    Default Backing Up Parameters? (OSP700L)

    I have an Okuma Lathe with OSP700L Control. What is the best way to go about backing up the parameters? I assume that there is a way to copy them to the floppy?

    Thanks

    the best way is to go into edit aux and do a data pip to an osp formated disk. this will make an A.top file on the disk. if the machine has a B turret you will need to do this 2 times, the second time (And second disk) you will designate B.top.

    Intialize two floppy disks which you will use as follows.

    1st disk : used for storing part program data and A.TOP file generated from the data PIP function.

    2nd disk : Used for storing *.PBU file parameter data.

    -Insert a new unformatted disk into the floppy disk drive.
    -Press EDIT AUX mode key.
    -Press the EXTEND function key (F8) once.
    -Press the INIT function key (F2), the CRT will display:

    =IN

    -Type in "FD0:" press WRITE key, CRT will display:

    intialize OK (Y/N) !

    ***IMPORTANT***
    IF NOTHING IS TYPED IN AND THE WRITE KEY IS PRESSED THE MEMORY FOR THE PART PROGRAMS WILL BE ERASED BECAUSE MD1: IS THE DEFAULT!!!!

    -Type "Y" and press WRITE key, the CRT will display:

    format (2DD-720K=0,2HD-1.44 M=1)!

    -Type in a "1" or "0" depending on the type of diskette you have and press the WRITE key.

    When the equal (=) sign appears, formatting is completed. This disk is now OSP formatted.



    BACKING UP PARAMETERS ON LATHES

    1. Go into PARAMETER mode and put the control in METRIC mode by changing NC Optional Parameter Bit #3 bit 0 to a 0.

    2. Go into EDIT/AUX mode and press F3 to access the PIP function. Press the COPY function key and key in MD1:*.*,FD0: and then press the WRITE key.

    3. After cursor returns and the light turns off on the disk drive, press F7 to quit the PIP function. Press F8 (extend) two times until you see F5 (data PIP) function key.

    3A. Press the F5 funtion key to enter the DATA PIP function. Press the F2 (output) key and key in FD0: and press the WRITE key. At the ! prompt, press the WRITE key again. This will create the A.TOP file which will be sent out to the floppy disk. When the cursor (>) reapprears at the bottom of the screen, the procedure is finished.

    ***IMPORTANT***
    On lathes with two turrets, it is best to make two seperate parameter backup files, one for the upper turret and the other for the lower turret. This can be done by keying in FD0:UP.TOP;A in step 3A above. Keying in FD0:LOW.TOP;B will create the parameter backup file for the lower turret. The filename can be up to 8 characters long and the file extension has to be TOP. the ;A and ;B are what tells the control to create a parameter backup file for only the upper or lower data.

    it's also possible to write parameters to MD1: and copy that to MSDOS format floppy after. Parameter file is just simple text - it's editable.
    Transfer to PC via RS232 is best.
    DPIP>, then "out", ten just <enter> for all parameters.

    Optional Parameter word Value

    Drip feed on this control is an optional extra, see the Okuma manual for instructions.

    Default Same Control

    How do you delete the protected .PBU files? I've went through the unprotect ;C procedure, and it errors out. They are eating up all the memory!

    Thanks,

    GP

    Cause that's part of the system software.

    I see the parameter back-up files in there. I agree they are they system files. I need to explain more.

    1. They had a problem with the machine.
    2. They restored the software
    3. Now I can only carry a couple programs, like the memory is less, or the .pbu's are hogging up all the space.
    4. I clicked the free soft key & it is full with two "small" programs (it's a lathe).

    Default Floppy D

    You must have Floppy-D for back-up and restore parameters.

    what memory size in kilobytes?
    what size these two part programs are?

    I tried this today on OSP7000. it works well.
    To write the file to MD1:......
    DPIP
    OUTPUT
    MD1:
    when asked for output data type press [WRITE]
    all parameters, offsets, user data etc is saved to file MD1:A.TOP

    For twin turret....
    If A turret offset/data is needed type MD1:A.TOP;A
    If B turret offset/data is needed type MD1:B.TOP;B

    In MSDOS mode press COPY, type MD1:A.TOP,FD0:
    to copy file to floppy

    File is just text sure, but to understand what the numbers mean its necessary to read operator manual pages which details what is what because it's a big mess of numbers that are not easy to understand without the manual
