No communication with PCD, data quality 'Bad, Comm Failure'

FAQ #100215

There is a an item called "Set station active" in the communication buffer which default value is 0. This causes the OPC server to disable the connection to the concerned PCD(s). The result is a communication quality "Bad, Comm Failure".


to avoid this problem

  • either disabel the communicatino buffer (checkbox on the staion tab of the OPC server configuration, see below)

  • or work with the "Set Station Active" item. At least set it to "1" by default. You have to do this for every station separately since every station has its own communication buffer.
