Backup and Restore a Program on TP 270 6″

Last week, I must change the old Siemens TP 270 6″ because of its touch screen leak. You know I’ve changed this TP twice in last 4 years. I don’t know why the touch is easy to leak. Better ask to Siemens..

Anyway, in this case I don’t have any backup program of this TP. So we need a full backup program from old TP then restore to the new one.

I used WinCC Flexible 2005 but of course you can use the new version, Win CC Flexible 2008.  And for communicate I used RS 232 cross connection between COM1 on PC and RS232 port on TP.

First we need to configured Communication Setting, via Project Menu >> Transfer >> Communication Setting

Set Device type to TP270 and Mode to Serial, For port I use COM 1 and baudrate 11520.

First connect the old TP, and open Backup Windows. Choose Complete Backup and choose dir to save the file  click OK. It takes about 1 hour.

To Restore

Connect the new TP,  open Resore Windows. Choose the back up file. Than Click OK.

    This is nice, but how the solvents at MPI do that? Because not every PC has been with RS232.

      Dear levelko,
      All PC has USB port, you can use USB to RS232 converter. There are many brands available in the market.
