Taken from manual
In WinCC flexible, recipes and records are treated very differently than in ProTool. In some cases it may make sense to implement recipes in a converted WinCC flexible project differently from the ProTool project.
Conversion of recipes
During conversion, recipes are imported from the ProTool project and modified as much as possible for the requirements and options of WinCC flexible.
Transfer and synchronization
In WinCC flexible, recipes are transferred directly via tags with a connection to the PLC. Synchronization is only possible with a PLC.
The following settings are imported unchanged during conversion of transfer and synchronization:
- "direct transfer"
- "no synchronization"
- "synchronization to PLC_n"
The following settings are automatically adapted:
Synchronization to "All PLCs"
Name, Version, Number
The settings are fully imported. If there are no settings in the ProTool project, valid presets are input for the WinCC flexible project.
The identifier is discarded in WinCC flexible. The recipes are identified by recipe number and recipe name in the PLC.
Input records again
In WinCC flexible, records are treated very differently than in ProTool. Because the records cannot be transferred from the ProTool project to the WinCC flexible project, they must be input again
