Components Express is introducing the next generation of our popular CncGcoder® series, the CncGcoder® HD-TU package.  The CncGcoder® HD-TU combines all of the productive features you expect  from our CncGcoder® HD line combined with the updated ultra rugged Trimble® Nomad 1050 Handheld.  This unit meets IP68 specifications with an up-to date Windows Mobile 6.5 OS including Microsoft Office and Adobe Reader, VGA Color Touch screen, 1000 Mhz ARM CPU, and high capacity removable battery.  File Storage and Transfer support include USB Host jack, SD card slot, USB PC syncing, and Bluetooth Wireless.  The CncGcoder® HD-TU Model’s serial cable is made using extreme duty durable industrial wire for reliable connections even after millions of bends and flexes.

Designed for machine tool setup, maintenance, and programming personnel, the CncGcoder® HD-TU is a handheld tool for backing-up, editing, and transferring CNC machine tool G-Code programs. CncGcoder® HD-TU features an easy-to-use, PC compatible file system that allows users to store and organize G-Code programs in unlimited directories.  In addition to the large 8 Gig internal flash disk, the USB Host Jack and SD card slot offer limitless memory capabilities and enables the user to directly transfer the files between the CncGcoder®HD-TU and any PC.

The CncGcoder® HD-TU handheld exceeds IP68 specs and is liquid, dust, and shock-resistant and is designed to withstand a four-foot drop without damage. The extreme duty CNC serial cable uses an abrasion resistant industrial high-flex cable and thumb-screw connectors.  A numeric keypad allows quick program edits.  The removable high capacity rechargeable battery enables hours of continuous use between charges.

The complete package includes the handheld unit with the CncGcoder® software preinstalled, the extreme duty RS-232 serial cable, battery charger, USB Sync cable, Hand Strap, and is backed by a full factory warranty.  Current CncGcoder® users can easily migrate their G-code data and machine settings to the new CncGcoder® HD-TU handheld.

Use as a Productivity Tool

From the smallest job shops to the largest production lines, the CncGcoder®HD-TU is a useful tool for any size machine shop.  The built-in Office and PDF support allows you to manage all of your shop floor data including: G-Code files, Process Sheets, Part Prints, Setup Instructions, Machine Manuals, SPC Data, Tooling Lists, and Fixture Photos.  Save time and money by reducing your downtime and increasing your productivity.  You can spend more time using your machines than programming them.

Use to Store and Transfer G-Code Programs

Never need to worry about available memory on your CNC again.  Store your G-Code programs on your PC and then use your CncGcoder®HD-T to transfer the programs to your CNC when needed. (up to 1 MB per transfer is supported).  By displaying the program on the unit’s screen, you can be sure it is the correct the first time.  No time is wasted running to and from the computer to check what is being transferred.  You can just walk up to the machine and start communications.

Use to Backup G-Code Programs

Never lose a program when your CNC goes down.  Use the CncGcoder® to backup your CNC’s memory and parameters so you are able to reload the CNC when it is running again.

Reduce downtime when your DNC network goes down.  While you are waiting for the network to be repaired, use the CncGcoder® to transfer program to your machine and keep it cutting.

Use to Edit G-Code Programs

No need to run back to your computer to make simple program changes.  You can use the CncGcoder® to make quick program edits right in front of your CNC.  The built-in numeric keyboard makes it easy to change speeds, feeds, or even program numbers on the shop floor.  You can make your changes and send the new program to the CNC in seconds.

Use to Manage G-Code Programs

Never have difficulty finding the right program again.  File management has been simplified with the CncGcoder®.  The G-Code programs can be saved saved with descriptive names as PC formatted files.  These files can then be organized into any number of folders or directories.  The unit also supports standard USB pen/stick/thumb drives and SD flash cards for limitless memory capabilities.

Improved Durability

The shop hardened CncGcoder® was designed with your shop floor in mind.  The unit is liquid resistant, dust resistant, and shock resistant.  The CncGcoder®HD-T comes with a extreme duty serial cable that connects the unit to the RS-232 serial port on your CNC.  The cable screws into the base of the CncGcoder®HD and into the CNC’s port for a secure, reliable connection.
