Product Overview

The Fanuc Focas Ethernet device driver provides data exchange between OPC clients and Focas CNCs. The driver also supports the unsolicited communications mode of the Fast Ethernet card. Kepware automatically optimizes your data acquisition based on client demand. Data integrity is ensured with our extensive error handling.

This driver uses and requires either the Focas 1 or the Focas 2 interface libraries that are available from FANUC America Corporation. (The Focas2 Library combines both Ethernet and HSSB capabilities.) Although it is not required that the library is installed in order to create a server project, the project will not run without it. This software may be obtained from a FANUC distributor, or by calling 1-888-FANUC-US (1-888-326-8287).
