Question

Will a CS1-series Programmable Controller's program be lost if its backup battery is not replaced after its 5-year service life has expired?

Answer

The program will not be lost as long as the Programmable Controller's power supply does not go OFF.

The battery service life is 5 years, so replace the battery every 5 years to prevent problems such as electrolyte leakage.
