I’ve created a Power Table which pulls cycle time, the time of the completion of the cycle from a PLC (Allen Bradley CompactLogix). With running upwards of 400 parts a day, I’ve had to MANUALLY put the tags in the respective rows/columns. This means that I’ve had to sit down and copy, paste, and edit 1200 cells.
I have to do this for TWENTY lines. Ignition support has helped, but pretty much told me I’d have to do this to make it work.
Is there anyone that could clue me in on some scripting which would drastically cut my time of having to copy and paste tags in so many cells. I’m no Python expert, but there HAS to be a way I can put some scripting in that populates the Power Table off of arrays from the PLC without having to spend days copy and pasting.
