PV+ 2711P-RDT15C can't communicate to 2 CLX processors

7 posts in this topic

details:

panelview (2711P-RDT15C) connected to "switch A" (ntron p/n: F-716TX)

"processor A " (1756-L62) is connected to "switch A"

"processor B" (1756-L73S) is connected to "switch B" (ntron p/n: F-716TX)

"switch B" is connected to "switch A"

I'm trying to use a single panelview to communicate to 2 separate PLC processors (separate chassis). When I go to add the shortcut in factory talk I find the "processor B". When I connect my laptop to 
"switch A" I can see every thing in RSlinxs. 

Any one experience this issue or know how to make this setup work?

Maybe there's a switch setting that is not allowing RSlinxs enterprise in the PV to see both processors?

As Alan asked, what's the logic module part number? If the logic module is a PV+6 Compact or PV+7 Standard, for example, it will only connect to a single PLC.

PV+6.

we tried plugging the PV directly to an EN2T on the 72S chassis and cant see the processor in factory talk. It looks like there is another issue with our setup.

Ok, so that looks like a PV+6, not a Compact, so it should talk to multiple PLCs at the same time. Can you post a screenshot of your communications shortcut?

Fixed:

I was remotely assisting colleagues on this matter when it first came up. When I was able to  get hands on with the setup, I found out that the communications were not getting updated when the PV program was downloaded... needless to say the setup is working now. I appreciate every ones support with this thread.

Aha, that's gotten me before too. Good catch, and thanks for following up!
