    Default Foster Systems Roof Not Working With Scheduler 3.5

    I just moved up to Scheduler 3.5.1 and am now getting scheduler dead conditions. I believe the issue is somehow related to the rate at which the roll off roof controller is polled.

    The roof is issued a open command. The readback will be closed then go opening, and then back to closed then the roof controller relay finally clicks and starts to open and then roof condition is reporting opening again. This is with the Foster systems roll off roof controller. I think the query is happening too quickly and the sequence from the controller is confusing scheduler. Nothing has changed with the hardware and everything was working fine with Scheduler 3.4.

    Here is the short log results when the error occurs on evening startup.
