This dialog is used to define the address of the field device, as well as other device-specific configuration items.
This address is used in two distinct manners:
It is used to map a DeltaV serial device to an IP address in the VIM, and
It is used to address field devices when a protocol converter is used. A protocol converter could be an EtherNet/IP to Data Highway Plus bridge.
Device addresses must be unique on the selected DeltaV IO Card Port. The device address can be any integer between 1 and 255.
This is an optional string to aid in identifying a device in the VIM configuration. This string can be 32 characters long.
This is the IP address of the field device, or the bridge through which the VIM must use to reach the target field device. The list will contain all IP addresses in the VIO configuration file for the parent VIM Placeholder. The address that will be used is the one that is selected when the button is clicked.
To add a new device, click the EtherNet/IP Field Device IP Address for more information.button. To edit the selected IP address, click the button. See
