This object represent a DeviceNet device in DeltaV Explorer. The parent connection defines the details of the device. A DeviceNet device has two buffers, one for input and one for output. Each buffer is a maximum of 255 bytes long. The VIM uses these devices as a mapping point between VIM and DeltaV.
This will display the properties of the device.

This is the name of the device. This name is only used if the FHX Export feature is used. The VIM does not use this field to match the VIM configuration to the DeltaV configuration.
This can be used to provide a friendly reminder to the purpose of the device. This does not affect VIM communications.
This address is used to connect the VIM configuration to the DeltaV configuration. The address must be unique on a port. If the address matches between DeltaV and VIM, the data will be mapped.
These are the sizes of the buffers, in bytes, allocated for the device. These sizes are calculated from the parent connection. The buffer size for the device in DeltaV must match these sizes.
