View Full Version : FX 16 Remote Display Problem
05-03-2008, 03:23 PM
I have an FX 16 with onboard display. I am trying to add a remote display. I have it hooked up to the remote display terminals but it just says device offline and address 1. I tried changing addresses and re-downloading the configuration but it doesn't work. I also noticed that it says RT+ RT- and RT Com so I tried hooking it to the local bus. It still doesn't work. any ideas anyone??

only onboard display will work if you have it on controller.
You can remove it then try to connect remote dispay everything will be ok

That is not what johnson is saying. I have a call in and they are trying to find the answer.

I just read the manual and it says you can have the onboard and up to 2 remote displays on an fx16

Do you have any configured data on display string or value?

Can you check that the MUI version is aligned with FX FW version and your tool version?

Johnson called back today and told me after the download to cycle power. it works like a charm now.
