1.0 Introduction
The ProtoTRAK Offline Programming System allows you to write, edit, and inspect programs
for your ProtoTRAK using most standard IBM compatible computers.
Programming with the Offline system is essentially the same as programming through the
ProtoTRAK keyboard with a few differences. This manual will provide installation instructions
for the offline and highlight the differences in programming between using the offline and
the control pendant. The basic programming instruction is left to the programming,
operating, and care manual you received with your ProtoTRAK CNC.
This manual is a part of the Offline Programming option ordered with part number PT4OL.
The offline programming option includes:

ProtoTRAK PT4OL CD (P/N 23823-2)

Parallel (P/N 22648-2), or USB (P/N 23770) Hardware Keys

Manual (P/N 23298)
In addition, you are entitled to a free copy of each of these programming manuals, download
from website www.southwesternindustries.com
For our PT8OL offline software, which is free to the user and can be downloaded from our
website, this manual also contains a few pages that pertain specifically to it. Please note that
section 3.0 is not applicable to this software and hence no option key is necessary.
Virus Protection:
As a device, ProtoTRAK CNCs are not generally susceptible to viral infections. The part “programs”
they run are non-executable text files. You can further assure protection by avoiding e-mail
programs and web browser programs loaded onto the ProtoTRAK and by using a router with a
firewall. An anti-virus program is not necessary since the virus risk is low, and is not recommended
because the background tasks may cause damage by interfering with ProtoTRAK real-time operation.
Microsoft Updates:
Please note that the ProtoTRAK control is not designed to automatically download updates from
Microsoft, or for that matter any 3rd party software. There is only a limited amount of free space on
the compact flash card, and downloading files to it until it is full may result in the ProtoTRAK to stop
working properly.
Also note, that administrators must exclude the ProtoTRAK from programs such as Windows Server
Update Service, where the software will automatically try to download updates to the control.
2.0 Offline Computer Requirements
The ProtoTRAK Offline is designed to run on an IBM compatible PC, Pentium II or higher, CDROM drive, 256 MB RAM, 100MB free hard disk space, and Windows XP, Vista or Window 7.

ProtoTRAK Offline Programming Manual
3.0 Installing the ProtoTRAK Offline Programming
System
The ProtoTRAK Offline system will be installed onto the hard disk of your computer. In order
to save programs or use software options it will be necessary to install a hardware key in
either the parallel (see Section 3.5) or USB (see Section 3.1) port.
ProtoTRAK Offline Versions
The ProtoTRAK Offline system comes with a CD that contains three different versions of the
ProtoTRAK Control.
Use the file starting with “pt4ol” to install the software to program the ProtoTRAK VM, SM, VL
and SL.
Use the file starting with “sxol” to install the software to program the ProtoTRAK SMX and
SLX.
Use the file starting with “pmxol” to install the software to program the ProtoTRAK PMX.
The EMX/ELX and TMX are free downloads available from our website at any time. Because
they are free, they do not require the options key discussed in the sections below. For any
of the above mentioned software, please visit www.southwesternindustries.com
You may install all of them if you wish to program all control types.
3.1 Installing the USB Options Key & Driver
3.1.1 Installing the USB Hardware Key (Dongle)
Note: The purpose of the Sentinel Drivers is for the USB dongle you’ll have obtained for your
offline. The drivers are a set of instructions for the computer on how to interpret the
functionality of the dongle. The dongle itself serves as a key, enabling your offline to perform
most if not all the functions that it’s capable of. Without this, your offline will simply work as
a demo and you’ll be unable to save files and perform other functions. This dongle contains
the options you’ve purchased, such as the DXF option.
*** Do not plug in the USB dongle beforehand. Failure to comply may mean having to go
through the driver removal process, only to have to reinstall everything again. ***
To install the Sentinel Drivers you’ll need to perform the following functions:
1. Insert CD (P/N 23823-2) into your CD drive.
2. Double Click My Computer, then the CD-ROM Drive, then on the Sentinel Protection
Installer executable file. For a note about installing on Vista see section 3.1.2.

4. Click Start, then Shutdown and Restart.
5. Once computer has restarted, insert dongle into an open USB port.
6. A USB icon should appear near the time with a bubble floating above it reading “Safe Net
USB UltraPRO/SuperPro”. The “Found New Hardware” bubble will then follow. Once
it disappears, the dongle should be fully installed.
7. Launch the offline software of your choice then go into Program In/Out, Save, and verify
if the Save File is in black.

ProtoTRAK Offline Programming Manual
3.5 Using the Parallel Options Key
3.5.1 Installing on Windows XP
Note: Unless you have a problem, you will not need to install the hardware key drivers on the
PT4OL CD. If you do, follow the instructions for installing the Sentinel Drivers.
1.
Insert the hardware key (aka dongle) that came with your offline kit into the printer
port of your computer. If you have a printer cable already using this port, the
hardware key should be plugged into the computer and the printer cable then
plugged into the hardware key.
2.
Follow the instructions in section 3.1.1.
3.6 Checking the Hardware Key Installation
You can assure that the hardware key has been installed properly by starting the ProtoTRAK
Offline program and going to the Program In/Out Mode. If the SAVE key is grayed out, the
hardware key is not being recognized.
Be sure to double-check the physical installation of the key. If you did not already load the
sentinel drivers found on the CD, do so now. Refer previous sections above for instructions
on how to install the key.
If you still have problems, contact the Southwestern Industries Service Department
at (800) 367-3165.
3.7 Software Options
There are a number of optional converters available with your ProtoTRAK Offline system. The
converters that convert past ProtoTRAK and TRAK CNC systems to work in the V, SX and S
series CNC’s are provided at no charge. Other converters are available, generally at a price, and
it is our intention to add to the library of converters over time.
To check to see which converters are available and active with your offline software, go to the
Set Up Mode, Service Codes, Software, Code 318. All available converters are listed. The ones
in black are currently activated, the grayed out ones are not activated.
See the Programming and Operation manual for your ProtoTRAK CNC for more information
about converters.

4.0 Programming with ProtoTRAK Offline
Once you launched the offline software of your choice you will see a screen that looks similar
Figure 4.0 below. Note – the PMX and TMX software will look a little different.
Figure 4.0
The first Offline Screen.
Each Offline kit contains the program to run all of the current ProtoTRAK controls. On Figure
4.0 above, the screen says "ProtoTRAK VM" which is the CNC used on TRAK V series milling
machines. You can change the system by using the softkeys in the F7 and F8 positions. For
example, if you wanted to program (or look at) the ProtoTRAK VL CNC for TRAK V Series
Lathes, you would select the softkey "Go To Lathe". Once the system is switched to a lathe
CNC, the F8 softkey will say "Go To Mill".
The softkey selections may be made either with your computer's mouse or using the function
(F) keys on the keyboard. For the Offline, the F1 softkey "Check System" may be ignored.
To begin programming, press alt+M to get to the Select Mode screen of the ProtoTRAK.
Using the offline is almost identical to using the ProtoTRAK CNC at your machine tool.
The next sections will give you the keyboard equivalents for the hard keys on the ProtoTRAK
CNC display.
To quit the ProtoTRAK Offline application press the PAUSE BREAK key on your computer
keyboard. Be sure to save programs and tools before quitting. If the ProtoTRAK does not
respond to the PAUSE BREAK key press, it could be that you inadvertently deselected the
ProtoTRAK window. Simply mouse click anywhere within the ProtoTRAK screen and press
PAUSE BREAK again.
To minimize the ProtoTRAK screen so you can see the Windows desktop, press Alt + W, then
F1. To get the ProtoTRAK screen back, press Alt + B.

5.0 Turning On/Off SLX and SMX Options
For programs that are written on the ProtoTRAK Offline system to work on the CNC, there must be
feature agreement between the two. Some feature dissimilarity will simply be ignored. For example,
if spindle speeds are present in the program but not an active feature of the ProtoTRAK, the input for
spindle speed will simply be ignored. Other differences will stop the program from running. For
example, a program that calls for an irregular island event will not work on a ProtoTRAK model that
lacks this feature.
The ProtoTRAK offline for the SMX and SLX comes with the control software options loaded. It is
easy to turn these features on or off in order to produce a program that is suitable for the machine.
1. From the Select Mode screen, press alt+W.
2. Select the softkey labeled: Options On/Off.
3. Use the Data Forward and Data Back softkeys and the On/Off toggle softkey to select and
configure the options as needed.
6.0 Setting Screen Resolutions
Resizing the ProtoTRAK Offline in order to fill the screen is accomplished through the properties
function of your Windows® Operating System.
6.1 Windows XP/7 and Vista

Windows XP allows you to associate the screen setting to the application so that it
automatically resizes itself when the application is launched and then resizes when the
application is closed.
- 25 Southwestern Industries, Inc.
ProtoTRAK Offline Programming Manual

To do this, first, place an icon on your desktop for the Offline programming system. You
may want to create different shortcuts on your desktop to call up the different versions.
For the VM, SM, VL and SL version of offline, the file that starts the program is
“\\PT4\PT4.exe”. For the SMX and SLX, the file that starts the program is
“\\Pt4sx\PT4SX.exe” .

Place the cursor on the desktop icon, then right click.

Select Properties. In the “Run” field, change to “maximize”. Then click on the
compatibility tab. Under the Display Settings, select “Run in 640 x 480 Resolution”.
The 640 x 480 resolution is now associated with the ProtoTRAK Offline.
7.0 Opening / Saving Programs using the
EMX / ELX offline software
The EMX / ELX offline software saves and retrieves files from the two different folders within the
location where the offline software was copied to. 1 So, for example, if the offline software was
copied to a PT6OFFLINE folder within the C drive, the location of the stored MX2 files would be
“C:\PT6OFFLINE\Programs”.
When you wish to transfer these files to your ProtoTRAK EMX or ELX control, you will first need to
copy them onto a USB thumbdrive.2 From there, you can take the thumb drive over to your
ProtoTRAK EMX / ELX and run a service code 341 to transfer all the files into the ProtoTRAK’s internal
storage.
If you purchased the USB MEMORY option along with your ProtoTRAK EMX / ELX, the offline software
is included within the thumb drive. The default storage directory is ready to use with your ProtoTRAK
EMX / ELX control.
1.
2.
The “Programs” folder contains the mill part programs while the lathe part programs are stored in
“Lathe Programs” folder.
The easiest way to do this is to copy over the desired folder to the root directory of the USB
thumbdrive.
8.0 Opening / Saving Programs using the
TMX offline software
The TMX offline software looks at the first available removable drive to open and save programs
from, just like the actual machine. On that removable drive, there should be a folder called “2OP
PROGRAMS”, where all the part programs will be located. So, for example, if your USB flash drive
was recognized as drive E on your PC, then the location of your programs would be E:\2OP
PROGRAMS.
Please note that the TMX software only recognizes two kinds of files. Files with the .PT4 file
extension, with only a numerical name less than 8 digits, and gcode files with the .GCD file extension.
Once the programs are saved to the flash drive, it is ready to take over to the ProtoTRAK 2OP
machine and once it is plugged in, the TMX control will be able to open them directly from the flash
drive.
