Issue Details

I am trying to add custom data sources, such as a cRIO or custom library, to the available data sources in the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) sample project. However, when I added a new subsystem and configured the I/O attributes in the configuration file, all of the new I/O items are duplicated for every other system. How can I add a subsystem to my system with unique I/O items?

Solution

This project is designed to be a reference architecture for a data system in which every subsystem has the same I/O points. Thus, the default example program is not built for systems where each subsystem has different I/O points. Nonetheless, because it is an open source starting template, the code can easily be extended to allow for unique I/O points for each subsystem.
