What is an effective kitting method?

The most common method is to perform kitting using the clone function between terminals.
Select the "33. Clone" screen on the BT system menu. You can connect to eight units from one main unit at the same time. After that, you can clone these eight units as main units, so this makes it possible to perform kitting on multiple units without taking a long time.
* You have to manually configure settings that differ on each unit (such as an IP) after the kitting is finished.

You can do this by using background mode.
You can enable background mode from the "151. Power Management" screen on the BT system menu.
