute, Distance-to-Go, or Machine Axis positions. You may not write axis points.

When specifying addresses for axis positions, the number following the two-letterprefix specifies the particular axis. For example, DA6 specifies Distance-to-Go axisnumber 6.

Support is provided for obtaining data from up to 8 axes for Series 160/180/210 andup to 15 axes for Series 150. If the current number of controlled axes on your CNCis less than 8, then you will only be able to obtain data for the number of axes youhave configured. For example, if your CNC is currently configured for 3 controlledaxes, then you may define points for Machine Axis Positions MA1 - MA8. However,only CIMPLICITY HMI points MA1, MA2, and MA3 will have values.

When configuring these points, you must specify the following attributes:

Relative Axis PositionsPoint Class: ANALOG

PMC BMI BitsYou can configure CIMPLICITY HMI points to read and write PMC data, frequentlyreferred to as "BMI Bits". This includes G, F, X, Y, R, A, T, K, C, and D BMI Bits.

You may configure points which read and write individual bits of data usingCIMPLICITY HMI digital points, or you may access PMC data locations asindividual bytes, words (2 bytes), or longwords (4 bytes) of data at a time usingCIMPLICITY analog points.

When configuring digital points to access bits of data, CIMPLICITY HMI softwareaccesses the memory location as a byte. In order to specify the particular bit, youmust set the Address Offset field to a value between 0 and 7, where 0 specifies theleast significant bit, and 7 specifies the most significant bit.

When configuring analog points to access 1, 2, or 4 bytes of data at a time, youshould not set the Address Offset field.

GFK-1341 Configuring CNC Data Points 4-19

Tool Offset DataYou can configure CIMPLICITY HMI points to read and write data in the tool offsettable. The types of data that you may access depends on the type of CNC ("M", "T"or Power Mate) and the type of tool offset memory ("A", "B", or "C") that you havepurchased for your CNC. Note that the Power Mate control only supports memorytype "A".

The various types of data are discussed below.

Regardless of the type of memory, the total number of tool offsets that you can accessfor each memory type depends upon the number of tool offsets that you havepurchased for your CNC:

• For Series 160/180 T, you may have 16, 32, 64, or 99 tool offsets.

• For Series 210 M, you may have 32, 64, or 99 tool offsets.

• For Series 210 T, you may have 16, 32, or 64 tool offsets.

• For Series 160 M, you may have 32, 64, 99, 400, 499, or 999 tooloffsets.

• For Series 150 M, you may have 32, 99, 200, 499, or 999 tool offsets.

• For Series 150 T, you may have 32, 64, or 160 tool offsets.

• For Power Mate, you will have 99 tool offsets.

Note: For a linear axis, the number of significant digits you can enter beforeand after the decimal point is a function of the current input unit (for example,millimeters vs. inches).

For inches, you may enter up to 3 digits before the decimal point and 4 digits afterthe decimal point. For example, 999.9999 would be a valid value, but 9999.9999would not.

For millimeters, you may enter up to 4 digits before the decimal point and 3 digitsafter the decimal point.

Point Class: ANALOG

Type: DINT

Access: READ

Valid Addresses: CTN

Address Offset: None

Page 93: Gfk1341D - CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC Operation Manual

GFK-1341 Configuring CNC Data Points 4-25

Work Zero Offset DataYou can configure CIMPLICITY HMI points to read and write entries in the WorkZero Offset table.

The total number of work zero offsets you may access depends upon the number youhave purchased for your CNC. You may have purchased the following options:

• Series 160/180 M 0 - 6, 7 - 55, 56 - 306 work zero offset

• Series 160/180 T 0 - 6 work zero offset

• Series 210 M 0 - 6 work zero offset

• Series 150 0 - 6, 7 - 54 work zero offset

Note: For a linear axis, the number of significant digits you can enter beforeand after the decimal point is a function of the current input unit (for example,millimeters vs. inches).

For inches, you may enter up to 4 digits before the decimal point and 4 digits afterthe decimal point. For example, 9999.9999 would be a valid value, but 99999.9999would not.

For millimeters, you may enter up to 5 digits before the decimal point and 3 digitsafter the decimal point.

When configuring an array point to access work zero offset data, keep in mind thatdata is addressed one axis at a time. For example, if you configure an array pointwith 10 elements, and the address you specify for the point is WZO1A1, then the firstelement of the array will be for Offset 1, Axis 1. The second element of the arraywill be for Offset 2, Axis 1, not Offset 1, Axis 2.

The Power Mate and Power Mate i controls do not support the Work Zero Offsettable.

To configure a CIMPLICITY HMI point to access work zero offset data, you mustspecify the following information:

Work Zero OffsetsPoint Class: ANALOG

Type: REAL

Access: READ or READ/WRITE

Valid Addresses: WZOxAy, where x is a valid tool offset number for your CNC,and y is a valid axis number.

Address Offset: N/A

4-26 CIMPLICITY HMI CNC Operation Manual GFK-1341

Parameter DataYou can configure CIMPLICITY HMI points to read and write parameters in theparameter table. Before configuring a CIMPLICITY HMI point, you must refer tothe Parameter Manual for your control type (Series 15, Series 16 or Power Mate) todetermine the following three (3) pieces of information:

• Is the CNC parameter a bit, byte, word, or longword (2-word)parameter?

• Does the CNC parameter contain signed or unsigned data?

• Does the CNC parameter have data for every axis (an "axis"parameter), or is there just a single value?

When configuring CIMPLICITY HMI points as parameters, you need to be aware ofthe following restrictions:

• You may not configure CIMPLICITY HMI points as array points forparameters.

• The default behavior of the CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC product is tocheck the Parameter Write Enable bit (the "PWE" bit) before writingany parameter data. Thus, if the Parameter Write Enable bit is not set,any setpoints for parameters will fail. You can override the defaultbehavior by forcing CIMPLICITY HMI software to ignore theParameter Write Enabler bit. See Appendix A for details.

• In general, most CNC parameters contain "SIGNED" data, so youshould use the equivalent signed CIMPLICITY HMI point type (SINT,INT, or DINT).

After you have determined this information, you may configure CIMPLICITY HMIpoints using the following information:

Bit Parameters (no axis)Point Class: DIGITAL

Type: BOOL

Access: READ or READ/WRITE

Valid Addresses: PAx, where x is a valid parameter number for a bitparameter

Address Offset: 0-7, depending upon which bit you want to access

The temporary file(s) created in the TMP or TEMP directory are deletedwhen you exit the application. If you need to make changes to a program on CNC,you can use one of the following methods:

• Open the part program for editing and then download the savedtemporary file to the CNC.

• Upload the part program to your PC. Open the uploaded program onyour PC for editing and then download the saved program to the CNC.

Renaming Part ProgramsTo rename a part program in any one of the list boxes, you can bring up a RenameFile dialog box by:

• Selecting Rename from the File menu

• Selecting the Rename File toolbar button

• Typing Ctrl+R

The Rename File dialog box opens.

The current file name is displayed in the read-only Current Name field. The firstcharacter in the current file name is initially displayed in the New Name field.

If you rename a program on the CNC, the new name must have an "Oxxxx" format,where O is a character and xxxx is a number up to four digits. The number xxxx istaken as the new program number and used to modify the "O" code (program number)on the second line in the file.

If you enter a new name that overrides an existing program on the CNC, you areasked to confirm the new file name.

If you rename a program on your CNC, the application uploads the selected programto a temporary file in the TEMP or TMP directory on your PC, renames thetemporary file, and then downloads this temporary file to your CNC. The temporaryfiles created in the TMP or TEMP directory are deleted when you exit theapplication.

Selecting and Rewinding Part ProgramsTo select and rewind a part program on your CNC, you need to do the following:

• Select a program in the Program on CNC list box.

or

• Select a program in the Selected Program list box if the mode is eitherUpload or Delete from CNC.

• Click Select and Rewind or type Ctrl+S to select and rewind theprogram.

The program number of the selected program is displayed in the CRT/MDI screensand the program becomes active on the CNC.

TroubleshootingHere are some guidelines for handling the error messages in the CNC Part ProgramApplication window.

Unexpected Files on PCIf the unexpected files have names with the format of "CNCOxxxx", they aretemporary files created during the opening or renaming of part programs on yourCNC. This is because the TMP or TEMP environment variable is not defined onyour computer. Refer to the section Environment Variables on PC to see how todefine these environment variables on your computer.

Select and Rewind ErrorIf the following message is displayed:

[Part Program]: Error - Program was not selected.

the error might be caused by the CNC being in the wrong mode. If you have a Series15 CNC, it is recommended that the CNC be in EDIT mode. If you have a Series16/18/21 CNC, the mode should be either MEM or EDIT mode.

Appendix A - OverridingParameter Write Enable

Overriding the Parameter Write Enable BitThe default behavior of the CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC product is to check theParameter Write Enable bit (the "PWE" bit) before allowing CIMPLICITY HMIsoftware to write any CIMPLICITY HMI points that are configured to access theCNC parameter table. You may override the default behavior and allowCIMPLICITY HMI software to always write to the parameter table by performingthe following steps:

1. Stop your CIMPLICITY HMI project if it is currently executing.

2. In your project’s CIMPLICITY Workbench, from the Tools menu,select the Command Prompt… option.

3. An MS-DOS window opens. In this window, type the followingcommands:

cd masteridtpop glb_parms

This creates a file called glb_parms.idt in your project’s masterdirectory.

4. Use a text editor such as Notepad to access the contents of this file.This file consists of a series of records, 1 per line.

5. Using the text editor, add the following line to the end of this file:

DC_CHECK_PWE|1|N

6. If you have dual path controllers, you will need to add an additional lineto the end of this file:

DC_CHECK_PWE2|1|N

7. Save the file.

8. Exit from the text editor.

9. Enter the following command in the MS-DOS window:

SCPOP GLB_PARMS

10. Exit from the MS-DOS window.

11. Restart your CIMPLICITY HMI project.

12. Update your project configuration files when prompted.

Appendix B - OLE ObjectDescriptions

User Applications Using OLE ObjectsOne of the powerful features of the Basic Operation Package is the ability to strippowerful OLE control objects from the package and insert them into user-developedOLE container applications such as CimEdit/CimView screens.

BOP BOP Control

User Applications BOP Control

The user container application can communicate to the OLE objects by using thecontrol methods and control events. The user container can manipulate the controlby calling the control methods. The control can communicate to the container byfiring its events.

Page 134: Gfk1341D - CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC Operation Manual

B-2 CIMPLICITY HMI CNC Operation Manual GFK-1341

This screen shows the insertion of four OLE controls into a user dialog-basedcontainer application. These objects can be sized and colored. Manipulation of theobjects themselves can be done with pushbuttons that call the control methods.

Page 135: Gfk1341D - CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC Operation Manual

GFK-1341 Appendix B - OLE Object Descriptions B-3

OLE Control Methods and PropertiesThe CNC screen in the Basic Operation Package (BOP) 1 is an OLE object, whichsupports the OLE visual editing and prepares the following OLE IDispatchautomation interfaces.

The CNC screen is normally made as an in-process type OLE server, that is ActiveX® control (OLE control), and you can also use it on Visual Basic®, MicrosoftAccess, etc. You can make the CNC screen as an out-of-process OLE server likeMicrosoft Excel. However, in this case, the BOP software slows down, you cannotuse the soft keys through your keyboard, and you must use the mouse.

The screen object has the following IDispatch interfaces to support the application.

DoFunction (method)

Syntax DoFunction ( Index )

Parameters This method uses the following parameter:

C-4 CIMPLICITY HMI CNC Operation Manual GFK-1341

CNC IPL ModeThe IPL mode provides access to CNC setup data, CNC file clearing, Optionconfiguration, and server maintenance features. For more information on using thesefeatures, see the CNC maintenance manual

CNC IPL MenuAfter you close the above NCBOOT32 displays, the IPL Service menu will appear.This menu allows maintenance personnel to clear and set up the CNC softwaremenus. It also allows access to the IPL (Initial Program Loading) mode.

Page 145: Gfk1341D - CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC Operation Manual

GFK-1341 Appendix C - Startup Boot and IPL Modes C-5

Multi-HSSB Card Boot ExampleIf the selected open system consists of multiple CNC systems connected to a singlePC via multiple HSSB cards, each CNC can have a boot function window. Thisenables you to view multiple systems simultaneously.

Setting the HSSB Rotary Switch to "1"This is the normal setting. The start-up BOOT function displays are not shown, andthe operator has no access to Boot or IPL mode.

CNCIn this mode the CNC will not finish the boot process until NCBOOT32 running onthe host PC has connected with the control.

Power MateIn this mode the Power Mate will finish the boot process independent of the hostPC’s condition.

Setting the HSSB Rotary Switch to "2"The CNC will boot without the Open CNC PC connection. This selection can beused where a CRT/MDI is the primary operator interface and the PC is not alwayspowered up.

This switch setting in not supported on the Power Mate.

Appendix D - Troubleshooting

TroubleshootingIf you still have problems after installing CIMPLICITY HMI for CNC software andperforming all the verification procedures in Chapter 1, try these troubleshootingsuggestions:

1. Check to see if any other PC-vendor printed circuit board is using theHSSB assigned I/O address.

2. Check the rotary switch settings on the CNC-based HSSB printedcircuit board. The switch should be set to 1 to start up in normal mode.(If you change the setting, remember to cycle CNC power.)

3. Reboot the PC and look at Windows 95 Boot Log or Windows NTSystem Log for errors that HSSB Driver is installed.

4. Verify that the target CNC has the correct software and the option isenabled.

5. Verify that the green LED located on the HSSB PC printed circuitboard is ON after the CNC/ PC boot. This LED is visible from the rearof the PC next to the fiber optic connection.

6. Reboot the PC and CNC after changing any setup configuration data.
