Posted 1 Nov Hey – I got some life from my kfd!
Register a new account. Sign in Already have an account? Posted 18 Oct Can the KFD units “lock up and need some sort of reset to get them going again.
It has been a while sense I used the KFD but could something else using the serial port? Tried Different comm ports, baud rates, DNet data rates, laptop reboots, devicneet to no avail. Then Devixenet tried loading the DF1 driver – the lite blinked for it too.

Although last night, I couldn’t load the kfd driver even after doing the above – I also couldn’t get the RS light on the kfd to blink. After the reboot, make sure serial port is good and start over with RSLinx.
DeviceNet & 1770-KFD Serial coms problem
Check com port and data rate, amended data rate baud until vevicenet KFD’s RS indicator flashed Green correct baud rate driver would still not show up in “Configured Drivers”. I’ve had a look in the AB knowledge base and through these forums but have not found a similar case or fix. Make sure service isn’t running.
So I am also looking for help. Posted 1 Nov edited. Sometimes something grabs the port and you won’t know it. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.
DeviceNet & KFD Serial coms problem – Allen Bradley –
Hi, I have managed to get this sorted, the core issue I had was the serial cable to the KFD, I had used a null modem cable devicehet that had worked initially, but when it all turned pear shaped I used the correct KFD serial cable I made mine up from the pin config in the KFD documentation – search the Rockwell literature library for KFD it all worked fine. This prompted me to think that there was something seriously wrong with the DNet network itself and that was corrupting the KFD, but the other nodes on the network appear to be comming with each other, so I don’t think that is the case.
Close RSLinx, then close programs and reboot. A DF1 driver or other program perhaps?
Then I retried the kfd driver, and the lite blinks for it too!! I’ve had the same problem in the past – which I normally fixed by setting all my Rockwell services to Manual startup and making sure that RSLinx was running as a service.
I’ve had this same problem and here is what I did and it worked even though I not sure why. Sevicenet anyone had a similar situation or know of a fix???
