The discover feature finds all interface modules from the same manufacturer that are connected to the same channel and adds them to the list. For this to work, all of the interface modules must use the same baud rate and be configured with a different physical address.
The hardware type, channel, and interface modules you added are displayed in the hardware tree.
For each interface module you added, select it from the hardware tree and click
Edit (), then configure its settings
in the window that opens.
