    Default Far fetched request, Okuma LB-15

    So i bought these old Okuma LB-15 with OSP5000M-G operating system on them.
    They been run with a DNC unit from a central server for a while. But the last owner just never bothered of hooking them up.

    Which make me assume that they most likely have a drip feed option..

    Anyone knows what steps i should make to figure out the capabilities of the main unit?
    I have no manuals or instructions.. i have been clicking around in the machines so far blindly.

    Will attach an image of the DNC unit that was connected to the machine

    I have never seen such a unit and are not sure if i can use it. But used simpler dnc units on other older siemens machines and would be neat if i could make the dripfeed work.

    Did you check ebay for manuals?
    Or, try this to download free manuals:

    These should be available. Are you able to connect to the machine? When I had my older than your Okuma's, I used a desktop|CIMCO Editor -> ethernet -> WiFi adapter -> RS-232 port on the back of the machines to transfer programs. WiFi adapter and debugging of the system provided by Shop Floor Automation.
