Modbus configuration gives an error

The problem occurred after the HA core update. Modbus configuration gives an error.Failed to call service homeassistant/reload_all.
Cannot quick reload all YAML configurations because the configuration is not valid: Invalid config for [modbus]:
HT Energy: count: 2 cannot be combined with data_type: float32 @ data[‘modbus’][0][‘sensors’][0].
Got {‘name’: ‘HT Energy’, ‘device_class’: ‘energy’, ‘unit_of_measurement’: ‘kWh’, ‘slave’: 21, ‘address’: 300, ‘count’: 2, ‘data_type’: ‘float32’, ‘precision’: 2, ‘scan_interval’: 15}. (See /config/configuration.yaml, line 32).

Just remove the “count: 2” line and restart HA.


Thank you very much. Everything is fixed. Just curious. This configuration has lasted for over a year without any errors.

Exactly same here when reading my power meter - was almost going crazy as it was a long walk to get it stable. What has triggered this to fail now in version 10?

The same issue here, 11 times. Thanks Marco, for this fix!
