    Good morning bodboy92,

    The pictures are really small - hard to see what they say?

    Good morning @bodboy92,

    In response to your statement, "For the CSV file, it doesn't update the data once I close the file" I'm confused - MS Excel can't update a file when it's not open and...

    In the article and video you reference, I have a PC connected to a PLC via a paid copy of RSLinx (not the free "Lite" version.)

    Good afternoon maitrey27,

    It would be so much easier to send data back and forth between Micro800s over Ethernet using CIP since you would not have to do the Modbus Mapping.

    Good morning @RonV5300,

    Some questions for you:
    - What version of View Studio are you using?

    Thanks for sharing your troubleshooting story with us Paul!

    I wonder if the PID's settings couldn't avoid oscillating until after the system was warmed up and running smoothly?

    Thanks for your article Nilesh.

    Hey jamesonline,
