The VTScada Red Bell can be turned off on the server, but the VIC clients and Anywhere Clients are still showing it. How do you get the same behavior out of the clients that you do from the server?

I turned off "Show Alarm Indicators" in the application configuration / Title Bar Contents. And it is gone from the Server but not the clients.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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

The organisation I'm currently working for use measured data in offline models to produce predicted (forecast) data for the parameters we monitor.

Can VT Scada handle importing data with future timestamps? and can it handle multiple predicted data datasets?

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 hoping to integrate VTScada with one of the Azure data store products as the historic data archive, has anyone done this before?

My fallback position is to use MS SQL in Azure but would like to use Azure Data Lake or Azure Data Explorer

Good morning,
I am seeking additional resources, experience, or advice for integrating an Inovonics EN4080 IP gateway and associated equipment into VTLight.

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.

I have created one context tag named it as "MRD455" and description as "MRD455 Testing". Then it displays its Description name on the sites overview main page by default.

How can I display the actual site name on sites overview main screen.
I want to see MRD455 (site name) on sites page. HOw can I do it.

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.

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?

When using a Zoom modem for alarm dial-out, I am getting a SAPI Error: 0x8004530A when attempting to call out. I have downloaded the correct driver from Zoom, checked the registry settings, set my area code and run the diagnostics on the modem (every was normal). Any thoughts?

Solved - We had the modem installed on a rack mount server running Server 2019 with no sound card.

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?

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?

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.

• 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

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.

The help says this tool is "... found in every I/O tag that uses the CI

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
