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?

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

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

Is there any way to rename a type? I can't figure out a way through the application configuration or through export & sync. I have tried exporting and changing the name on the VTS_Reserved tab and deleting the export info and data fields but that didn't seem to work.

Alternatively, is there an easy way to make a copy of a type?

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi

I need to integrate Waspmote wireless sensors to an industrial control system.

We have purchased two waspmotes and a meshlium gateway. I have got the data from the waspmotes into the meshlium and can access the database within the meshlium from a MySQL client.

What I need to do is get the data from the meshlium into another piece of software that will run on an industrial HMI. Init

I was wondering if there is a list of all the keyboard shortcut keys. Over the years I have found that learning the shortcut keys will save you a lot of time in the long run so I am a big fan. In particular right now I am working in the Idea Studio and in other programs you might use "Ctrl-G" to group the selected objects or "Ctrl-U" to ungroup them. Another might be "Alt-Down Arrow" to evenly s

This is one of those distinctions that is easy for us to take for granted because we work with VTScada every day. It came up a few times at the ACE 2017 conference in Philadelphia.

VTScada Thick Client Licenses are each installed on individual Windows computers. Every VTScada application needs at least one installed Thick Client license. A separate license is required for each PC that has VTS

This question recently came to the Contact Us form on our website and we realized that we were not doing enough to explain this unique and important feature.

So Dave Spencer created this video to explain VTScada ChangeSet files. ChangeSets are the preferred distribution and update method when the development computer and customer computer are not on the same network.

This is also a great

I upgraded a small test system from VTScada Lite 11.2.25 to 11.2.29 and noticed the Anywhere client no longer functions. However the VIC and MIC all still function properly.

This test system is installed on Windows 10 x64 and has all applicable windows updates installed. I uninstalled 11.2.29 and re-installed 11.2.25 and the Anywhere client functions as it should.

This is a recent question to our support team:
I received a pop-up warning when trying to start VTScada. When I click OK, it starts the VTScada Application Manager (VAM). This is the warning. "The performance counter registry hive is corrupted. Some WorkstationStatus functions may not work. Click OK for next warning or Cancel to clear all warnings." Is there anything I need to worry about goin
