Menu Selection: Insert > Field Point

Inserts one of the following types of field points into a field device under an integration:

Tip: On the Select Definition Mode screen, select Assisted Point Definition to automatically discover existing points on the network. Or on the Select Definition Mode screen, select Manual Point Definition.
Tip: Specifying the Instance Number for a field device point is different depending on if you are defining the point online or offline with SCT. If you are inserting the point online, you specify the Instance Number on the Select Data Source screen. If you are inserting the point offline with SCT, the Select Data Source screen is blank, and you define the Instance Number on the Configure screen under the Hardware tab, which is two screens later in the Insert Point wizard.
Tip: When adding a LonWorks point manually, the Target Reference appears blank. Manually type the path for the Target Reference (path into the controller for the data being mapped by the object) in the text box on the Select Data Source screen.
Tip: Select the Hardware tab on the Configure screen for further configuration.
