I need to download some job and system files from a DX200 controller to a computer on the network during production. I was going to use the FTP Function to do this but I saw this warning in the manual:
Note: Other transmission processing may not be performed during an FTP communication processing.
The communication functions of DX200 (Ethernet function, FTP function,
Ethernet server function, etc.) cannot perform simultaneous parallel
processing. Although pseudo multiplex communication can normally be
performed by time division, the FTP function often occupies the
communication band and, therefore, other communication processing
may be forced to wait for a long time or communication time-out may
occur. When building your system, design it to allow for occurrence of
waiting for other communication processing due to the FTP function.
It sounds like this could interfere with the robot communicating with the PLC and negatively affecting production?
Do you know a production safe method of getting these files from the controller?
