Automatic Backup Tool for all S7 PLCs

Post by lex1993 » Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:34 am


At my firm we have great amount of different S7 PLCs (300, 400, 1200, 1500..) and we would like to perform automatic backups of all PLCs at specific time intervals. Does any of you know any Automatic Backup Tool that is capable of performing such action.

Actually I found an almost perfect tool for this: (and I heard it does a good job). The only problem is that it only works for S7-300 and S7-400 PLCs and not on 1200 and 1500.

Also, if there is another way of performing automatic backup, I am open to any suggestions! Every information is helpful.

Thank you in advance for all your answeres.

TIA Portal has officially built-in this function. But I did not use it yet, do a test before using on-site.

There are more PLCs 200 version, S5, M7, panel3 OP3, OP7 (many version).
And many-many PLCs and Panels other firms.
