About this task

When online with a LonWorks device, you can use the Engineering view of the LonWorks Integration object to command NVI values for any LonWorks device and to edit NexSys point data. The Mapped Devices folder contains a list of all mapped devices. The NVIs and NexSys points do not have to be mapped to the Navigation Tree to be acted on.

To use the Engineering view to view and edit NVIs and NexSys points:


  1. Right-click the LonWorks Integration object in the Navigation tree and select View. The LonWorks Integration object appears.
  2. Click the Engineering tab and navigate to either a field point or NVI in the Integration Tree.
  3. Double-click the selected field point or NVI. The Details screen for the selected field point object or NVI appears.

  5. Make the desired changes, click Save, and close the screen.
