    SUB AND SSB FILES

    I'm new to Okuma machines and trying to figure some things out. We have a MX50 with a OSP-U100M control. I'm trying to see what .sub and .ssb programs are loaded on it. How can I view and/or download these files. Thanks in advance

    If you go to edit mode and just do a DIR (directory) all files should show up that are in memory (MD1. There may be .LIB (library and SDF files as well as the standard MIN (main programs). You also might want to do DIR MD0: to see what is in system memory. That is where the system files are kept, but sometimes users store some files there as well (larger storage).
    Experience is what you get just after you needed it.

    Thanks OkumaWiz, MD1: showed an .ssb file listed in with the .min files. Couldn't figure out how to page thru to see more files. I know there's more. MD0: listed .pbu files, system files I guess? Is there a way to down load them? Do I need to? Main thing was to find all the macro programs.

    I think the backspace key will take it to the next page. The PBU, SYS and other files are system files. You should have backup disks in the back of the machine that can be used in the event of a memory failure of these files. I'd backup everything just in case. Image the floppies if possible. SECTOR by sector imaging is needed since they are in Okuma format. MSB files are for gauging. There is no "tool changer macro" as standard since it is hard wired into the control software. That being said, many people use a macro program just to avoid common errors experienced with the tool changer such as calling the tool already in the spindle. If you register it as a LIBRARY program, then it will be available from any program using the CALL statement and will load on machine boot into memory.

    Here's a copy:

    $TOOLCHECK.LIB%
    OTCHK
    ( SET GCODE PARAM. G111 TO OTCHK )
    ( AT TOOL CHANGE KEY IN G111 T= TOOL NO. Q = NEXT TOOL EX: G111 T1 Q2)
    IF [ VTLCN EQ PT ]NST1 (ACTIVE TOOL)
    IF [ VTLNN EQ PT ]NRT1 (NEXT TOOL)
    IF [ VTLNN EQ 0 ]NOT1 (NEXT TOOL)
    M64
    NOT1 T=PT
    NRT1 M06
    NST1
    IF [ PQ EQ EMPTY ]NEND (IF READY TOOL EMPTY/JUMP )
    IF [ VTLNN EQ PQ ]NEND (IF PREP TOOL IS AT NEXT TOOL POS./JUMP)
    IF [ VTLNN EQ 0 ]NTT1 (IF NEXT TOOL HAS NO VALUE)
    M64 (NEXT TOOL POT RETURN)
    NTT1
    T=PQ
    M356 (NEXT POT ADVANCE)
    NEND G56 H=VTLCN
    D=VTLCN
    RTS
    PQ DEF: WHEN P IS ATTACHED TO A LETTER IT BECOMES READABLE
    %

    Best regards,

    I'm trying to see what .sub and .ssb programs are loaded on it.
    hy, if you wish for a specific macro, i will try to help you

    in many cases, is easier to re-write, than try to understand what others have done; however, there are some macros that are a bit more complicated, like probing, fixture tracking, tlm, etc

    are you looking for something ?

    calling the tool already in the spindle
    i don't know how, but teahole managed to get an alarm-B for that ... kindly
