How it Works

PDADNC™ makes it easy to name files for sending or receiving.

A typical session involves either sending an existing CNC program to a selected machine control or receiving a CNC program from a machine control.

PDADNC makes it easy to name files for sending or receiving

Sending CNC programs to a machine tool is simple:

  • Select the Machine Control to communicate with from the drop down list box

  • Tap [Select] to browse your folders and then tap the file name you want.

  • Prepare the machine tool to receive the file and tap [SEND]

  • PDADNC™ will send the file using the configured communication settings

Receiving a CNC program from a machine tool is just as simple:

  • Select the Machine Control to communicate with from the drop down list box

  • Tap [REC.] to prepare PDADNC™ - send the file from the machine control

  • PDADNC™ will receive the CNC file and place it in the Data Link Window

Getting Started

PDADNC™ makes getting started easy.

You can download the application and run it in Trial Mode for as long as you like. In Trial Mode you can send small files and receive files from any control although they are not stored to the Pocket PC unless the application is registered. It is easy to see and verify the file as it is received, since the file is displayed in the Data Link indicator.

Installing PDADNC™

  • 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
