Backup history display, PLC failure diagnosis, Battery replacement date management

 This new product (Model: CPSA-PCB100) connects to PLCs via Ethernet connection or RS-422A (optional) and can automatically read, save and restore programs and parameters of the connected PLC. It also can be monitored from office environment in remote area as an operational monitoring device of connected PLCs when this new product (Model: CPSA-PCB100) connect to network.
 All settings for device functions can be carried out via browser. To begin use, users need only perform settings for the program backup area, settings data addresses, backup cycles, etc.
 To minimize line stoppage times caused by failures at manufacturing facilities, it is common to periodically perform PLC backup for the controllers of each piece of equipment. However, when there are large numbers of PLC devices, the periodic backing up of these devices by maintenance technicians can take months when performed manually. This means that once a failure does occur, the backed up data is already old, resulting in more time being required before production lines can be restored.
 With this new product (Model: CPSA-PCB100), the latest backups can be retrieved automatically with ease, reducing maintenance technician man-hours by ensuring that backups are performed on schedule and facilitating preventive maintenance.
