Reload error: Type not valid for this IO channel

Issue

Infinity controller error: Type not valid for this IO channel

ElecType mismatch between what is in the database and the field controller hardware.

An example of this problem would be offline creating a voltage output on a DO-4. It will save to the DB since it is a valid InfinityInput configuration. But when you try to do a Send to Controller the controller knows that point type is not valid on that IOU module.

Environment

Continuum

Cause

This can happen when an object is created offline or imported into Continuum. The database error checking is less strict than when creating the object online.

Resolution

  1. Go into offline editing
  2. Check the point configuration
  3. If it does not match the field hardware, then correct it, save it, go to online mode and reload.
