Predator PC Requirements

Minimum PC Client Hardware Requirements

Support for the following minimum computer hardware is required for Predator v11 and v10 applications:

  • Windows 7 or newer OS - Learn More

  • Intel i3 Series or newer CPU
  • 256 GB or larger hard drive
  • 4 GB or more RAM
  • 1280x960 Minimum Graphics Resolution
  • Mouse
  • USB Type A port
  • Serial Ports & Ethernet Ports - As required for Predator DNC/#, FLM and MDC/#

NOTE: Lower screen resolutions are supported for Predator Touch HMI and other Predator utilities and testers.

NOTE: A nVidia or AMD based graphics card is highly recommended for Predator Virtual CNC along with 8 GB of RAM. Like most CAD/CAM systems, Predator Virtual CNC will often require high end PC components to support large and complex 3D simulations for optimum performance. Version 12 of Predator Virtual CNC utilizes the capabilities of newer CPUs to accelerate performance. Version 12 is a 64-bit application and as such requires a CPU with the SSE2 feature.

Recommended PC Server Requirements

We recommend the following minimum physical server or vm requirements for Predator v11 and v10 implementations:

  • Windows Server 2016 or newer OS - Learn More
  • Intel i5 Series or newer CPU
  • 512 GB or larger SSD or hard drive
  • 16 GB or more RAM
  • 1280x960 or more graphics resolution
  • Mouse
  • USB Type A port
  • Serial Ports & Ethernet Ports - As required for Predator DNC/#, FLM, MDC/# & RCM/#

NOTE: Not all implementations require a PC server. Predator DNC/#, FLM, MDC/# and RCM/# are considered server based applications and have server PC requirements. Commonly a single server PC is required for most Predator applications. It is also common for the Predator application server to also host Microsoft SQL Server Express.

NOTE: Predator RCM requires the Fanuc Robot Server item RTL-RSR to be purchased from Fanuc Robotics. This PC option needs to be installed on the same PC running Predator RCM.
