An AS has failed and there is no backup. Can the SD card from the broken AS be used in a new AS
EcoStruxure Building Operation
AS has failed without any backup and there is a need to get the information to the new AS
The SD card in each AS is encoded for that specific AS. The information on the SD card can only be read by that AS.
AS's are now replaced by the AS-P, however if an AS can be obtained, then a backup can be recovered as follows:
It is possible to put the SD card from the damaged AS into a non damaged AS and do a backup. Then the backup can be restored into a new AS-P. The AS-P does not use a SD card.
Important note: The version of the bad AS / SD card needs to match the donor AS used to make the backup.
To remove the memory card push the metal retainer in towards the centre of the PCB
The metal retainer will disengage its locking catches
The metal retainer is hinged and can then be opened
The memory card can then be lifted out for replacement
Replacement is the reverse of the removal process.
