Hi - we have added this to the feature request list. I don't have a time line for development right now, but I certainly can see the need @SoCold, thanks for raising the issue!
(and thanks to @Joe Tauser for tagging me )
In info mode -> serial -> monitor I can read card numbers in ASCII but I have no idea how to get to that data on HMI. How can I get to it in ladder program? I would like to create a program that read card numbers and if card number = some exact number then it would set some memory bit to 1 for few seconds. Please help.
Serial port properties are: PCOM, RS232, 9600, 8, n, 1, 9984 us, card numbers are shown on Rx.
Try shifting the AI4 connections onto the newly installed AI8 ones, and see what happens. If it turns out the 4s then blow, and the changed around 8s don't, it must be something in that area of the wiring giving rise to conditions that the module doesn't like.
I'd also arrange for the failed 8s to go back to the Creators for them to check out the failure(s). This might also point you in the right direction, or discover something more fundamental.
