    Limitation on number of enabled physical ports to the meter will result in communication failure on the disabled ports.

    Product Line
    ION8650 option C

    Communication Ports

    The ION 8650 C only allows three physical ports to be enabled at any given time, of which one is always the front optical port.

    The meter has the capability to have up to six communication options (ports):
    1) COM1: RS232 / RS485
    2) COM2: internal modem
    3) COM3: front optical
    4) COM4: RS485
    5) Ethernet
    6) Cellular modem

    Only two ports can be enabled besides the front panel optical port (Which is always enabled by default) .  In order to use other communication options, the enabled ports should be disabled first.  Otherwise this message will pop up:
