If the read or write request fails, a message is displayed in the status message field giving an indication of the failure. Use this information to help diagnose communication problems. Error messages will include the Error Response Code returned from the target programmable controller where appropriate. Refer to the OMRON Host Link User's Manuals for complete error descriptions. Errors will indicate possible problems with data addresses, programmable controller routing tables, data ranges, etc.
Time-out errors may indicate an invalid programmable controller address, incorrect communication parameters settings, or communication port problems. The most common cause of time-out errors is an improperly constructed communication cable.
