Wireless DNC

Moxa Hardware

A wireless DNC system provides manufacturers with many advantages including the flexibility to move machines and avoid clearance issues typically associated with hard-wired DNC Manufacturing Execution Systems. The Serial Bridge creates a wireless connection between a wireless LAN device with a serial port. This wireless hardware device has been tested and certified by the BTS QA team to offer reliable wireless DNC.

Works with existing 802.11 a/b/g wireless networks and access points

  • Supports WEP, WPA, WPA2 data encryption for security purposes
  • Support LEAP security protocol
  • Serial interface for RS232/422/485

The wireless units on each machine convert the incoming NC programs from Ethernet data into RS232 signals for input into the CNC’s serial communications port. The DNC server includes a software application that assigns a specific IP address for each of the communications ports. This function eliminates the need for a separate serial port server and enables the system to transmit data to the correct RS232 converting device.
