I have a HMS-EN2MB-R linking device I am trying to use between a TechMan cobot and an AllenBradley CompactLogix PLC. Last week, I was able to configure the gateway through Studio 5000 and the HMS add-on, but wasn’t having any luck reading and writing bits to the cobot. This morning, I removed the linking device from my ethernet tree in the PLC and was going to re-do the setup procedure. Since then, I have been unable to configure the device within Studio 5000 or connect to the web client.
I do know the linking devices IP address (192.168.1.101), but I can’t see the device through the HMS IPConfig tool. I can’t connect to the web client either (I get an HTTP Error 400). Connecting via USB, I can see the device through my device manager tree, but can’t connect as it can’t find drivers to install. I have verified there are no IP address conflicts, and have tried multiple PCs to ensure it wasn’t with any one specific machine. If I add the linking device in the PLCs module tree (since I know the IP address) I get a fault for Code16#0127 Connection Request Fail: Invalid Output Size.
I was hoping to get some help getting connected with this device again, whether it be factory resetting the device and starting over, or some other method that I haven’t tried. Thank you for your assistance.
