Greetings. I have an Automation Direct BRX PLC talking to an AB7318 in a new configuration. I was able to setup the communication between the two devices and the CANBUS. I perform a PING function from the PLC and it operates perfectly. I have five green LEDs and I have been able to read values in the PLC from the CANBUS. The Ethernet LED shows occasional communication and the CANBUS LEDs (5&6) are on steadily.
The problem that I have is that I cannot get LEDs 1&2 to show steady. They continuously flash, even though I am communicating. The diagnostic tool in the calibrator shows that the link is offline. I can’t figure out what the communicator is looking for so that I can see if it is available in the PLC.
One other item is just a question. Is there a way to view the contents of a memory address in the communicator? I am writing values to the memory locations and would love to verify the results.
Thank you for any ideas or help in answering these questions.
