    Default Reading inputs from a program on Genos lathe w/OSP300 - how?

    On Fanuc and Mitsubishi machines, it is possible to directly read a value from the PLC, so aside from the provided external M-codes, you can connect anything to any available X-input and read the value.

    I figure a similar thing must be available on my Okuma?

    What I am trying to do is add some external sensors and read on/off values within my program.

    Would love to hear a report if you do find an answer. IME the wealth of knowledge available for these controllers is extraordinary limited relative to the FANUC and SIEMENS controllers I deal with every day.

    There has to be an advanced programming manual somewhere that has some documentation on stuff like this.
