Auto Receive dialog

When the DNC server is receiving a NC program from the CNC, auto receive is used to determine the name of the file, and the directory where the file should be saved.

Example: If the DNC is configured to look for a program name at the beginning of the file, in the format Oxxxx, where xxxx is the program name, and it receives the following NC program:

Then it would extract the program name, in this case 1234, and format the filename to something like: $DATA\PRG1234.NC.

You can have several different auto receive sets, each set with different parameters for program name extraction, filename creation, destination directory etc.


Enable auto receive

Use this field to enable the auto receive feature. Auto receive is used to automatically determine where files received from the CNC should be saved on the server. You must configure one or more auto receive sets to activate this feature.


Ignore start/end triggers

Check this field if DNC-Max should look for remote request before a start trigger has been received.


Trigger look ahead (lines)

Use this field to specify the number of lines that DNC-Max should continue to scan for more triggers, after a trigger is found. Once a trigger is found, only triggers higher on the 'Set list' are evaluated.
