Resolution
For communication through a serial gateway we do not recommend the use of IO Scanner service.
The IO Scanner service is designed for direct Ethernet communication.
When communicating through a Ethernet to serial gateway it is critical to properly set your Repetitive rate slow enough to account for the slow serial response.
In addition, you will need additional logic to properly handle the Device Control Block bits to control the IO Scanner entries one at a time.
