The product SINUMERIK 840D/810D
SINUMERIK 840D and 810D are CNC control systems (Computerized
Numerical Control) for machine tools.
You can implement the following basic functions (for a machine tool)
via the operator panel front of the CNC control:
Creating and adapting parts programs.
Execution of parts programs,
Input and output of parts programs and data,
Editing of data for programs,
Display and precisely recover alarms,
Editing machine data,
Creating communication connections between 1 or more
PCUs, or 1 or more NCs
(m:n, m-HMI units and n-NCK/PLC units).
The user can call up all the functions via the user interface.
The user interface consists of:
Display devices such as a screen, light diodes, etc.
Operator controls such as keys, switches, hand wheels, etc.
This Operator's Guide describes the procedure for PCU/PC with the
HMI Embedded Software, SW 6.5
The HMI Embedded software is installed in the PCU as standard
when supplied from the factory.
