D. MEMORY CARD OPERATOR’S
1 Flash ATA cards are formatted using a Quick Format (by
clearing the file allocation table and the route directory in the
root directory). Use a PC to format them.
2 The first to 64th files in the root directory on the memory card
can be displayed and selected.
3 On the flash memory card, no file can be erased individually.
All files on the card must be erased in a batch.
So, it is impossible to:
S Delete existing files.
S Overwrite a file to a file having the same name.
4 When writing to a flash memory card, the last 128 KB on the
flash memory card are used as a buffer area. So, the usable
capacity of the flash memory card is decreased by 128 KB.
5 On the memory card, files only in the root directory area can
be displayed, read, and written. No subdirectory area can
be used. In addition, the name of each file on the memory
card can consist of up to 8 alphanumeric characters in
uppercase. Its extension can use up to 3 characters.
6 The read/write time varies depending on the type of memory
card and the way how it is used.
7 Files on the memory card can be erased by incorrect
operation. So, make a backup copy of them using a PC if
they are necessary.
The functions that can conventionally be used with the SRAM and flash
memory cards can be used also with the flash ATA card.
S Input/output with the PMC I/O screen
S Input/output of maintenance information and periodic maintenance
S Parameter input/output by Power Mate CNC Manager
Refer to the applicable operation manual for detailed descriptions of the
input/output function specification.
It is impossible to use the flash ATA card with the memory
card access function of C executor applications.
