Re: [foxboro] FBM204 failed to be recognized by system

Hi Dirk,

Thanks for your information. I also know that I/A series are rather
reliable. The guess that probably the FBM204 is bad has come just because
I can't find any other excuse :D

About the TA wiring, I did check it and pretty sure that it was right.
Any way, if I found another FBM204, I would give it a try and let you know
the result. :)

Rgards,

Jason
