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

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 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 ?

I need to display a history statistics tag in the runtime &, when the operator clicks on it, open historical data viewer to open up & display that history statistics tag's source.

I was able to do this but what I came up with feels too clumsy.

I've created a group of display widgets with pop-ups disabled in the history statistic tag, with pop-ups enabled in the I/O & calculati

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?

What's the best way to display a History Statistics (HistStats) tag to 3 decimal places?

I setup my HistStats tag to calculate a rolling avg from an instrument reading. It's doing what I need except It displays the results default to two decimal points & I need three.

When I bring up my HistStats tag's properties and go to the Display tab the only option there is a place to link to a
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 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!

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

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.

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?
