  • PLM failure?

    Mark,
    I am getting "Transmit failed to device (various) after 4 tries" messages, about a dozen or so a day. I went back in the log and saw they started August 10. No added equipment, etc has been added during that time. No other changes that I can think of. I did a ' a reset and reprogram on the interface' today but that didn't help. the PLM is firmware 9E, h/w ver 2.0.
    The unit is about 3-4 years old, I think. I'm thinking its time for a new one?

    the problem could also be some device flooding the network and preventing the PLM from transmitting. you could try turning off breakers one at a time and see if the issue stops. this would help identify where the noise is coming from. for light switches, you can pull the set btn to disable it.

      ok, I'll try that first, thanks, and I suppose it could also be rf devices?

        Yes, an RF device could be the cause. don't rule anything out

          one last question: is there anything I can do from the plm to speed up the process of elimination, such as initiate polling on all devices?
