Hello everyone,

I'm a beginner with raspberry pi and also to Python language. I'm trying to use the raspberry pi 3 for industrial application and for that I've connected quite a few sensors (temperature, humidity, co2 etc.) I'm successfully able to get reading from the individual sensors and wrote a structured program with few functions related to each sensors to get reading from all the sens

For Testing Purposes, I would like to Enable or Disable an Automatic SilenceSound() Function so that I hear 5 seconds of the Alarm Alert sounds and then they are Silenced without Operator intervention. I don't want to Acknowledge or take any other Actions.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Thanks, Paul H. Bott, P.E.

With Analog Status you have High and Low alarm setpoints built in so you don't have additional setpoint tags go against your tag count. How do you then refrence these setpoints inside the digital status tag to a numeric entry so that users can changes these without having to go into tag browser?

Is this the design that for adjustable setpoints in HMI it requires tags (that go against the cou

Hi there,

I have recently ventured into trying VTSCADA and I really REALLY like it.

I use scada systems for very simple lab based data aquisition and control. Very seldom more than 15 tags.

My challenge is that I need to aquire a timestamp ONLY when a certain tag value changes. The tag is basically a totaliser (Analog input from MCU). This is very simple to do in the likes of SCADABR

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

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!

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

HI,
I'm thinking about changing vehicles, I currently have a Xsara Picasso Gasoline 90 Cv. I want to buy a C4 Picasso Diesel, I think the one that better fits me is the 110 HP, but I have the doubt between the manual change or the CMP, I have heard some comment, about the latter, and I have doubts. Can somebody help me????
Thanks

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

We are installing VTSCADA for the first time in our district and will be setting it up on two Windows 2016 Virtual Servers. Is there any documentation I can give our IT contractor for setting up these servers for running the HMI?

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.

How do you control how often the plot data widget updates? It's fine on the local machine, but the internet clients have a slow connection. The plots show "data retrieval in progress" more often than they show the plot line. I'd like to slow it down specifically on the clients, but would be OK setting it slower on the project if that's the only way.

I have a client that likes the "arc" gauge widget. I can't figure out the decimal formatting on that one. Some tags display a decimal, while others show a whole number.

Some of the gauges let you specify the number of digits to display after the decimal. How can I set that on the arc gauge? Is there an expression to use?

I was just wondering, if I have a numeric entry widget to write a SP to a PLC tag and a momentary PB how could I use the PB to change the value in the numeric entry?

What I was going to do is use the numeric entry widget to write an RPM SP to a vfd and use the momentary PB as a stop button for the motor but when I push the stop button I want the numeric entry value to be 0 instead of the las
