The main purpose of the basic Device tab is to define where the point is located in a device and how the point is to be updated.

Basic device specifications include:

Step 3.1.1

Select a device ID.

Step 3.1.2

Enter a customized address.

Step 3.1.3

Select update criteria for a device point.

 Note: Addressing is used for most GE Fanuc device communications options and for devices created via the Device Communications Toolkit API that uses custom addressing.

If you write a custom device communication interface using the device communications Toolkit API and you design your interface to use standard addressing you will get a different display.

For further information on addressing for the protocol and device, see the CIMPLICITY Device Communications documentation.
