    Default replacing battery

    I've read replies on how to change backup battery The important thing that is mentioned is to leave the power on. My problem is this. To access the battery in the QT10 lathe at my workplace,I need to withdraw the memory card with the onboard battery. Straight away I have removed the power, unless you include the battery's voltage as "power" and what if the battery is dead flat?

    How do I replace the battery without losing data?

    If this is an Mazak QT10, w/t2 control, There is an Super capacitor on board that will retain the parameters and programs for up to 30 min's

    The problem is the machines are very old and any documentation here is limited. Does anybody know how long I have to change the batteries once I take the old ones off the board? mazak model is VQC 20/40A
