We have some CompactLogix PLCs that each have similar tag structures. ie: tags with the same name
How do I handle that in Ignition?
In the SQL Tag Browser under Tags, I have created folders for each PLC. I can drag and drop the tags from each PLC into the proper folder.
This would be like:
I can use these to animate a window fine, but what do I do when it comes to a historical database?
When I try to put both in a single transaction group, it complains because the item names are the same.
What is the recommended way to handle this problem?
Is there a way to “alias” these names? Can I change the name of the tag, but leave the path to the tag the same?
