Working with a 3rd-party lon controller with no existing shadow object available. Niagara G3 provides the ability to create a shadow object on the jobsite using the Lon Xml Tool.
A shadow object is not available for a specific 3rd-party controller and a dynamic device fails to interface properly.
The Lon Xml Tool provides the ability to create a Lon Xml file (.lnml) file for a device, using the source .xif file and (if necessary) other resource files, as made available from the device's manufacturer.
Review Appendix A of the Lonworks Integration Guide for Niagara G3. The Lon Xml Tool is described starting on page A-1.
This section describes the need for custom Lon Xml files as well as an overview of the process and the steps to create one.
