Hello All! I have a sneaky issue that I really need some help with. We have a DL405 PLC and a EA9-T12CL HMI. The PLC was programmed with a Fault Code tag - V2000 and it is filled with values from K1-K600. The HMI has a Lookup Text that uses these codes and translates them to the proper error message - or should. However, it doesn't! For instance, Error Code 99 in the PLC is for one error, but the error code that the HMI displays is 153. A coworker pointed out that 99 in Hex -> 153 in Decimal. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? How do I check data type in Directsoft 6, or can I do it all with C-more? I'm really an Allen Bradley guy trying to maintain an old Automation Direct PLC. TIA!!
