By Jack Day on 1 July, – I tested with two timers. Tested Hardware Connections Several hardware connections have been tested by ProSoft Technology or have been customer field tested. No problem and I was able to see this PLC as node 1. Posted 18 Nov

If you ever see this cancel!!

We also have an 8 point analog NI8. Devices commonly supporting the protocol include Rockwell Automation PLCs and power monitoring equipment, as well as d1 other third party devices.

Second how can I get a second Slave processor into this system. When you downloaded the programe that caused you to lose communications, did you see a warning that said you where about to lose communications?

Gunasekaran on 2 July, – That makes for plenty of serial traffic for you to determine connectivity, and you will have the Slave Active bits in the Master’s DF1 polling status file dff1 determine if and when the slave nodes are connected to the network.

Configure a Standard Polling List with just those two nodes in it. The ports on the DF1 module can be individually configured as Master ports.

Don’t change the SLC port settings unless you have the proper cable to match, or you’ll find yourself draining the memory capacitor to get back online. I was able to communicate bi-directional.

Scripting must be enabled to use this site.

Just pulling the battery takes too long; you also need to short out the hold-up capacitor. You can improve performance by using hardware handshaking to tell the radio when to stop transmitting and start listening, or by the radio being aware of the protocol that is being used the DF1 Full Duplex and Half Duplex settings so it knows when it’s seen the end-of-packet data.

I now have to figure out how to make this work with two slaves. Error codes available on an individual command basis. Register a new account. Please read this important info!!!

Has any one used these serial radio’s??? You don’t have to be a protocol guru, just keep your eyes and ears open. Fortune No modern woman with a grain of sense ever sends little notes to an unmarried man — not until she is married, anyway.


There is a publication from Rockwell called the “SCADA System Application Guide”, which describes connectivity and configuration for a wide variety of maste and controllers.

I did not write the sample ladder, for clarification please review the manual that Ken mentions in this Topic.

DF1 Communication – Allen Bradley –

Visit panic mode’s homepage! Use these settings in your programe. You’ll also need to put the half-duplex address of the SLC I think you said it’s Node 1 in the polled slave list for the half-duplex master. If you’re not already a member, consider joining. In addition, a slave status list is maintained per active master port Polling of Command List: You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. November 19th, If anyone can give some advice it would be greatly appreciated.

DF1 Half Duplex Comms. After reading through your example I found that Standard Mode Polling only reads from each processor.
