Local Variables

Local variables allow you to store data in memory when you start your runtime system. They are created each time the system starts, and therefore do not retain their values when you shut down.

Local variables are useful when you need each process to have a separate copy of the data. Each process has its own copy of each local variable configured in the project, and the values in a local variable are available only to the process that wrote them.
