New to Ignition and need some help.
I have 3 devices connected to my gateway. I am trying to figure out how I can pass values from one tag to another. For example, I want to take the temperature value from my Micrologix 1400 PLC and pass the value to a tag I have on my Microcontroller.
I know software like KepServer has a tag linking function. Ie to make one tag equal the other, but i’m hoping to just use Ignition.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
You could put a tag change script on the first tag that writes its value to the second tag.
You could use a tag change script (or a gateway tag change script if you have lots in a folder structure) to write the value into the other corresponding tag. Shy of that, I’m not sure if there’s another way.
You could create a library script function to handle it with some smarts to write to the right corresponding tag, assuming you have a logical tag structure for the two sets of tags from each device
Beat me to it!
