usb connect – add usb to your cnc

The USB Connect series for USB CNC solutions will eliminate old technology on your CNC machines & bring new life to them with our USB solutions. Tired of CNCs with a floppy disk drive? Looking to add a USB port to your CNC control to transfer NC programs? Our USB Connect products, in both portable & pendant models, streamline loading & saving of part programs via USB connectivity, as well as drip-feeding to CNCs.

Our Floppy Drive Emulator acts as a USB Floppy Emulator, is easy to install, & requires no system configuration or debugging. It works in PCs & a vast list of CNC machines – call SFA at (877) 611-5825 with your floppy drive Make & Model info so we can confirm the ability to emulate!

Our USB Connect has flexible DNC firmware built into the unit, allowing connection to just about any machine tool CNC control with a USB directory listing.

Positioning the USB Connect controller close to the control allows the machine to run at its maximum baud rate, saves the operator time previously spent running from the PC to the machine to begin operation, & it adds extra protection from potential damage.

Store large part programs libraries on a single USB flash drive to send to CNCs, plus enjoy hardware & software flow control, plus Xmodem flow control.
