The SuperCom Heidenhain Library enables fast and accurate data acquisition of machine and process state data from Heidenhain controlled machines.

The SuperCom Heidenhain Library contains functions to control many simultaneous, stable and fast, data connections to Heidenhain TNC controllers. The connection can be setup using the serial interfaces or the TCP/IP protocol stack (Ethernet connection). The connection can be made locally within the factory or over a large distance via Modem, Internet or ISDN connection (see also SuperCom Suite).

The SuperCom Heidenhain Library supports data communication to different Heidenhain TNC through serial lines or TCP/IP (Ethernet connection).

Acquire and monitor Heidenhain TNC machine state data, machine states, production data, process data and more. Several functions enable fast data acquisition of the machine status. Collect data from the Heidenhain TNC machines (data collection software) or monitor the machine status (Machine Monitoring Software) of multiple machines simultaneously.

Loading and executing NC programs, checking files and directories, retrieving and examining machine parameters, log files (logbook), tool tables and much more. The SuperCom Heidenhain Library also contains direct memory access functions that can be used to retrieve or modify data directly from the PLC memory.

The overall information provided by the SuperCom functions by many different ways also enables monitoring the TNC machine status.

A Heidenhain TNC client simply connects to the SuperCom Heidenhain library with older and newer TNCs that have a serial or TCP/IP connection.

The SuperCom Heidenhain Library almost hides the complexity of the data communication to a Heidenhain TNC and provides functions that perform the most wanted tasks by using simple function calls. SuperCom establishes the connection to the Heidenhain TNC directly via the serial port or the TCP/IP protocol stack. The whole data communication is running transparently in background using high-speed functions achieving rapid results.

Direct access

The SuperCom Heidenhain Library is accessing the TNC directly without using any other third party software layer that often introduce huge delays or unknown behavior. The entire protocol stack is an optimized in-house development (as common to the SuperCom software) and do not use any external tools or libraries, drivers, OPC server, external programs etc. from third-party providers but rather accesses the TNC directly. And the SuperCom software is continuously updated.

Controlling many connections or machines concurrently is supported and that is common to SuperCom software.

SuperCom's Event-Driven file transfer functions enable accurate monitoring of the file transfer progress, providing continuously status information to the application, if needed.

The library includes high-speed functions for event-driven file transfer to and from the Heidenhain TNC (send files, receive files), list directories, create or delete directories, rename or delete files, read TNC configuration data, retrieve machine status, machine data, process data, read and write memory etc.

* The amount of information may vary between the different machines (machine specific limits).

The SuperCom Heidenhain Library implements the protocol functions using a SuperCom communication library (serial or TCP/IP) and the SuperCom LSV/2 protocol module* that provides a stable data communication link.

      
*Included with this library.

The SuperCom library provides fast and rock solid functions to extract information and control one or more TNC machines. It enables the software developer to control many connections to different TNC machines simultaneously. It enables to query information by different ways thus increasing the amount of information retrieved. Also, the amount of information supported and returned by the different TNC machines may differ.

Easy to use, stable and fast

The SuperCom software is particularly valued by industrial customers for its stability and speed. More than 30 years SuperCom software is supporting industrial customers in rough environment, often with strictly timing requirements.

There is only one API to learn! The same functions and parameters used with serial, TCP/IP or ISDN type of connections. Many sample programs included.

A list of some functions:   »Functions in the SuperCom Heidenhain library, Functions to access data in Heidenhain TNC 320, TNC426, TNC430, iTNC530, TNC620, TNC640, TNC7,  DataPilot, MANUALplus«

Technical Support

As with all SuperCom products, free technical support is included.
In addition to the large amount of functions contained in the SuperCom software, our customers enjoy our extensive information database on the various Heidenhain machines and machine data collected over the years and may help with difficult constellations.
