ahoover Posted June 4, 2014 Report Share Posted June 4, 2014 Am using Red Lion display, model PAX2D, with an option card for RS232, and want use Modbus RTU to display values from a V350. I can get successful comm. by connecting RXD from display to RXD(pin 3) on V350, and TXD to TXD(pin 4) with no ground. As soon as common (pins 2 or 5 on V350) are connected to RS232 common on display, comm. halts. By wiring as above, I can read values from registers in the display, but they seem to be random numbers, not anywhere close to what they should be. For instance when reading register 40483(display baud rate), a value of 8960 is returned no matter what the baud rate is actually set at, and I would be expecting to see a number from 0 to 5 for the 5 baud rates available on the display.

Appreciate any help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
