Known Issues

  • EcoStruxure Power Commission software version 2.24.1 does not use virtual server ID to access Modbus Serial devices.

    When a virtual server ID different from the physical Modbus address / server ID is allocated to a Modbus Serial device, EcoStruxure Power Commission software version 2.24.1 uses the physical Modbus address / server ID to access the Modbus Serial device.

    To avoid any issue during commissioning of Modbus Serial devices in EcoStruxure Power Commission software, ensure that the physical Modbus address / server ID and the virtual server ID of each downstream Modbus device under the Panel Server gateway are unique and have not been previously assigned as a physical Modbus address or virtual server ID to any wireless, Modbus Serial, or Modbus TCP/IP device.

    To solve this issue, proceed as follows:

    • Option 1 - Change the physical Modbus address of the device on the Modbus Serial network as follows:

      1. Set the physical Modbus address of the device to a value not assigned as virtual server ID to any other wireless, Modbus Serial, or Modbus TCP/IP device.

      2. Login to the Panel Server webpages and update accordingly the physical Modbus address / server ID of the device in the Panel Server .

    • Option 2 - Change the virtual server ID of the device in the Panel Server as follows:

      Login to the Panel Server webpages and change the virtual server ID of the device to a value different from the physical Modbus address / server ID of any other device on the Modbus Serial network.

  • Webpages freeze when several Modbus Serial devices are missing.

    When several Modbus Serial devices are being disconnected (4 devices or more) at the same time, the Panel Server webpages can become frozen while the Panel Server is still attempting to communicate with the missing devices.

    Webpages operation recovers:

    • When, after several retries, the Panel Server detects that the devices are disconnected.

    • After reconnecting the missing devices.

  • Limitations on logging and alarming.

    The number of data points that can be logged and the number of alarms that can configured to trigger an email is limited according to the following rule:

    Number of data points + (20 x Number of alarms) ≤ 1000

    For Modbus Serial and Modbus TCP/IP, whatever the number of alarms configured for a single device, it counts for 2 alarms in the above formula.

    Example: A Panel Server system with:

    • 5 PowerTag with 20 data points and 2 alarms

    • 3 ComPacT NSX with 20 data points and 5 alarms

      The total number of data points is equal to 5 x 20 + 3 x 20 + 20 x (5 x 2 + 3 x 2) = 480.

    Respect the above limitation to help avoid leading to degraded operation such as missing measurement acquisition and missing or delayed alarm notification.

  • Logging configuration loss in specific cases.

    Devices are provided with a default configuration of data points to be logged with a default sampling period. This configuration is applied when the device is first added to the Panel Server .

    If the default configuration is changed such that the device is configured not to log any data, the default configuration is applied again to the device after a power loss or restart. There is no palliative action.
