EGX300 Real Time Monitoring

Resolution
The Custom Device Type Generator (CDTG) is a server-based application used for adding basic support for third party devices into EGX300. The CDTG provides an interface for collecting device information needed to support a custom or third party device. This information is then stored on the EGX in a custom device configuration file (*.dtc). From this file, the application will create and install the files needed by the EGX300 to support the new custom device.

The attached document describes the process of creating a custom device driver in the EGX300, so that real time readings can be viewed in the monitoring page.
