Data backup and series commissioning
External data backup
After commissioning, your settings are saved in the converter so that they are protected
against power failure.
We recommend that you additionally back up the settings on a storage medium outside the
converter. Without backup, your settings could be lost if the converter developed a defect
(see also Manuals for your converter (Page 334)).
The following storage media are available for your settings:
● Memory card
● Operator panel
Data backup using operator panels with USB connection with the PG/PC is not possible
If the converter is connected to a PG/PC via a USB cable, you can save any data on the
memory card using an operator panel.
• Before you save data to the memory card using an operator panel, disconnect the USB
connection between the PG/PC and converter.
Carrying out series commissioning
Series commissioning is the commissioning of several identical drives.
The Control Unit to which the settings are transferred has the same article number and the
same or a higher firmware version as the source Control Unit.
You must proceed as follows to carry out series commissioning:
1. Commission the first converter.
2. Back up the settings of the first converter to an external storage medium.
3. Transfer the settings of the first converter to another converter via the storage medium.
