5.1

EMBEDDED ETHERNET PORT AND PCMCIA ETHERNET CARD
The embedded Ethernet function can be used by selecting one of two types of devices: the embedded Ethernet port and PCMCIA Ethernet card. A selection can also be made to stop the embedded Ethernet function. The PCMCIA Ethernet card is to be inserted into the memory card slot for temporary communication.
CAUTION 1 When using the embedded Ethernet function for the
first time, set an IP address and other items carefully as instructed by the network administrator, then perform a sufficient communication test. Note that an incorrect IP address or other setting may cause a communication failure on the entire network. 2 A unit such as a PC situated in the same network can increase the communication processing load on the CNC even if the unit is not communicating with the CNC. Avoid connecting the CNC to a factory-wide network. Use a router or the like to separate the network including the CNC from the other networks.
NOTE 1 Use the PCMCIA Ethernet card designated by
FANUC. General Ethernet cards available on the market cannot be used. 2 The PCMCIA Ethernet card is used for FANUC LADDER-III or SERVO GUIDE. 3 Use the PCMCIA Ethernet card just for temporary communication as described above. Avoid using the card for continuous communication. 4 The PCMCIA Ethernet card is inserted into a memory card slot, with a part of the card left uninserted. When using the PCMCIA Ethernet card, take great care not to damage the card by hitting the protruding part of the card. When the card becomes unnecessary, remove the card immediately, in order to prevent any damage to the card.

SETTING UP THE EMBEDDED ETHERNET FUNCTION

5.2.1

This section describes the setting of parameters for the embedded Ethernet function.
Setting of the FOCAS2/Ethernet Function

This subsection describes the settings required to operate the FOCAS2/Ethernet function.

Notes on using the FOCAS2/Ethernet function for the first time

NOTE 1 When running user's original application software
created by using the FOCAS2/Ethernet function, use the embedded Ethernet port. 2 The FOCAS2/Ethernet function allows up to five FOCAS2/Ethernet clients to be connected to one CNC. 3 Concurrent access by multiple applications or personal computers may overload the CNC, reducing the communication speed.

5.2.1.1 Operation on the FOCAS2/Ethernet setting screen

On the Ethernet parameter setting screen, set the parameters for operating the FOCAS2/Ethernet function.

Procedure

1 Press the function key

.

2 Soft keys [EMBED] and [PCMCIA] appear. (When there is no soft keys, press the continue key.)
3 To display the Ethernet Setting screen for the embedded Ethernet port or the PCMCIA Ethernet card, press soft key [EMBED] or [PCMCIA], respectively.
4 Press soft keys [COMMON] and [FOCAS2] and then enter parameters for the items that appear.

NOTE 1 The parameters for the embedded Ethernet port
and the parameters for the PCMCIA Ethernet card are independent of each other. 2 The settings of the FOCAS2/Ethernet function for the PCMCIA Ethernet card are made when a connection to SERVO GUIDE and FANUC LADDER-III is established.

Item PORT NUMBER (TCP)
PORT NUMBER (UDP) TIME INTERVAL

Description Specify a port number to be used with the FOCAS2/Ethernet function. The valid input range is 5001 to 65535. Set this item to 0 when it is used as the FOCAS2/Ethernet function. Set this item to 0 when it is used as the FOCAS2/Ethernet function.

NOTE 1 When a connection to the CIMPLICITY i CELL is
established, set the UDP port number and time interval above as described in the FANUC CIMPLICITY i CELL Operator's Manual (B-75074). 2 The unit of the time interval is 10 ms. The allowable range is between 10 and 65535. A time interval less than 100ms cannot be set. 3 Decreasing the time interval setting increases the communication load and can affect the network performance. Example) If the interval is set to 100 (100 x 10 ms
= 1 second), broadcast data is sent every 1 second.

Initial setting of the PCMCIA Ethernet card

The PCMCIA Ethernet card is factory-set to the following default

values, for ease of connection with SERVO GUIDE or FANUC

LADDER-III.

IP ADDRESS

: 192.168.1.1

SUBNET MASK

: 255.255.255.0

ROUTER IP ADDRESS : None

PORT NUMBER (TCP) : 8193

PORT NUMBER (UDP) : 0

TIME INTERVAL

: 0

If a specified IP address is changed to a blank (space), the specified

setting is reset to the default value.

The embedded Ethernet port does not have a default value.
