I will soon be deploying ignition at our factory. We have a range of PLCs - Siemens, AB, Schneider and others.
In my last ignition project, I used UDTs linked to faceplates but this was only using S7-1200 controllers. This approach saved a lot of time and made maintenance and additions very simple.
What is the best approach for tags when using multiple controller brands? Is it better to set up many tags with basic data types (bool, real, int etc.) or to maintain a library of UDTs and faceplates for each controller brand?
Any experience or advice would be welcome.
