Scadapack RS485 comm issues

I am having issues communicating to a valve on an RS485 network. There are a total of 10 valves and the RS485 is daisy chained starting from the PLC to the first valve, and onwards to the last valve. The issue is I can see all of the valves utilizing modscan, except the first one the PLC is daisy chained to. I am not sure if there are termination resistors wired. Is there any reason I cannot see the first valve in the daisy chain but all others?

Hi Kevin,

 

Attached is an old document I sometimes refer to when dealing with an RS-485 issue. Please dig into that and check all the various issues discussed. One other item to consider is "What's different about that first valve?"  Maybe different firmware, maybe a different switch setting, maybe a poor terminal connection, could be any of many different things...
