Versions Affected:

All versions through R9.3d
Problem is fixed in version: R9.3e

Resolved In Version:

Problem is fixed in version: R9.3e


Symptoms:

The analog and digital I/O points on an Ethernet-based I/O unit return incorrect data values, even though from PAC Control debug mode, communication to the I/O unit is enabled and no errors are reported. Digital output points (on 4-channel digital output modules) cannot be turned on or off. Using PAC Manager to inspect the I/O unit’s point configuration indicates all digital points are inputs and analog points are set to default configuration and scaling, even though other selections had been previously configured. Disabling and re-enabling communication to the I/O unit or stopping and starting the strategy does not correct the issue.

Workaround:

As part of commissioning a project, after the I/O has been configured, use PAC Manager to store each I/O unit’s configuration to flash by selecting, Tools > Inspect, Status Write > Store configuration to flash. By doing so, the I/O configuration resides on the I/O unit and is available should the unit reset or have power cycled to it.

Resolution:
