Bug fix - Software does not work when using START AT on any event after an irregular pocket. This problem also happens when using an irregular pocket within our island and new clear off event.

New features in version 2.6.0

  • RMX:
    • New CLEAR OFF event (option)
    • Improved tapping accuracy for TMC12, TMC14, TMC12-12K, and TMC14-12K machines.
      (Note: AC drive parameters must be updated along with software for these machine types)
  • RLX:
    • Retain angle in Do One taper
  • Other:
    • Ability to sort TOOL TABLE by columns
    • This version nows supports VMC2 machines
    • Code 1 - Added ability to mark log and add notes by using the * button
    • Added Floating License for offline product (option)
    • Ability to mode out from middle of toolpath calculation
  • Known issue:
    • There is a bug when trying to INSERT a CLEAR OFF event, where it will not prompt you correctly to define the stock. To work around this, you can create the CLEAR OFF at the end of your program, copy it using the Clipboard feature, and then use Copy Insert to put it where you want in the program. This will be addressed in a future release.

Instructions for updating RMX & RLX Pendants

  1. Disable your anti-virus software before downloading. (Some anti-virus software may silently omit necessary files, and cause your machine to have unexpected symptoms.)
  2. Be sure to delete any previous PT10-SETUP folder from your USB flash drive first.
  3. Download the RX_x.x.x.zip file to your computer.
  4. Open the newly downloaded zip file to reveal the PT10-Setup folder.
  5. Unzip/extract the folder (or drag and drop it) from the zip screen to your USB drive.
  6. Navigate to your USB flash drive, and open the PT10-SETUP folder.
  7. Double click on ValidateFiles.exe
    This will run a quick CRC check to ensure that the download is complete and not corrupt. You should get a confirmation that looks like this:
    CRC Check Confirmation - ProtoTRAK RX CNC Software
    In the event that any of them failed, please retry the steps, making sure to disable your antivirus and deleting any previous instance of PT10-SETUP folder from your USB before proceeding.
  8. Take your USB flash drive and plug it into your ProtoTRAK RMX / RLX control.
  9. Go to SETUP, SERV CODES and then enter code 316, and press ABS SET.
  10. Highlight the drive letter corresponding to your USB flash drive, and then press YES twice to initiate the software update.
