    Default Allocations linking replacement

    Hi everyone,

    For different reasons I have to send data placed in local variables to different PLCs, since there is not a Multiplexor tool Zenon native, I have to do it creating allocations for each variable local to its corresponding PLC variable. My local variables are 9 arrays of 20 variables= 180 variables, all those variables need to be sent to 12 PLCs, which means I have to create 180*12=2160 allocations.
    Is there a way I can do a replace link or whatever you want to call it, to do it more efficiently? To avoid having to type each of them? Not just because I need to save some of my time, but because typing 2160 allocations will surely drive me to errors.

    Please, tell me there is a smarter and more efficient way to do this!!!! 
    Please!!!
    Please!!!

    Thank you all!!!
    Have a nice day!!!

    A job for Recipegroup Manager.
    Or make the source and process variables externally visible for the zenon Logic and program there.

    Thanks for your answer.

    This could work, if I could trust that every operator, of every single machine we install, will load all the variables they need to be linked in every recipe from the local variable to the PLC (or PLCs) variables every single time they load a recipe, but unfortunatelly this has to be something the operator doesn't have to worry about. 
    If different recipes are created and need to be sent to different PLCs, different days, by different operators, etc, this need to be done automatically. RGM is a powerfull tool, but some of the tasks need to be automated. 

    I guess I'll have to type in my 2160 allocations!!!!!! 

    Yayyyyyyy, its going to be a wonderful week!!!

    Thank you anyway!!!!

    why you think you can automate the execution of allocations but not of RGM???

    you can just link functions executing the right recipe to some limits of variables checking the current conditions a/o combine with Time Control module.
