Pentair is not responding to commands from the module

Date Posted: 9/24/2009


Check to see if the command character has been changed.  See page 5 of the iLink manual for more on "CMDCHR".  Some iLink adapters have shipped with the CMDCHR value set to something other than the default. Power down the adapter by either turning off the whole Pentair system, or remove the phoenix connector inside the i-Link adapter. Re-apply power and the adapter should say Pentair Water - i-Link Protocol Interface Adapter v1.010 CMDCHR = #. If the line CMDCHR = x, where "x" is a character other than # then you will have to change it back to the default. To do so simply send “xCMDCHR = #\r” to the i-Link adapter and replace the x with the character that is currently being sent.
