Basically i have a Total Volume Tag I want to snapshot it into Current Month and Previous Month Calculation Tags on the 1st of the month at 8am.

Volume = 1000
Snap = 500
Cmonth = Volume - Snap

At the rollover time move the Cmonth to the Pmonth
and then move the Volume into the Snap.

Does anyone have any good ideas in how to do this in VTScada?

I have created one IO calculation tag (analog) that shows the value of PUMP RUN TIME in the second.

Ex. Let say I got a tag value as 3600 seconds.
From this tag, I need to show PUMP RUN TIME as in format 01:00:00 (hour:minute:second).

If the value is 3720 I need to show it as 01:02:00 (h:m:s)
If the value is 3750 I need to show it as 01:02:30 (h:m:s)

How can I show that?

Dear Sir,
our client want to pool data from VTScada server,
the VTScada already have OPC server license,
they want to pool data from another computer,

is there any tutorial / guide?

we already try to read the documentation, but still not understand,

where we create the Opcserver tags? is it below the driver / port tags?

Trying to input an analog value in a numeric entry box with 1 decimal place and publish over MQTT. Everything works fine but if the data entry is done wrong (entering a .xx value) the publish fails on the receiving PLC end. I limit the numeric entry box to 1 decimal and it displays properly in the the box (enter a number xx.xx and only xx.x rounded up is shown), but in the MQTT world as soon as E

I have my DNP3 protocol XML file that includes Digital inputs, Digital outputs, Analog inputs, Analog outputs, Counters, etc.

I need to parse this data to VTScada and I need that VTscada generates tag accordingly.

How can I read the XML file into VTScada and end results that VTScada automatically generates the tags in Tag browser?

How can I do that?

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.

Is there any way to rename a type? I can't figure out a way through the application configuration or through export & sync. I have tried exporting and changing the name on the VTS_Reserved tab and deleting the export info and data fields but that didn't seem to work.

Alternatively, is there an easy way to make a copy of a type?

Anyone have any ideas?

I've an opportunity to install a new SCADA system, but prior to quote the job, I wanted to test if it's working.

Can anyone tell me how to launch what VTScada call the "CIP Address Select tool"?

All I can find in the help is this reference which tells me it exists but there is nothing here about how to open it.

I am trying to check Modbus communication using Simulation.

But values are not updating during Simulation (version 12) on my laptop(Windows 10, i5, 12GB RAM).

IP address series also kept same. i.e. and (TCP port Connection)

If I keep IP address as as shown in Tutorial videos, then simulation works and values are updated for Modbus.

My PLC contains some ASCII text stored within sequential MODBUS registers. How can this be displayed in VTScada?

I've tried both an "I/O and Calculations" tag with a String data type as well as a Legacy "String I/O" tag. No mater how I set these up numbers are displayed instead of text. Also, there is nowhere to put in the range of Modbus registers which hold the numbers which represent th

I am currently using an analog modem for VTS dial out alarming, and am looking to shift to VOIP.

I know that VTS supports Twilio, but are there any other VOIP providers that VTS supports?

I'm trying to use Analog Statistics on a calculated tag. The minimum and maximum values for yesterday are always the same. The calculated tag is combining a low and high register value for flow pulses. You can see the direct reading of the low register tag (2nd pic) shows yesterdays minimum and maximum values correctly. I also attached the calculation tag and expression I used. Why do the statis

This question was left on our YouTube tutorial for the VTSCada JSON driver found here...

Answer: Absolutely. You can put parameter expressions in the URL which reference V
Is OPC UA Driver supported in Light Version? I cannot get it to connect to a server: status not refreshed.

On the I/O address assist button seems grayed out and I cannot tell what is failing.

Tried from same client host UAExplorer and it connects fine.

I selected Anonymous and no certificates. Is this configuration not supported?

Is the a log file somewhere I can view?

I am working on integrating some backend ERP database information into some of the views we have setup. In working to get a query to operate I have a number of where clause items but it appears there is a length limit on the number of characters for the query. Is this configurable and can I make that a longer value? Thanks,

I had a issue and was wondering if there were any known issues.

VTSCADA version 12.0.05

I created a Analog Output and a IO Calculation Tag (Only one was active at a time just to make sure it wasnt a tag type issue) to write Seconds to a PLC to verify VTSCADA was communicating to the PLC.

When i logged off my user account both tags would stop writing to the PLC, i added the logged off
Hello. New to this software and trying to get an analog input to read correctly. Maybe this has a simple solution and I'm just missing it.

Basically, I'm reading the analog input register of a MODBUS device which uses a 16-bit unsigned register for its 4-20 mA input. You get a value of 0-65535 with this.

If I read this register with VTScada, it works fine until the 16th bit changes from a

I've begun using VTScadaLIGHT and I've run into some trouble. I started logging some data and I noticed after a few days that my timestamp is off. Turns out the system's clock was set for the wrong time zone.

I changed it (pacific time to eastern time) and now the Historical Data Viewer is misbehaving...for all tags. When I resume the live view, the far right side is lined u

I have been using Push Button widgets with a Siemens S7-1200 and digital I/O tags. I assign the HMI button bit in the PLC to another bit in the PLC and immediately reset the HMI button bit. When pressing the button repeatedly, despite being 1 all of the time, the Siemens controller sees a change from zero to 1 each time.

I'm communicating with an ABB AC800M PLC using the OPC-DA Driver in VTScada. When reading tags, I can increase the "scan rate" in the tag itself, and as long as the OPC server is properly configured, I can get updated values as frequently as I need them.

Pushbuttons on the other hand are "written" to the OPC Server, and there is a 1 second delay at least from pushbutton press to the time the

Hi, in tag browser we can see tag values displayed but they all drop out periodically, with corresponding drop out of information on screens. I'm pretty sure this means that the polling loop is taking too long.

I'd like confirm our strategy for dealing with this:

a. adjust polling intervals on all tags to minimum required.
b. adjust timeout period on our ScadaPACK node, for which all

I am in need of help establishing comms to a PLC via the GESRTP driver. I have added a driver to the main area and added children to it as shown in the attached pic. Can anyone tell me what value 26 means in the driver value? If I unplug the PLC the value changes to 2. Also another issue I have is what control do I need to turn on/off bits within the PLC?
