Me and my team are working on a older scada to ignition migration. There are maybe 20 PLCs in the field that are configured in Ignition.
Right now we are in the design stage are we want to import the PLC tags and structure them using UDTs…
Let’s take a pump UDT for example. We added all the tags that are related to pumps:
Pumps are from 20 different PLCs and they are not programmed the same. For a pump coming for a certain PLC, some tags wont be binded because they don’t exist. We will disable the tag that are not used during the tag importation.
My question is, can it be problem (performance wise) for ignition to have multiple Disabled tags? We are talking 50 to 75 pump tag instances that could have tags disabled. All the other equipment in the Field, motors, valves, control valves, compressors, etc…will work the same.
