A PowerLogic device is experiencing communications problems and will require troubleshooting.
- If using an EGX or ECC card
Ping the EGX/ECC card IP address
If unable to ping: How to determine the IP address
If able to ping: Access the Webpage and write down the communication parameters (Baud rate, parity).
- Check the baud rate and parity on the serial device and make sure it matches the settings on the gateway
- Check device list on the webpage and make sure that the device that is not communicating is in the list with the correct Device ID
- Check DIP switches on the EGX/ECC card (see EGX/ECC installation manual)
