Go to and access the Open Power Interface (OPI) menu under the Manage tab.

Click OPI Templates, then Add Template (+).  This will open the "Add Template" dialog box. 

Complete the form.

Template Sysoid:  For Modbus mapping use "234234". For SNMP mapping use the correct System OID.

Template Protocol:  Select either Modbus or SNMP from the drop down menu depending on the device's communication protocol
