Is it possible to use a 16 DI/O module on the base addresse 240?

FAQ #101671

The device configurator gives an error when a card with 16 digital inputs or outputs is configured on base address 240 because the address 255 is reserved for the hardware watchdog!


Can I use the I/O card on this slot?
Whether the media mapping is configured or not, it is possible to put a 16 I/O card on address 240. The only condition is that the last I/O of the card (address 255) isn't used! The message "On the defined module, the last input/output with address 255 cannot be used." can be ignored for digital I/O modules (but not for analogue I/O modules)

It is planned to change the error message of the device configurator.
