Change the device address for a FOUNDATION fieldbus device

Note: The physical address of a FOUNDATION fieldbus device is read-only when the device is commissioned or a host/linking device is detected on the fieldbus segment. To change the device address, use the host system or remove the device from the fieldbus segment and connect it directly to the Trex unit.
  1. Connect to the FOUNDATION fieldbus device.
  2. Tap Service Tools.
  3. Tap Device Node Address.
  4. Tap OK when prompted that the device will be restarted after the parameter is changed.
  5. Tap Yes or No when asked if the device is commissioned.
    You cannot make changes if the device is commissioned.
  6. Enter the new address, and tap OK.
    The Trex unit disconnects from the device.
  7. Tap OK on the message that indicates the device has been disconnected from the Trex unit.
    The Device List appears and displays the device at the new address.
  8. Tap the device to connect to it.
