Welcome to the forum.......... :beerchug:

1. Check 1TW board has correct address on SW1 switch (I think all off for no.1 board).
2. Check also Aux 0611 and make sure correct IO has been allocated (32 Inputs and 32 Outputs).

First of all, Thank you for replying man...

yes i changed them to 32 inputs and 32 outputs and all the dip switches down.
Now the errors are gone and there are no alarm lights(red) on the boards, but the communication problem still persists...

If the 1TW has now been configured and the errors are gone, then the controller will be communicating with the 1TW board now.
If you are not reading inputs on the controller or reading inputs on your PLC, then check your wiring on CN2 and CN4.

1TW boards come in different flavours (NPN and PNP).
1TW boards CN2 is outputs and CN4 is inputs (often mistaken for the other way around).
1TW board requires external 24V and 0V to be connected to CN2 and CN4 respectively (often overlooked).
1TW NPN and PNP configurations are illustrated in the External IO Manual for correct configuration.

If fieldbus option has been enabled, it is possible that the signals are not allocated to local IO - Check Aux 060801 for this.

Thanks...

Also, the signals set to arm ID board was from 1001,    8 signals. This limited the connection with the plc. I set these to a different set of signals. Now it is communicating with the PLC. :dance2: :dance2: :dance2:
