Courtesy: Fanuc AmericaFanuc America's FASBacCNC (FOCAS Automation Solution Backup CNC) is a network-based backup solution for Fanuc CNCs. FASBacCNC is designed to prevent extended downtime as a result of the loss of critical files on the CNC following a hardware failure or operational mistake. It does this by automatically backing up the computer numerical control (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 from a remote location.

The FASConnect servers feature drag & drop navigation and individual files can be uploaded manually or multiple files from multiple CNCs across the network can be included in a configuration. Multiple configurations can also be combined into a single scheduled backup. Powerful and flexible scheduling allows automatic backup to be executed hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. Users may also execute schedules manually for immediate needs. Users receive email notifications relating to the scheduled backup status.
