The customer’s CPU battery failure caused the PLC to lose its program. The customer did not have a digital backup of the program. The production line was down, and there was nobody onsite capable to reprogram the PLC. Now what?

Our Solution:

I-IDM techs reconstructed the original PLC program from the customer’s long-ago archived paper copy. The program had been modified in the years since the PLC was installed, so the customer retained us to help update the program to its status prior to the crash.

The Result:

The production line was back up and running in less than 24 hours. With the PLC now functional, digital backups of the PLC program were provided to the customer and a copy was confidentially archived offsite at Innovative-IDM for the customer’s potential future needs.
