Can I issue a command to a drive from a communication network that will cause it to save its program into the attached keypad?

Published date: 13 November 2018

Issue:
Customer is an OEM that is trying to automate their process to program our drives in their equipment.  They want to use a PLC to program the drive and then issue a command from the PLC that will cause the drive to save a backup copy of its program into the attached keypad.

Product Line:
All Altivar products.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers.

Cause:
No instructions available for this feature.

Resolution:
This is not possible on any drive via any serial communication network.  For the drives that have the feature allowing a backup copy of the program to be stored in the attached keypad, the command to initiate the save function must be triggered manually from the keypad itself.
