Problem Daisy Chaining controllers in LOR Hardware - General Posted November 25, 2014 Test each cable you are planning on using by connecting one end of the cable to the 485 adapter and the other end to the controller. Run a test to make sure you can detect the controller using the hardware utility and can turn the channels on and off. Unplug the network cable from one connector on the controller and plug it in the other connector. Repeat the test. Do that for all of your cables. Get rid of any cable that does not work.Thanks That seems to have solved it.
