To increase the functionality of a network engine, you can add to the engine more than one field device under a single Modbus integration. The requirements are that all devices connect to the integration trunk in a daisy-chained fashion, all communicate at the same baud rate, and each device has a unique Modbus Address assignment. For each device, you associate a unique VMD resource file, then perform an auto-discovery to map in the field points.
