Network Based Backup Solution for CNC Files

FASBacCNC from FANUC America is a network based backup solution for CNC files.

FANUC America Corporation - FANUC CNC offers FASBacCNC (FOCAS Automation Solution Backup CNC), a network based backup solution for FANUC CNCs. According to the company, FASBacCNC eliminates the risk of one of the most common and expensive service interventions - extended downtime as a result of the loss of critical files on the CNC following a hardware failure or operational mistake.

FASBacCNC automatically backs up the CNC files that have been created and customized by the machine tool builder or end user to a remote network server. Files backed up can include CNC parameters, PMC ladder and parameters, custom macros and variables, part programs, tool offsets and workpiece coordinate system offsets.

FASBacCNC is a front end application that interfaces with FANUC's FASConnect server for file browsing, scheduling and backup operations for FOCAS enabled FANUC CNCs. FASBacCNC can work with multiple FASConnect servers across an entire network, so that files from a single machine, work cell, factory or even multiple factories can be combined into a single configuration for backup scheduling. FASBacCNC can be used on any personal computer on the network located out in the factory, back in an office or in a remote location.

Users browse their FASConnect servers with drag and drop navigation. Individual files can be uploaded manually or multiple files from multiple CNCs across the network can be included in a configuration. Multiple configurations can then be combined into a single scheduled backup. Flexible scheduling allows automatic backup to be executed hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. Users may also execute schedules manually for immediate needs. Users receive e-mail notifications relating to the scheduled backup status.

FASBacCNC is the latest addition to the FAS (FOCAS Automation Solution) lineup. The complete FAS (FOCAS Automation Solution) suite includes: FASBacCNC, a user interface for FASConnect that allows browsing of all FASConnect servers and backup data either manually or on a scheduled basis; FASConnect, a Windows service that allows access and management of text data from all FOCAS enabled CNCs across a network; FASOPC, an OPC 3.0 compliant server designed for easy retrieval of machining data from all FOCAS enabled CNCs.
