FastLINK™ is a communications program for transfering data between PC and CNC. The program is specific to older Burny controllers including the popular 2.5 and 3 series.
DNC-CNC COMMUNICATIONSFastLINK™ DNC Software is a specific comms solution for older Burny controllers. As the world’s premier control historically, there are still many thousands in use on 2nd hand & retrofitted flame and gas cutting machines used for steel shape cutting.
Note that the more recent Burny controllers do not require DNC as they communicate via TCP/IP (a Network cable) - this is true for most modern controls, however the older controllers each have their own unique communications protocol which requires a comms solution such as FastLINK™.
The program performs the transfer of files by opening and controlling serial com ports on a computer to enable data transfer to CNC machines. It runs in unattended (download) mode which allows the cutting machine operator to download a program which resides on the PC without having to disturb the computer operator. The SERVER mode runs completely in the background under Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8).
Note that this is a serial communications program that requires a valid SERIAL port under Windows.
FastLINK™ includes the following features:
