Isolator is telling me It has an error with temp sensors (lt. 6sec on 6sec off) No sensor attached to the terminals. voltage across the terminals 1.3 ign off. 1.3 ign on shut down the system and started it back up, still error. help please. 512 in since2002

It make just be the temp. sensor. Disconnect the sensor wires and measure again at the terminals.

Temp sender is not attached. It was attached for about 9 years then this started so I detached it to check and there is still an error

Try tightening the end screws on terminal blocks. The very end screws make connection through standoffs to the inside. Over time and the environment, the contact between the standoff and the PCB can get a film on it.

Did that already. no change.
I tightened screws. Iunpluged temp sensors. I shut off all electricity to unit and re started. Error lt shows 6sec. on 6sec off

Meanwhile, do you still have the field replacement module ( I assume that is what I need) available? Or do I need the whole unit to replace while I send this one for repairs?

I'm not familiar with a field replacement module. Send in the whole unit with the terminal block PCB attached.

Ok 512 is no more. we had a good wake for it with plenty of alcohol involved while it it was placed in its final resting place. I will miss it. it gave many good years of service and it probably died of a minor thing that could have been corrected. But! We go on now with a replacement that has to be learned all over and I still have not the confidence in this new thing as I did my old faithful. Gone but not forgotten. RIP
