Program backup/download to EX-RC1


Recommended Posts

One very important benefit of having an SD card on OPLC controllers is the ability to backup and/or clone OPLC programs and OS. If needed, a technician without a programming background can replace a faulted unit and download the backups from the SD card using only the controller faceplate--no PC required.

For EX-RC1 modules, it would be great if it will also have SD card for backup purposes. Since there is no HMI, program uploading/downloading between EX-RC1 and SD card may be controlled by a DIP switch or part of a startup routine of the EX-RC1.

An alternative is to be able to backup and/or download programs and OS to/from an OPLC's SD card to a linked EX-RC1 module.
