Channel Error Timeout and port locked

Recommended Posts

Hi Guru,

 

I am currently working on the Murphy 467 Controller to achieve multiple scheduling for my pumps.

Controller: https://www.fwmurphy.com/uploaded/documents/pdfs/obsolete/00-02-0672.pdf

I am getting the following error when I try to run the scheduling part.

Timeout and Port locked error are throwing up in my log.

I am currently a new DaqFactory user.

Let me know if I can assist you with any other information.

 

Thanks!

Timeout means your device isn't responding to DAQFactory queries.  The port locked is just a side effect of that error.  You need to be plugged into either Port 1 or Port 2 of the device.  Modbus ID (D# in DAQFactory) is most likely 1 unless you changed from the factory setting.  I did not see any other information in the manual attached.  You'll need to figure out the comm port settings.  9600, 8, e, 1 is the default for Modbus, but your device could be anything.  You'll also need a register map, otherwise you are shooting in the dark, and given the Timeout errors, you are missing every shot.

Thank you for the response.

Yes the comm port setting is 9600,8,e, 1.

As you said the problem is the device isn't responding, I'll look into it!

Also, Does ModbusRTU 0010 mean device# 10 and ModbusRTU 0013 mean device# 13?

Thanks again!

No, those are just DAQFactory error codes.  It makes it easier to do error handling if you choose to have script do something based on errors.

I do see Error Code Reference Starting at C1000 in my User Guide, is there any other document I can refer which contains all the DAQFactory error codes.

Thanks!

The C type errors codes are listed at the end of the help, but that list isn't all inclusive.  Device and protocol codes are typically in the section with the protocol if at all.
