Dear Ignition gurus
Version: 7.6.0 (b1875)
OS: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
I have just setup my first Ignition project talking to a mixture of Control/Compact/MicroLogix PLCs. Setting up the devices I have put the IP address as the host names and changed the timeout to 10000 for all controllers.
The Control/Compactlogix devices appear to connect fine. However, the 3 Micrologix 1100’s and one Micrologix 1400 suffer a connection error:
The error cycles between:
“Connecting: Determining Protocol”
“Disconnected: Determining Protocol”
The problem controllers are SH1,SH2,TW1,TP1 below are the expanded details on TP1 which is the ML1400:
All the ML PLCs have roughly the same error as above.
I am considering upgrading the firmwares of these PLCs in an attempt to rectify, as all of these PLCs are series A (old).
Before I start booking plant downtime, can you please cast your eyes over this error and offer advice?
