    Exclamation Powermate Model E Problem

    Hello Everybody, i have a problem with a Fanuc powermate model E
    It is connected to Fanuc 16i-MA Controller, but we've lost the powermate's parameters. We have another machine with the same parameters, we want to save those parameter into a Flash Card, and then load those parameter to the other powermate.

    Does Somebody have a procedure to do that?

    Thank you in advance

    Should be a white button on the powermate that dumps the parameters and programs on the powermate on to a card. You should be able to press the button to download to the card, and press the button on the other one to upload. That was how it was explained to me at one time. Doesn't make much sense to me, but I know the button is how it is done. There is apparently a way to do it through the control and the mdi screen as well. Do you have a MDI/DLP unit to attach to it?

    Yes i have one MDI/DPL.
    I tried to download the parameters whit this method.
    1. Put the card
    2. Turn on the machine
    3. move the switch to the load position
    4 push the gray button

    but It nothing happens.

    Could you explain me your method?

    Thank you

    Download which way? From machine to card? Or card to machine? If machine to card I would guess you would want the switch on save. Anyway, you also need to do something in the menu that you get to by holding right two soft keys when powering on. I don't recall as I have only ever seen it done and I am missing some pieces. Apparently it is in the powermate manual.

    I could download parameters from card to Power Mate, but yesterday I had a problem with the MID/DPL, It didn't work anymore, i can't see the fanuc part number because the stick is illegible.
    Does anybody have some information about the MDI/DPL for Power Mate Model-E

    Thank you in advance
