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
I have an application where I need to have one V130 PLC communicate to three V120 PLCs and read a bunch of MI registers. I have the V120 systems already supporting Modbus comms over RS485. So, I setup the V130 to be a Modbus Master and talk to all three Modbus slaves. I setup the Com port for RS485 with the appropriate properties. Then I have a RHR command to read from the first PLC. And this works just fine. I can read the Modbus registers from PLC1. Then I have two more nets with an RHR command to read from PLC 2 and PLC 3, but these nets don't seem to execute at all. What am I doing wrong
