Viewing I/NET Point Names in Vista Workstation instead of Addresses

Viewing I/NET Point Names in Vista Workstation instead of Addresses

Issue

When importing an I/NET network into a Vista Workstation, the point names are available, but only after you drill down to the link, station, point, bit offset, and view the point type.  This can be cumbersome when trying to bind graphics or navigate the network.

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

Vista Workstation 5.1.1 and above

I/NET Shortcut wizard

Cause

This is how the I/NET network is structured in I/NET.

Resolution

  1. Right-click on the I/NET network
  2. Select "Create I/NET shortcuts..."
  3. A folder is created with nested folders for individual controllers, but each shortcut point is renamed with the I/NET point name instead of the address.
