The example used here is the control on a DMG MORI NTX 1000 (2018).
The Ethernet drop should be routed to the CD38A port located on the NCU in main electrical cabinet.
Once the drop is routed you will need to set the IP in the Focas settings of the controller.
On the control interface select: Main menu > CNC > System > NC system to access the Focas settings.
Main menu > CNC
Navigation from here is similar to other Focas machines.
Scroll using the right arrow softkey until you see ETHPRM, EMBED PORT, or ETHER-BOARD. Depending on the model of your machine’s control, you may see a variety of softkey options to enter networking information.
On most controls you may see an option for "FOCAS 2" and "COMMON" - this is where you enter the IP address, Subnet, Gateway, and TCP Port of the embedded port. If you do not see these softkeys, press "Page Down" to find these data fields.
The IP address entered here must be within the same range as the outermost NIC port of the edge device to which the machine reports FOCAS data.
Make sure you are entering the IP settings for the correct port! The Common Setting indicates which port is used to communicate FOCAS data. The most common setting is “EMBEDDED“, however ”BOARD“ can also be used:
IMPORTANT: The IP address set on your machine must be within the same range as the edge device (port 2) which collects data from the machine.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the "AVAILABLE DEVICE" is set to the embedded port (not PCMCIA). This can be switched by pressing the "OPRT" softkey.
