Introduction To Recipes On NA
A recipe is a quick way to download a set of parameters for a batch of the products. Templates are configured with sets of ingredients. Each ingredient is linked to a variable and then instances of the recipe can be defined. Selecting a specific instance will load these values into the variables and download to the controller where relevant. To learn more about how to use recipes in NA please read 'Creating And Using Recipes And Templates On NA' article.
