Is there a way to configure a context tag for Rockwell add-on instructions or user defined data types? For example I would like to create a TankType structure with a property named identifier. For tank TK01 I assign the identifier to TK01 and I want all child tags to follow the TK01.TagName structure. I can't figure out the syntax for the tag I/O address expression.

As described here


Distributed Local Historians – The County was also concerned about the potential loss of data should the connection to remote sites be lost. In response, MPE configured the application to allow for use of VTScada as local HMIs at all remote stations. Once VTScada is deployed as a local HMI, if the station is cut

I'm trying to use a C# based dll with my VTScada application. To do so, I'm using The function DLL.

It's working well with integers, floats and strings, but I have to do some gymnastics to get a bool (I use an integer return type and apply a modulo 2 to the variable to get a 0 or a 1), and I flat out can't get any types of object. I'm trying to use a pointer as a return type but I al

Hi All, we are looking at a project where we want to host VTScada on a remote AWS web server and have it amalgamate several remote well sites connected to the internet with GSM modems. Has anyone deployed a system like this with VTScada before? We've done similar with other platforms but we're keen to move forward with a VTScada solution for this one. Any tips or info is appreciated!

Good morning,

I am currently working on a VTScada Light License with the goal of being an historian and data collector for a wastewater treatment pilot unit. I have come across the following issues when it comes to exporting/reporting:

What I can do with the HDV:

Export data for a specified unit time frame (ex: 2 days, 1 week)
Export "Time Per Record" to record every X minutes/seconds

I have the latest Light software. Up and running connected to a Compact Logix running V20 flawlessly. But with my V.28 Control Logix, it will connect long enough to show the connection in the AB Demo driver then disconnects. what can I try?

I have a customer that wants to use a ABB AC500 (modbus TCP) for waste water application. He wants to store the last 7 days of overflow water from the station and to read this data if it is missing in the historical data in VTScada.(if there has been a communication error)

I have just installed VTScada 11.3.10 on a Windows 7 (32-bit).
When it starts, the application manager is missing all text.
Hover notes work OK.
The 'About VTScada' window is blank.
I have restarted windows on the VM but still no text. Any suggestions please? What font does the application manager use?

Is there a way to change the color of the text based on some set-points for data coming from an Analog Status tag? I'm thinking you would use the "Text Change (4 state)" widget, but I can't figure out how to set the values for the different states.

For example, I would like it to always show the tag value, but change from blue when it's below 110.0 to green between 110.0 and 120.0, and red

Is it possible for each server/station of the same VTScada application to have their own Alarm DB and Event DB?

Or is there any way so that alarms would need to be acknowledged independently on each server/station? So if an alarm is acknowledged on one server, it still shows up as unacknowledged on the other.

Hello, can someone please take a look at the attached screen shots and let me know why there are no values for the tags "T_Room" and "DI4"? I'm connected through a USB to Modbus RTU converter. The TX and RX lights are flashing on the converter, so I know its talking to the PLC. The first four screen shots are from the PLC software. I not sure how the scaling should be set up for analog status

I have a custom page I need to be only accessed by superAdministrators.
In order do do this, I created an application privilege and added it to the required security privilege of the page. Then I added the application privilege to the superAdministrator role.

Now I would like to hide that application privilege from regular Administrator to prevent them from managing that privilege.

I'd like to add a vertical scrollbar to my window so I can see the elements outside that window scope. I am able to display the scrollbar using VScrollbar. As I understand, VScrollbar returns a numeric value representing its position.

I tried using WindowOptions to make a vertical translation equal to my scrollbar position to no avail.

Could you tell me how to properly use VScrol

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

We have the enquiry to get some of the parameter values (THD & SNR) in our SCADA.

I'd like to use an array of tags and order it by different characteristics in script (ex. the tags with an active alarm first).

I think the best way to achieve this is by using the function GetTagList then sort that array. Unfortunately GetTagList only return an array of tag names so I can't access the tags properties. In order to sort them I would need a function that return a tag p

The latest version of Chrome (64.0.3282.137) on Android (7.0.0) doesn't seem to allow you to logout of the VTS Anywhere client (VTS version 11.2.10). We use to be able to tap our name and the menu would pop up and give you the option to Log Off. Is there a work around to get this working again or is this working in the latest version of VTS.
