I just started a job at a wind power company. They want me to determine what is required to develop a SCADA system of our own to save from the licensing expense of their current vendor. I have no experience in this area and hope that I can draw from the collective experience on this forum. Our turbines already have the hardware in place: sensors, PLC, controller, etc. They have a working
I have recently downloaded and installed VT SCADA on my desktop. We are about to purchase the full version and I want to do some training and testing at my desk. I have installed in on two other computers and it works fine. But for some reason on my desktop it shows the start splash screen and then just shuts down and closes before it actuals starts the program. The desktop is fairly new
I have a successful linked ODBC server on a SQL Server. I use a DSN in the connection string which has the necessary credentials. I can successfully pull data into Database tables using SQL Server Agent or directly running queries against it in SQL Server Management Studio. I always use OPENQUERY Function in a stored procedure to access data from the linked server so that I can pass in p
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.
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

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.
