From the [Project] menu, point to [System Settings], and click the FTP server.
Click [New] to open the [FTP Server] dialog box. Enter the FTP server information (registry number, IP address, password, and so on) to save the movie file. Click [OK] to exit the FTP server registration.
From the [Project] menu, point to [System Settings], and click [Video/Movie].
Select [Video Input] and [Record Size].
Click the [Record FTP] tab and select the [Record to FTP] check box.
In [FTP Server], select [Direct] then select the registration number of the FTP server registered in step 2.
In [File Size], set the maximum file size for the video.
Video that exceeds the specified file size is automatically saved in the next file. The file is created with the file name based on the time stamp (year, month, date, hours, minutes, and seconds when the file size was exceeded.).
In the [User Set String] area, select [Direct] and enter two single-byte characters (for example, MC). This string is the folder name and the first two characters of the file name for the saved movie.
The movie is saved with the file name beginning with the user-defined string (maximum two characters) + time stamp + file extension (.SDX).
(For example, if a folder and file are saved at 15:23'46" on May 27, 2006, the file name will be "MC060527_152346.SDX".)
If [Indirect] is selected, you must specify the server registry number with the PLC before saving on the FTP server. To specify the number indirectly, use three words from the specified address.
If you do not specify a string in the [User Set String] field, the folder is named "NONAME".
[Timeout] field, enter how much time is spent trying to connect to the FTP server (for example, 60 seconds).
In [Control Word Address], specify a word address that controls when to start saving.
The settings for saving movies to an FTP server is now complete.
The video signal can be displayed while it is being recorded.
Movie files cannot be played while a video signal is being recorded.
