I am Urban Humar student from Slovenia. I am studying at the Faculty of mechanical engineering at the University of Ljubljana.
At the moment I am working on a project for industry in Laboratory for fluid power and controls. For the project we are working with Parker Proportional valve (Parker DF PLUS (D30FPE50UA1HS5339)), which we want to control with Parker controller COMPAX 3 FLUID (C3F001D2F12I32T30M00). We have problems with connecting controller with the program on the computer (compax servomanager). We somehow manage to get some kind of connection with the program (look at the image1) but when we want to download the configuration from PC to controller we get error (look at the image2 and image3). The error says: Cannot Activate Communication Device Identification Error. We also get error if we start Online device identification, it says Cannot Activate Communication.
We have tried 3 different kinds of RS232 cables and also we tried to cut off the pin number one on RS232 connector as we find on Parker website as a potential trouble but the error remains. We also tried on different PC-s but the situation was always the same.
We are running out of time with the project so we will really appreciate your quick response.
I believe that together we will successfully solve this problem and finish this project
