    Thank you for the quick response, we are looking forward to the new modbus adater.  Meanwhile, we made some quick changes to  existing wingboards to power the Y-511A from the 12v available on the V1.1 rev B, with good results.   One station is back to normal and the other should be as soon as the updated wingboard is installed.  Thanks!

    Edit 12/22/23:  The change to the wingboards did not resolve the issue, but did change the data the Y511-a was sending from -9999 to 0.0

    Edit 2/9/24:  Turns out the wiper on the Y-511A was rotating outside of its normal operation and got stuck on an adjacent PVC fixture.  If the wiper rotates 360 degrees instead of just wiping back and forth, the rubber wiper will overhang the stainless steel body of the Y-511A, and collide with other things.   The stuck wiper was pulling a lot of current, and possibly causing voltage sag on the Mayfly.  Unstuck now, and appears to be operating normally.
