What is Devicenet IDLE Mode?

2. Turn on the bit O.CommandRegister.Run for the scanner.

If the devicenet scanner card installed on slot 3, O:3/0 should be 1.

If the devicenet scanner card installed on slot 2, O:2/0 should be 1.

If the zeroth bit of the slot in which the card is installed is set to 1 and still does not work. First reload the configuration on the scanner card, if the situation does not change, replace the DeviceNet scanner card.
Download the DeviceNet configuration on your card.
