not working RS485 on crio9045

I want to use the onboard RS485 on the crio9045 but without success. 

I connected the TXD+ pin with the RXD+ pin and the TXD- pin with the RXD- pin as descript in the loopback test (

In the MAX I try to sent the *IDN?\n command. As a response it get a timeout.


As second option I have an USB-485 NI. But the crio is only detecting an unknown usb device.


Is there some software / driver that I need to install to let it work?

Some manufacturers reverse the + and - pin. 

You could try this.
