Configuration fails when adding more than 8 IDC5Q modules on a SNAP PAC EB-series brain


Applies To:

SNAP-PAC-SB1
SNAP-PAC-EB1
SNAP-PAC-EB1-FM

Versions Affected:

Versions affected: All versions


Symptoms:

When using PAC Manager or Ethernet Configurator to configure IDC5Q modules on a SNAP PAC EB-series brain, configuration takes longer and longer as more IDC5Q modules are added. If more than 8 modules are added, the configuration fails as the Save to Flash operation times out.

Workaround:

On the Status Write page in PAC Manager, the Digital Feature Scan Interval for EB-series and SB-series brains is set to 5 msec by default. Increase the value as necessary to restore performance. Be aware that this controls the rate at which digital scanning occurs.
