Hi, I'm writing an application involving 1 master and 9 slave controllers - all Unitronics. The master PLC is a V1210. One of the slaves is also a V1210. The remaining 8 slaves are V130s. All i'm trying to do is sequentially read 1 coil from each of the slave PLCs. I know that this should be ridiculously easy... ...However, I'm finding that the "Function in Progress" bit gets stuck on after the master only attempting to read from 2 of the slaves. I've tried using timers of 100ms - probably excessive - after each Modbus Read Coils function block. Also, just to mention, I don't have all 9 slave controllers with me for testing - I've got 2. Is Modbus good at handling when it can't get thru to a particular node and just moving on to attempt the next one? Any help much appreciated, James
