What does the RJ-45 Ethernet Port do on the Floppy Drive Emulator?
Currently, the RJ-45 Ethernet port is not an active Ethernet Port on the FD Connect. It is there for future enhancements.
More about the floppy drive emulator from SFA:
Our Floppy Drive Emulator, available in three models, acts as a Floppy Emulator (AKA Floppy USB Emulator), is easy to install, requires no system configuration/debugging, & replaces the need for floppy disks, which are very difficult to obtain. Works with many different machines, with specific models for Haas machines and Okuma machines.
The drive emulates your existing floppy drive & acts as if the floppy drive was never removed. Works with almost any existing 720k/1.44MB capacity DOS format floppy drive. 28 or 32 pin ribbon cables systems are supported & will connect to your existing power cable.
Works in PCs & in CNC machinery such as Haas, Mazak, Fadal, Mitsubishi, Omniturn, Centroid, Robots, Flame Cutters, & Greco boxes, with new models being added to our compatibility list monthly! Your time is valuable in the shop floor environment. Stop using it to search for old media!
