Here is my problem (pulling my hair out for a few days now). I have a solar inverter device (modbus ID 6) that has a modbus output via 2wire RS485 that is routed to a Modbus Gateway Device (2 Ports and Ethernet).
I have created the device connection (Vlinx Modbus Gateway) in Ignition and it is connected fine with no issues. I have created tags and all of them have “Bad” quality.
The configuration for Vlinx gateway to the Solar Inverter has the correct settings and I have given priority to device “6” for the time being.
I have tried to manually reference the data source [pvinverter]6.HR2 and integer type.
device connection > Modbus ID > 40002 int16 holding register
I have also tried using ignition mapping.
PV > 40002 - 40002 > no stack > 6 > 002
It feels like I have literally tried everything. VLinx is indicating good connection to Solar Inverter as well.
Could a firmware update in Vlimx maybe fix this? Was originally run in an XP machine years ago.
