14 User Data Backup/Series Machine Start-Up
14.2 Creating a series machine start-up file using HMI Advanced
The contents of a series machine start-up file created for the NC comprises
mainly the following data:
– Configuration data
– Option data
– Machine data
– Setting data
– Tool offset
– Parts programs
– Cycle programs
– GUDs (Global User Data).
The contents of a series machine start-up file created for the PLC comprise all
blocks loaded at the time when the data backup was made:
– OB (organization blocks)
– FB (function blocks)
– SFB (system function blocks)
– FC (functions)
– SFC (system functions)
– DB (data blocks)
– SDB (system data blocks).
The contents of a series machine start-up file created for the HMI Advanced
comprise all data stored in the HMI database in the directory "dh" at the moment
when the data backup was made.
The creation and output of the series machine start-up file is started with select-
ing the component to which the file is to be output.
Components that can be selected:
– PG (programming device, e.g. PG740)
– Floppy disk drive (option)
– Archive (HMI data management on the hard disk of the PCU)
– NC Card.
