Configuring your first CNC Machine

  • Run PDADNC™

  • Click [SETUP] and then [ADD]

  • Enter the name of your machine and click [SAVE]

  • Enter configuration information for the machine (COM port, baud rate, data bits, stop bits, parity, etc.)

If you are unsure of the machine settings, start with the default value(s)

  • Click [SAVE] and then [EXIT]

Receiving from your first CNC Machine

Important: It is recommended to successfully receive a file from the CNC machine tool before attempting to send a file to the CNC machine. Receiving a file will validate that the CNC machine's COM port and the Pocket PC's COM port are both operational and that the cable is, for the most part, configured correctly.

  • Select the machine tool name you entered from the [Machine Control] list

  • Click [RECEIVE] and then punch/output the file from the machine tool control.

PDADNC™ will continue to wait until activity is seen on the COM port. When data is seen, PDADNC™ will begin to flash, indicating that data is being received


  • If PDADNC™ does not flash, insert a null modem adaptor and resend the file

  • If PDADNC™ flashes, but the file is garbled, adjust the communication parameters

Still having problems? Give us a call at (800) 838-3479. We are here and happy to help!

Sending to your first CNC Machine

  • Once you have successfully received a file with PDADNC™, prepare the CNC machine tool control to receive a file

  • Click [SEND] ‐ the contents of the PDADNC™ Data Link will be transferred to the CNC machine
