I have 2 pieces of manufacturing equipment that are using a MELSEC FX3U – 16M and a MELSEC FX2N – 12MR for their control.
Currently do not have a backup of the program uploaded to the PLC and would like to have one, just in case of hardware failure of some description
I understand I need to connect a computer to it through the communication port, I have the specific serial to usb cable.
I would like to know what software I need and the process of downloading the program from the PLC and if there are any dangers by doing this.
Thanks in advance
