Configuring your first CNC Machine

  1. Run PDADNC™

  3. Enter the name of your machine and click [SAVE]
  4. 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)
  5. 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.

  1. Select the machine tool name you entered from the [Machine Control] list
  2. 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


  1. If PDADNC™ does not flash, insert a null modem adaptor and resend the file
  2. If PDADNC™ flashes, but the file is garbled, adjust the communication parameters
