Product Line

SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

  • Workstation
  • LonWorks Network

Cause

Currently as of SmartStruxure version 1.4.1, the Local Node can only have 400 network variables. The number of network variables that have been created may need to be known for engineering purposes.

Resolution

To find the number of network variables under a Local Node:

  1. Select the Local Node in the system tree.
  2. In List View, double click on the DeviceTables object.
  3. Click on the Selector Table tab. Navigate to the bottom of the table and take note of the last number in the Index column. Subtract one from this last number to get a total of network variables under the Local Node.
