We have about 200 Horners that we would like to connect to on a daily basis to retrieve the data from them. We have logic to enable the device at a particular time every morning. We cannot keep all 200 devices enabled all day. this is a limitation and hence a requirement.
currently, we are doing this sequentially. one device is enabling itself in the gateway at a given time. it takes over 4 hrs to complete the entire process. it seems such a waste.
we would like to enable the 20 devices at a time and retrieve the data from these devices.
the device driver configured is a Modbus TCP.
i would like to know whether enabling & disabling multiple devices is recommended or is there is limitation in ignition that allows the user to make only limited number of gateway changes at a time.
