I get the following message when trying to connect with PC to EZ8 controller using EZ8MSI interface: “System did not respond. Cannot detect baud rate setting”.
-Baud rate set to 115200
– ELKRP2 V. 2.0.38
Tried to connect with terminal program (Putty, Serial port monitor) and nothing goes out from EZ8MSI interface. May I assume the interface needs to be replaced or RP code was changed? are there any other diagnose testing i could perform so to determine exactly what is going on? Thanks
Try updating ElkRP2 to version 2.0.40 and under Windows Device Manager, Ports (COM&LPT) what COM Port Number has Windows assigned to your USB to RS232 Cable? Once found right click, click Properties to make sure the Baud Rate or Port Speed is 115200. In ElkRP2 under Setup, Communication, Direct Connect is the same COM Port Number listed? If so select and click OK — Click the Connection Icon, On Site Local and select the first option in the list…
