Custom Device Hierarchy

Last Modified: June 10, 2021

A logically configured hierarchical structure allows operators to efficiently use your custom device.

The hierarchy of a custom device is its appearance in System Explorer. The top level of the custom device hierarchy is the device itself, which appears under Custom Devices section of the configuration tree. Under the device, you can add any number of sections and channels to build the hierarchy.

Sections are groups of items in the hierarchy. You can group similar channels in a section. For example, you can group input channels into a Inputs section.

All items in the hierarchy must be either sections or channels.

The following example shows the hierarchy of a typical power supply custom device.
