@KarstenK, does this version have drive backup and restore utilites that can be access through a plc application?

Drive Connect App 1.16 has parameter restore utility. Parameter backup utility is planned in Drive Connect App 1.18.

Device backup and restore including firmware is not planned.

User documentation for DCA 1.18 will be published after the release last week of November. Parameter backup/restore implementation procedure for client application (e.g, ctrlX DRIVE engineering, PLC application etc) explained in user document. 

We don't have PLC FBs developed for backup/restore over DCA.

Hi,

There is a new release of the Drive Connect app - currently V1.18 - but it is not available for download yet - BTW: @CodeShepherd : do you think it can be put on the download room?

But finally we have a very nice docu for DrivE connect app- which has many nice functionalities - e.g. like adding drives from other subnest via REST/API - please see here

Re: DRIVE connect app 1.16?

Thank you for this documentation @Kookoolinoo. I am wondering if you have some examples. In some ways the documentation is not clear. 

@CodeShepherd, is there a way to perform this operation from the PLC application without having to do DL_Read/WriteNode? Where is the data actually being stored? Can it be removed from the controller?

Re: DRIVE connect app 1.16?

@aFouraker I guess you mean parameter backup/restore with "this operation"? There is a function in preparation to do this automatically for all parameter coming up with the 1.12 version of the CriveConnect app.

The read data will be stored wherever you put it to. you can use PLC libraries to send them where ever you like. Our standard file handling mechanism is to store the file in the active configuration (app data folder) in the ctrlX CORE and then use a WebDAV client to get it from there. See also this topic.

Like mentioned above, there are no prebuild function blocks for the PLC available up to now. @Kookoolinoo correct me if I am wrong or add another actual status for them.
