Looking to add DNC to 41 machines (HAAS, Brother, Fanuc) wirelessly. What comes with this product when we purchase? What do I need to purchase separately? Website doesn't provide much and there is no contact section. Any help is appreciated

The CNCs probably don't have WIFI built in. I assume you'll be using WIFI-RS232 boxes? So you'd need to buy those of course. (RS232 to the CNC and WIFI to your network.

Most of the WIFI boxes come with software that makes the Box's RS232 port look, to windows, like a local RS232 'COM' port. If you use that connection method then you just connect EasyDNc to that COM port. The fact that the port is actually some distance away over the network is transparent. DNC doesn't know or care. It just handles it like a local COM port.

But... In my exprience that kind of virtual com port isn't always reliable. Try it of course because it's the easiest but also consider the other way. This is where you set up the WIFI box as a Serial Port server. Instead of connecting to the Box's 'COM' port you connect easydnc to the Box's IP address.
