I’ve removed two ABB robots that were communicating to an AB CompactLogix via ethernet using the IRC5 slave only fieldbus adapter that we installed a year and a half ago.   Those didn’t have enough payload and we exchanged with larger units but these have Ethernet master/slave.  The ethernet m/s operates through a DSQC612 card.  I’ve gone through every manual I can get my hands on and talked with Tech Support.  We loaded the EDS in the AB PLC and matched our sizes to 64in x 64out.   No errors on the robot at all.  The PLC shows the yellow triangle on these modules that is not communicating.  We are at a loss / standstill.  Any insight you may have would be appreciated.  ABB2400 running RobotWare 5.15.
