The Node template outlines the type of node (i.e. environmental monitor, single-phase power monitor or three-phase power monitor). Each device will effectively become a virtual "monitoring node" with a 16-digit GUID. The device will need to be assigned to the applicable node template.
Creating a new node template
Log in to EMX. Under the Manage tab, open the OPI drop down menu and click on OPI Template.
Click on the node name in the "Template Nodes" column.
The Nodes Readings screen will appear. Select the desired template from "Current Template" drop down menu.
Select the "add template" (+) icon to add a new node template and select from the correct templates previously added. This will expose the "Add Node Template" dialog box.
