Info on data capture from HAAS Classic

Machine brand: HAAS Automation

Controller type: HAAS Classic


 

In this guide

Step 1 – Tell us about your machine

Step 2 – Order Apogean™

Step 3 – Open the box and get things ready

Step 4 – Connect the HAAS Classic controller to Apogean™


Step 1 - tell us about your machine for data capture from HAAS Classic

Step 1 – Tell us about your machine

 
  • Machine brand and model
  • Controller model
  • Confirm that your controller version is “HAAS Classic”
  • Are you currently using the serial port on your HAAS Classic controller for a DNC?  If yes, what is the brand and model of the DNC?
  • Provide a TCP/IP address for Apogean™
  • Are you going to connect Apogean™ to your network using a wired or wireless connection?
  • What smart manufacturing industry standard protocols do you need?
    • OPC UA
    • MTConnect
    • Both
    • Something else

Step 2 - order Apogean for data capture from HAAS Classic

Step 2 – Order Apogean™

 

You can order Apogean™ from Toward Zero or your systems integrator.  We'll configure the intelligent data collection device and ship it to you.


Step 3 - open the box and get things ready for data capture from HAAS Classic

Step 3 – Open the box and get things ready

 
  • Decide where to put Apogean™ inside the control cabinet
    • Mounting option 1: 5” DIN rail for typical installation (LEDs, connectors face out)
    • Mounting option 2: Flat surface inside control cabinet (LEDs, connectors face up)
  • Connect the power: power cable included, requires 100-240V ~50/60Hz 1.0A
  • Connect the optional wireless antenna: requires 802.11ac WiFi or Bluetooth 4.2

Step 4 - connect the HAAS Classic controller to Apogean for data capture from HAAS Classic

Step 4 – Connect the HAAS Classic controller to Apogean™

 

OPTION A — Serial port “open”

  • If the serial port is open, use a serial cable to connect the HAAS Classic to Apogean™ (Diagrams A, B)
  • Enable communication on the HAAS Classic using the instructions included with Apogean™
  • Connect Apogean™ to the plant network using Ethernet (Diagram A) or wireless connection (Diagram B)

OPTION B — Serial port “not open”

  • If the serial port is already used for DNC (Diagram C), Apogean™ can replace the DNC connection as well as capture machine data; you'll now use the serial port for both DNC download and to capture smart manufacturing data.

    HAAS Classic → Apogean™ → plant network

    Note: If the DNC software does not have the capability to transfer programs to a shared folder, then this option won't serve your needs. In this case, contact Toward Zero for help to capture data from your CNC machine.

  • Remove the existing conversion adapter and the serial cable from the controller and from the network; this equipment is no longer needed (Diagram D)

    Note: If there's a patch cable present, keep it connected to the network if you intend to use a wired connection from Apogean™ to the network

Connect Apogean™ to HAAS Classic controller via serial cable

 
  • Connect Apogean™ to the controller using the serial cable provided with Apogean™ (Diagrams E, F)
  • Connect Apogean™ to the plant network using Ethernet (Diagram E) or wireless connection (Diagram F)
  • Enable communication on the HAAS Classic using the instructions included with Apogean™
  • Connect Apogean™ to your smart manufacturing systems over the plant network to see your new data
