A multi-port router can be represented in a LonMaker drawing using several LonMaker Basic Shapes routers if the internal structure of the L-IP is understood. Alternatively, Loytec provides a stencil library of their routers that can be used.
- Loytec L-IP routers
- L-IP-3ECT, L-IP-1ECT, L-IP-33, L-IP-3333, LS-13333, LS-11333, LS-13300 LS-33300, LS-33, LS-13, LS-11
The LonMaker Basic Shapes router only represents a single port router (near side/far side). To represent the 2, 3, or 4 port L-IP routers requires multiple basic routers with different channel types, or one of the device templates from the Loytec Shapes stencil library.
- Download the latest Loytec Shapes 5.0 stencil library here.
- Extract the contents of the .zip file
- Move the LoytecShapes.vss files to C:\LonWorks\LonMaker\Visio
Note: This is assuming that LonMaker is installed at the default location on the C: drive
- Start LonMaker
- Go to File > Stencils > LoytecShapes
- Select the router part number that matches the physical device. The appropriate channels for the router will be added along with the shape. Each port can now be commissioned separately.
