Causes and Fixes
The 'TCSEGPA23F14F Profibus Gateway' does not recognize the slave device if it is replaced.  The slave device is recognized
only after power cycling of the 'TCSEGPA23F14F Profibus Gateway'.

This works as designed.  After swapping out the slave device, the user must reconnect to the 'TCSEGPA23F14F Profibus Gateway'
with Unity and transfer the configuration to the 'TCSEGPA23F14F Profibus Gateway' again using 'Store Data to Device' from the
DTM Browser.  The reason is because the Profibus slave device stores the configuration related information for the slave device to
recognize the 'TCSEGPA23F14F Profibus Gateway'.  This information is stored in the FEPROM on the slave device.  The
'TCSEGPA23F14F Profibus Gateway' stores this information to the FEPROM during the 'Store Data to Device' from the DTM Browser' procedure.
