Just fired up my first EPIC controller and configured PAC Display to interface to it. Found some (not so…) interesting things and it’s kinda becoming a bit of an issue.
A - PAC Display will not read I/O directly from the PR1. I had to disable the option ‘Read tags directly from these I/O Units’ for it to show any physical point data. Variables were fine it was only the I/O
B - Cannot write from PAC display to a PID output. I have manual overrides for users to fault find and one thing is to have the ability to put a pid into manual (works from PAC Display) and to change the output. The logs show this:
Digital outputs seem to be OK, can write directly to them.
Am I missing something here?? Is there a secret hidden option somewhere that allows direct access to the I/O?
