Red Lion Datastation Modubus TCP Conectivity

Hey Guys,

Wondering if anybody has connected Ignition to a Red Lion Datastation via Modbus TCP successfully before?

Using a Modbus TCP driver I get Ignition cycling between “Connected” and “Disconnected”

Red Lion Network Protocol set to Modbus TCP/IP slave

No Doubt I am missing some settings somewhere??

Cheers for any pointers


Have you defined any tags yet? Cycling between connected and disconnected usually happens when the device closes the connection due to inactivity.

Many Thanks,

Apparently the tags I had Mapped in Ignition were not correctly lining up with the tag mapping through the Datastation to the PLC.
