In part of a recent post, I asked about scripting on a startup.
It was agreed that this isn’t always a good idea .
Could someone please give some pointers as to the most efficient way of using tags, bindings and scripting with regards to the speed and efficiency of the gateway and also the response time of the clients?
I am using UDTs at both PLC and Designer.
I am using indirect bindings and parameters to make generic objects and tags.
I was using Client tags to identify a Client for indirect tag binding. What I was doing here was to use the startup script to get the ip address and thus make a Client tag ’ HMInumber’. I am sure I could do this on another event to avoid any problems due to the scrip not running that single time.
I am also using the page opened event to write a tag path string to a client tag. Again, cause for concern in case it doesn’t run. But again, I am sure it can run on another event.
Along with the above I was hoping for some pointers on what other people have found has worked for them.
Gateway and client settings too.
I pretty much have all of my equipment set at the default settings, plus whatever I had to change to make it work.
Any suggestions and pointers would be graciously received.
