What are Predator DNC objects and what do they do? DNC Objects are software options that extend Predator DNC for special customer applications.
DNC Objects can add databases, spreadsheet and email connectivity, improve high-speed machining, offer greater lights out reliability, automatic error correction, and support for proprietary CNC controls. Predator DNC Objects support any RS232 hardware including DNC bundles, Flex series, and PC COM ports.
A DNC Object development kit is available for even further customization or integration.
NOTE: Predator DNC Clients usually do not require DNC Objects.
