Got it – thanks! I had the USB DIP switch off. I misinterpreted the specs sheet about the function of the switch, thinking it only disabled the LED, not the port. Is there a power penalty if I leave the USB switch on for a field deployment? The spec suggests that there is, but the USB LED won’t be lit in that case.
