  • RMX-4101

Issue Details

I have set up my multi power supply system up according to the direction on page 80 of the manual. However, I still can't communicate to my daisy chained devices using the RMX driver.

Solution

Be sure to check the following items:
  • All daisy-chained power suppliesĀ must be connected through RS485. Only the master power supply can be connected through LAN, USB, RS232 or RS485 to the controller.
  • All power supplies must have a unique address.
  • You can only daisy chain up to 31 units.
  • Ensure that upstream power supply has the linking cable connected to the Out port and the downstream power supply has the linking cable connected to the IN port. In the image below, 6 is the Remote Serial OUT connector and 7 is the Remote Serial IN connector.
