In CNC systems, real-time applications such as prototyping of control algorithms and optimizing servo parameters are needed frequently. The most widely used software tools to build such applications are proprietary and expensive. This paper aims to introduce a totally open platform to build real-time applications for CNC systems, which is implemented by applying SCILAB to CNC systems in RTAI Linux environment. The architecture and implementation details of the platform are discussed in the paper. In the end, several samples are demonstrated to show the efficiency of building real-time applications on the platform. The platform can benefit users for its powerful functionalities and can be a reference to other industrial fields.
