TAC Menta Online Device DI block shows Offline for I/O modules with numerical names

Issue

  • TAC Menta Online Device DI block shows "Offline" for I/O modules with numerical names
  • The DI block in TAC Menta has a functionality "device offline", when the device name starts with a number (e.g. 2), the device online function doesn't work as supposed.
  • Device online flag is tripped, (or actually set to 0) but will never be reset when device is online again.

Environment

  • Xenta Programmable
  • Xenta 280, 281, 282, 283, 300, 301, 302, 401, 401:B
  • I/O modules

Cause

The reason that this functionality doesn't work is because if the device address starts with a number it's considered to be an I/O module.

Resolution

Rename the I/O module devices to a name that does not start with a number.
