I downloaded the 7.8 Beta release and migrated a project from 7.7.
Just wanted to let the developers know there is an issue with string array in V24 of the ControlLogix Driver. I have a STRING and it reads fine if the Tags have no data in the array. If I put any data in any string it will go to an Unknown state.
Although I can put data in STRING and it is fine.
And if I leave data in STRING and putting data in STRING in the PLC - the data actually shows up in STRING in Ignition, so there is an offset issue. But if I clear STRING the whole array goes to an unknown state again.
Thanks for the report.
Just to sanity check and clarify things: you should be seeing the exact same behavior in 7.7 as well. If that’s not the case something goofy is going on here…
You might be correct -but it did work fine in the 7.7 version of this project when were talking with a L32E V19 - This new project will be using 7.8 and V24.
I don’t have a way to test that in house as our only processor is the newer L33ER
Ok, thanks, I’ll look into it.
Can this be moved into the 7.8 forum - Hopefully this gets resolved fairly soon.
I’ve already fixed it, you’ll be able to get it on Monday when we release 7.8.0-rc2
