How can I transfer log data when replacing a control module type?
I have 800xA SV4.1, AC800M, with IM's for history. I am replacing a control module type in Control BuilderM with one that has updated features. I want all of the history to be transferred to the new type. How can I accomplish this?
For example: I have and analog input type, "AIN," and I want to replace it with a new type, "NewAIN." I also want all of the history that is associated with the old AIN type to transfer to the NewAIN type. So that when I trend the NewAIN type I see all of the data from the old AIN type.
Replace only work inside Control Builder M; in the aspect system the old object will be deleted and along with it the log aspects and all logged data.
Some years ago ABB in Norway developed an informal/inofficial tool called IMLogDataCarrier that can extract log data and later inject it back to the new log(s). Documentation exist, but support is not available.
If you send me an email I can send you the tool and a brief overview.
