I recently added a Robotool CVM1 mill to the shop. There is no documentati on. While the mill itself is operational and can be programmed from its ke ypad, I am unable to load G-code from an external PC through the serial RS-232 port. However, I can export code from the Robotool to an external PC, so I don't believe I have a hardware problem. I am advised that the Roboto ol controller requires that the first line of a G-code file being loaded fr om an external source contain specific initializing characters before the R obotool will accept the file. Something like a specific number of % signs and/or other symbols which are stripped off before code execution. Not qui te a password, but a similar function from my standpoint. Can anyone advis e on the characters to use?
