Kepware Knowledge Base: Solution

Received Unable to read bytes '<bytes>' starting at offset '<offset>' for Data Block '<address>' on device '<device>'. Device returned data access error [Code=0x05] Error Message

Last Update: 11/7/2018

Reading data from a data block results in an error that causes all registers in the block to be invalidated and the quality to be set to Bad.

Possible Cause: An incorrect request may have been sent to the device after Item Syntax was used to access a Boolean in a data block. The error will occur when requesting a bit in a byte that is positioned at the end of the data block. This affects the following item syntax:

  • DB[num],B[address][.bit]
  • DB[num],BYTE[address][.bit]
  • DB[num].DBB[address][.bit]
  • DB[num].DB[address][.bit]

Access Booleans using alternate syntax. For more information, refer to the examples below.

  • Instead of "DB[num],B[address][.bit]" use "DB[num],C[address][.bit]".
  • Instead of "DB[num],BYTE[address][.bit]" use "DB[num],C[address][.bit]".
  • Instead of "DB[num].DBB[address][.bit]" use "DB[num].C[address][.bit".
  • Instead of "DB[num].DB[address][.bit]" use "DB[num].C[address][.bit]".
