Modbus Device Importer

There is an invalid register address configured in the driver that is causing the bad status.

Open the affected translator file in the Modbus Device Importer (Management Console>Tools>Modbus Device Importer). Once open, find the invalid Modbus address referenced in the Management Console error; in this case, it is registered as '400000'. Either reassign the correct Modbus address or remove the register completely from the translator, save, and update the device type.
