Our new Kia has a fanuc oi control and uses either a rs232
serial interface to a computer, ethernet ( much too expensive)
or a pmacia card.
I would like to find a low cost solution to network this
machine because using the serial interface with a computer
is akward . The fanuc does not have a terminal emulator on the control.
I noticed that pcmcia memory cards are used with laptops, and
belkin makes a pcmcia bluetooth card. I'm not sure if this is strictly an
interface to access the host computer, or you can
actually send data files to the card itself for storage. If the latter
is the case, I can use a pc to send data files to pcmcia card that
will sit fanuc pcmcia slot forever and never
need to be removed.
Anyone using this sort of set up ?
