I have Artisan communicating with the latest CP201x driver on Mac OS X Sierra.
You issue is for sure a communication issue "outside" of Artisan. Are you sure
the correct serial device is selected? To check, disconnect the device (its serial2USB
connector) from the machine running Artisan and check the entries of the "Comm
Port" popup in the MODBUS tab. reconnect that device (or its serial2USB connector) to
the machine and check that "Comm Port" popup again. There should be one
additional entry generated for your device by the CP210x driver. This one has to be

Thank you! Thanks for indicating that there is no communication with roaster. I was
unsure if the -1 indicated this.
Yes this has never worked with this machine & CP210x driver on MAC OS Sierra- but it
has worked fine on other Mac software with same driver and on Windows.
I have read that previously the CP210x driver had issues with Sierra but the manufacturer
of the driver says that has been fixed. (Sorry for typo in last email- driver is CP210x)
I was not sure if having previously running Artisan with another driver on his Mac for a
different type roaster could cause conflicts between both drivers and Mac or Artisan. Has
anyone heard of conflicts with multiple drivers or paths being corrupted by installing a
2nd driver for use on the same software?
I have asked him to delete and reinstall software and drivers. I also asked him to swap
out USB cords in case his was bad.
Thanks for all your insight!
