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

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
