A screenshot can be taken from the remote keypad by pressing both the F1 and F4 keys at the same time.
To upload the keypad screenshot, use the mini USB port on the keypad to connect to the PC.
See the attached file below.
The USB port has 2 main functions:
  • Download screenshot files
  • Upload program files (e.g. languages)
On the PC, open up the Keypad Folder and go to the Print Screen folder (labeled PRTSCR).
Transfer the file to a PC folder.

It is not possible to connect both a Computer and the Drive to the keypad at the same time.
