I recently purchased a Bridgeport with a Fanuc 11M control. I'll be headed over this week to pick it up. I'm not familiar with Fanuc, but I am familiar with computers and machine PLC controllers.
From what I have read through here on the boards, it looks like a good idea to record or backup all of the config parameters just in case the worst happens during the equipment move.
Does this have to be manually, by writing them down? Or can I download configuration files from the 11M control system? How is this done and what should I bring with me in terms of serial cables, comm software and so on?
