Applying the configuration data during commissioning
The "Apply" button
All saved configuration data that you create in the WBM is loaded into the gateway by
clicking the "Apply" button and used immediately. In this way, you can commission the
gateway step-by-step.
For information on the buttons of the WBM, see section General functions of the WBM
(Page 41).

Using a CLP

Exchangeable storage medium CLP
The gateway can be operated with an exchangeable CLP. The configuration data can be
stored on this exchangeable medium and this is retained if there is a power failure.
This exchangeable medium makes it easier to replace a damaged component or for any
other application of the gateway. By simply exchanging the plug, all data can be transferred
without having to be configured again.
The CLP is supplied with power by the gateway. The CLP retains all data permanently when
the power is turned off.
