So trying to read values out of an INT table from a PLC5. The positive values all read fine but if we try to read a negative integer value we get the wrong data in VT, usually a value of 6553. To get around this we just did a MOV from INT to a FLT and it reads fine again.
What would be the limitation of reading negative integer values?
I need to set the scheduling for the SOV's (solenoid operating valve) at a certain time interval. attached an image for the scheduler?
I tried to make this with the Trigger tag available in VTScada. I have set On-time & Off-time of the scheduler. Scheduler starting at its set time interval. But how can I enable my tag for SOV at the same time?
I am trying to setup MDS Diagnostics Driver tags using TCP/IP ports, everything is on the same subnet, I have tried using the only ports I can find documented in the manual (GE MDS iNET) which are 30011 and 30010, but have no results. Have also tried the default 3001 and 502. Any suggestions? Thanks.
I use graphic editors quite a bit and some features that come in extremely handy that are absent VT Scada would make the work flow more seamless and less tedious in many cases especially when working with multilayer graphics.
• The first I would like to suggest is the ability to lock layers while editing pages or widgets so that they cannot be moved or changed while they are locked. To
I have created context groups for Pump1, Pump2, Pump3...and so on in the tag browser. My aim is to on idol studio screen Pump tiles is enabled/disabled accordingly context tags enable/disable. e.g. If I have enabled context tags for pump1 & pump2 only then only 2 pump tiles widgets will be shown on the screen. Rest will disappear. How can I achieve this ?
We want to export and sync the VTScada tags to our dnp3 outstation database. We set up an odbc datasource and tested the connection with success. However when we hit "Export", we get "Operation Failed" at the bottom of the window. Any clues?
We are incorporating opendnp3 outstation into our product. We are sending changes with time. However, all logs and trends show points changing at time of reception rather than the time sent with the point change. We have used wireshark to verify the unsolicited change message is going out correctly. Is there a configuration in VTScada to tell it to use the transmitted time rather then the tim
I created an additional Alarms Page using an Alarm List widget, and it allows me to filter the System Event DB out, but that pesky Alarm Icon at the Title Bar is glowing and offers to take a User straight to the Original Alarms Page where they have access to see all of the System Events.
Any way to stop that on one front or the other?
I have even used SecurityCheck to give Developers visi
I'm just testing some comms on the bench here for a customer. I can set up the DF1 tags fine and get good comms and data when set to TCP/IP, but when I try to switch it over to the serial comms I get an error code 16 Illegal Command or Format. I can see on my SerialPort tag I don't have any errors so it must be something in my DF1 driver tag I'm missing.
Need to send an alarm acknowledgement over MQTT, is there a way that I can read the status of an alarm to send; or can I look at the canned ack button and send after that has been pressed? I just need something to trigger a write message.
