I'm using AXC F2152 controller, my program run in SampleRuntime framework,

My program need reboot device and I used the code:


After reboot, the device turn on LED FAIL and can not read value from analog module

Could you show me the properly way to reboot device ?

1. When the controller restarts, are both the RUN and FAIL LEDs flashing at 2 Hz?

2. Do you see the following entry in the Output.log file after the restart?

23.03.20 13:38:40.199 Arp.System.Watchdog.Internal.SystemWatchdogRebootCounter INFO - last reboot caused by hardware watchdog

If so, then this indicates that the hardware watchdog has been triggered, which (based on my tests) is a side-effect of rebooting the PLC using this method.

If this looks like the same problem you are seeing, please try disabling the hardware watchdog using this procedure:

The Environment variable you want to set to "false" is ARP_SYSTEM_WATCHDOG_SUPPORT.

Disabling the hardware watchdog caused my AXC F 2152 to reboot OK using this method.

Hope this helps.
