What is Fanuc FOCAS?

FOCAS is the standard protocol for collecting data from FANUC CNC machines. It represents a collection of library files (dll) which can be embedded into software applications.

What is Fanuc FOCAS used for?

The FANUC FOCAS libraries provide access to the information stored inside a CNC machine (e.g. status data) and communication is established using Ethernet or High Speed Serial Bus (HSSB).

The Cybus Connectware makes it possible to easily interact with CNC machines via the Fanuc communication protocol. This protocol implementation offers the opportunity to  collect different data from Fanuc CNC machines. It also provides the user with the ability to create endpoints for reading and subscribe for changes on the data provided by them.
