Same logic, different controllers?

3 posts in this topic

I need to run 4 exactly same devices with 4 different controllers. The logic for them would be exactly the same but the IPs and controller names would be different.

Is there a way to do it using 1 project file? Basically whenever download is done the logic would be downloaded but the controller name/IP would be left unchanged.

They will be connected to the same network so the IPs must be different.

I am using 1769-L32E for these and all racks are set up exactly the same.

Any ideas?

Had no experience with AB, but in Omron we can choose to Download the program part only and left the settings, such as PLC IP Address, unchanged.
I believe AB programming tool should have a same functionality.

In the Logix 5000 world, downloading the program doesn't affect the IP address but does affect the processor name. To do what you want, you would have to change the processor name in the project before downloading it.
