Resolution

The MNL-800 will not display network variable nvi, nvo, and nci objects unless the device's self documentation is modified to provide what the wizard considers a valid LonMark and function block reference.

  1. Open the properties for the MNL-800 (Dynamic Device) and expand the Device Data. Locate the Self Doc property and configure the value as follows: 3.3@8000;
  2. Launch the Ec Dis Wizard and the MNL-800 will now expand to display the nvi, nvo, and nci objects for selection.
