About this task

If the FX30E/FX60E ever gets into an erroneous condition where you cannot fix a station, you can restore a previously backed up station by using the Restore Backed Up Station menu item under the Tools menu.


  1. Run the FX Workbench application.
  2. On the File Menu, click Open Remote Station. When prompted, enter the Remote Site Address (for example,, Remote Platform User Name, and Remote Password. Click OK. When the Authentication dialog box appears, enter the Station User Name, Password (optional), and click OK.
  3. On the Tools menu, click Restore Backed Up Station. In the Restore Backed Up Station dialog box, enter the Remote Site IP Address, Remote Username, Remote Password, and select the .dist (station backup) file. Click OK. The FX30E/FX60E reboots automatically.
    Note: You can back up a station by using the Backup Station menu item from the station node's popup menu in the Navigation Tree. We recommend that you back up a station daily to minimize the chance of information loss.
