If you want to upgrade your machine, you can archive the NCK data
beforehand. In this way, the drive data is saved in ASCII format, i.e.
you can change the drive data.
You can archive data via the RS-232 interface or archive it to the NC
Card or to other drives connected with the PCU (logical drives).
Press the "ETC" key and the "Upgrade" softkey.
Choose where you want to save the archive.
Press the "Start" softkey, and enter the archive name.
The NCK data (including drive data) are saved in an archive file.
The archive file can be read in via the "Data in" function.
If the "Network and disk drive management on PCU 20" option is
enabled, you can connect the control to an external network drive
connected to the PCU or another computer and select and run
programs from there.
This function is also available in the "Program" operating area.
