I have enjoyed reading the posts on this site for some time now, and I am hoping that someone on here would be able to help me out with a problem. We have a small DeviceNet network consisting of a 1756-DNB (node00), two Wago scanners (nodes 03, and 04) and two identical MTS position transducers (nodes 02, and 05). The DNB card is in a rack along with a ControlLogix L71 controller. We have been experiencing random device net error alarms lately where a node would stop communicating and we would power down the system and reboot. The errors would then go away. The other day I decided to use the Networx for DeviceNet to find out what was going on when one of these errors popped up. I found that the device on node 05 was not present on the network. Since we had a spare identical sensor I decided I would address the sensor as node 05 and configure it using a spare DNB card and chassis we have. All went well until I installed the spare sensor into the system. At that point we had alarms pertaining to most of the device net devices. Scanning the network with the Networks software showed no device problems, all were present and communicating, but I could not get the alarms to reset. We tried rebooting the network, the sensor, and even the entire system with no luck. It wasn’t until I reinstalled the old sensor that we were able to get the alarms to clear. Since I have rambled on long enough I won’t bore you with the rest of the trip down this rabbit hole I went down, but what did I do wrong when trying to change this sensor? Is there a specific sequence of events that need to take place when replacing one, even if the sensors are identical? I am stumped, and we still have the potential of one of these sensors failing without having a clear idea about how to go about changing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
