Hi, Is there a way to edit a Type property from the VT HMI? Some users will not have access to the Tag Browser but may be required to change IP address which is set up as a property of the Site Type. I tried several methods to set up a Linked Tag Widget but have been unsuccessful.

I'm thinking that I may have to script it somehow but want to know if I'm missing something before I go down that

I am building a plant from scratch. The plant has different types of equipment and all I can see in VTScada are various pumps, valves, and motors. Has anyone built or have access to bar screens, conveyor belts, weir gates, or anything else that might be useful?

Thanks in advance!

Good Day Support Team,

Few months ago i built an application running with ModBus communication. On the laptop i made it, it works like a charm.

Then i've installed VTScada on another laptop, and import the project that was on my persoanl laptop on this new one.

i set up the fixed IP address as suppose to be, but i have no communication at all. I can PING the IP of the PLC, so it means

I am working with a Siemens S7 TIA Portal program and I am trying to pull the part type from the PLC into the VTSCADA system. The issue I am having with the String I\O is I am only getting the DEC form of the tag and not the CHARACTER values. In the PLC in a watch table when I look at the exact tag in DEC I get the value of 2565 but in CHAR I get DB 10 (FW part type). is there something I can do

Hello, I am evaluating VTScada for our facility and am working with the scadalight. I have not worked with Omron Plcs in many years and need some information.
My plc has some levels which are stored in a data area (ie D0700). The PLC resides on our network (ie From the program, I do know they set the port to 2120 instead of the default 9600. I am not sure which settings to use
I can successfully pull up the data into Excel using ODBC connection. The SQL statement like

select * from Alarms;

is working perfectly fine. The issue is when I use 'where' statement, I get an error. The following command is giving an error.

select * from Alarms where Active = 1;


select * from Alarms where 'Active' = 1;


select * from Alarms where Active = '1';

I am trying to integrate in a counter and some automated resets. The plant is currently changing the times of shifts a lot and I would like to allow them to configure on the fly. Is there a way I can change the trigger tag using parameterization? If so I cannot find any information on the exact syntax or how to do so.

I would like to know if there is a possibility to get the real-time information of the alarms that arrive in the system, via ODBC, a list of the alarms that arrived in a certain period of time. I've tried to understand the file alarm.db and Alarm.LOG, but it seems illegible to me. Can someone help me?

We cannot seem to get Alarm notifications to work with Office365. The smpt server is supposed to be, I'm told, but when we have this as the SMPT address using port 587 and TLS encryption we get the following error: "SendMail Error [9]: Server doesn't support authentication"

We do get alarm notifications if SMPT settings as follows: Email Server: {company}-com.mail.protectio

Dear Dave, Thanks.

Do you mean thru realm we can authenticate other users from same network? if yes then please forward the link to install odbc driver again, the one you sent is not working.

As I know ODBC is to link with third party like xlreporter.

but is it possible to run the application it self from the remote laptop? How, is it thru OPC client and server configuration? is it

Dear all,

I have installed VTSCADA light in a data logger (windows operating system) and link the logger to controller (modbus device) thru rs232.

Is there any solution to access from remote laptop?

Is ODBC or XLreporter provide this solution? is it free or at least demo for testing?



Having issues connecting to Siemens S7-1500 series PLC's using the Siemen's driver. I have an Allen Bradley unit that is working so I know my network and server is working.

Any help or examples or templates would be helpful. I am a PLC specialist looking at purchasing a entire system but want to get a real-world example to get approval to buy.

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?


I'm not a SCADA expert, but I want to know if is possible connect a WirelessHart gateway through Ethernet/IP directly to VTScada (without PLC).

The OEM of the gateway said that the WH devices are made available to the host systems via instrument list. This list contains one or more I/O cards. Every I/O card has one or more channels. Up to 6 field devices can be connected in multidrop mode to

Here is my situation:

My current application has both my sewer lift stations and water towers in one application.

My water plant operators need to see only the water towers and hear alarms for them. But my sewer lift stations create an almost continuous stream of alarms. This had led them to mute the entire system.


Is there a simple way to turn of alarm sounds for my s

When I RDP into the VTSCADA machine the window only fills half of the screen and cannot see the whole application. I can open other applications they work correctly and I can see the whole window. I don't think it is a RDP issue. Any thoughts?

I'm new to VT Scada, Scada in general.
We are currently migrating off a older machine that is using a PCI Dialogic for a voice modem.

Our new machine only has PCI express slots so I'm looking for a replacement that fits the new machine whether it be PCIe or USB.
We only have 1 phone line strictly for alerts.
I saw that US Robotics and others like TP-Link list in there specs that they
