I am trying to set the time in some of my PLC’s by using ignition. I am currently using the AB Logix clock update tool but it is not very reliable. I have setup a UDT that holds the master time values Year, Month etc down to second. What I want to do is every day assign the values in this UDT to the PLC tags for each of my devices.
I am able to get it to work by using a transaction group but this is time consuming to set up as I need one for each PLC. I have been trying to get it to work through a script but again this is very time consuming to setup as I seem to have to assign the tag path for each device in the script. I am wondering if there is an easier method to accomplish what I am trying to do.
I am thinking that if I was able to get the tag path through an expression I could then pass this to the script with the master values and update the PLC tags. All of my devices have the same folder structure the only difference been the device name.
Igintion version 7.5.2
