How to export the parameters and configuration information of an ESCON?
If you want to ...
- ... copy the configuration of an ESCON to another one,
- ... save the configuration as part of your machine's or system's documentation,
- ... provide the configuration file as part of information required by support,
this can be done easily by the "File / Upload Parameters" menu item of ESCON Studio.
The menu item "File / Upload Parameters" exports the so-called *.edc configuration file of the ESCON controller into a PC file. This file can be downloaded later on by "File / Download Parameters" to another ESCON controller if this is required.
The *.edc configuration file holds a lot of information in case of a request for support. There is information about the concrete controller, the firmware version, and the actual values of all parameters present in this file. It is quite more efficient and provides a more comprehensive view to export the file instead of writing down or making screenshots of configuration settings.
The *.edc file is a perfect solution to be in use as part of a machine's or system's documentation and helps a lot in case of a request for support.
Just click on the "File / Upload Parameters" menu item to upload the ESCON configuration into a file. The directory and file name can be selected by the file dialog.
