Configuring the Hardware Monitoring Signals in DNC-Max

Once the monitoring boxes are wired into the machine's electrical system and the indicator LEDs on the MDC box light up as required, the next thing to do is to configure the DNC-Max serial protocol to respond to the signals.

Assuming that Signal 1 on the MDC box is connected to the Cycle Start signal on the machine and Signal 2 is connected to the M30/M02 lamp, part catcher or cycle counter on the machine.

Open DNC-Max Client, highlight the relevant machine and open the port settings (Port / Configure Port) then click the + sign next to Messaging to expand the tree menu.
