The LonWorks network integration requires resource files to support integrating LonWorks enabled devices. Device resource files have file extensions of .XIF (External Interface File), .TYP (Type File), and .FPT (Functional Profile Template), and provide device type and configuration data. For example, an LN-VAVLF-1 controller has the following three device specific resource files: LN-VAVLF-1 110.XIF, LNVAVL1.TYP, and LNVAVL1.FPT.

Note: .TYP and .FPT resource files may not be provided for third party devices. In this case, you only need the .XIF file.
