IPS-400 / IPS-400-CE - User’s Guide
5.4. Save Configuration Parameters
The IPS offers two methods for saving parameters; Saving to Memory, and
Saving to an ASCII File.
Saving parameters to memory ensures that your user-deﬁned conﬁguration
will remain intact if power to the IPS is temporarily interrupted. After the
conﬁguration menus have been used to change parameters, the IPS will
prompt you to save parameters before exiting from command mode. At
this point, the IPS offers the options to Save parameters, continue without
saving, or revert to the previously saved parameters.
Saving Parameters to an ASCII ﬁle allows you to create a "backup" of your
currently deﬁned conﬁguration. As described in Section 7, this provides
quick recovery in the event that the unit is accidentally reset to default
parameters, and also allows you to copy parameters to other IPS units when
several units need to be conﬁgured with the same parameters.
• After new Parameters have been applied, the IPS will display
a "Save" prompt. In the Web Browser Interface, this prompt
appears when you leave the conﬁgurations menus. In the Text
Interface, the "Save" prompt appears when you disconnect
from the unit. At this point, you have the option of saving new
parameters to memory, continuing without saving, or reverting to
previously saved parameters.
• If parameters have not been saved, and if power to the IPS is
interrupted, newly deﬁned parameters will be lost. When power
is restored, the unit will then be conﬁgured with the previously
