Wondering if anyone has managed to setup VTS within a Docker container or similar.

Ultimately, my goal is to be able to run multiple versions of VT simultaneously. As an integrator I have some apps on 12.1.19, others running 12.0.56 and then a few others that I support. I would improve my efficiency if I can be working on different projects at the same time without having to shutdown one ins

Complete newbie here and am self teaching myself VTScada and SCADA in general. I am getting a float variable back from the MODBUS expressed in exponential form. I now need to convert this to its actual value that the float represents. Is there a function in VTScada that does this or do I need to write a function to go to binary, decodes the binary and then convert back to decimal.

I'd like to be able to allow the operator to disable alarms and adjust alarm priorities from the HMI itself without having to navigate the settings. Are there widgets I can use to accommodate this?

hello everyone

I have been configuring the software so that clients have remote access to my vtscada program, I bought the domain, ssl certificate, and followed the configuration in detail according to Dave Spencer's video on VtScada's youtube channel, but I can only view my program on other computers on the local network.

At the end of the video, in my program, in the "Thin Client / Serv

Hello Team,

We are working on reading the data using VTScada REST queries. While working History_TPPvalue tables we are trying to read Average values. While comparing the result in the Tag browser we found that the values are not the same. I have attached the screenshot for Historical Data Viewer and also the txt file with the REST query and its response. Could you

I built a Lufkin SAMS controller inside of my VTScada and it automatically built all the TAG's as either Analog Status or Digital Status TAG's (Legacy TAG's) I am trying to set the lowlow / low / high / highhigh limits for the Analog Status points but I found that these types only allow for a Low/High alarm, but in the support document the picture used for this TAG is the Calculations I/O Analog

I have been trying to set up a connection between VTScadaLite and a Allen Bradley plc using Ethernet/Ip. From what I can gather I am using the correct driver and tag set up. But the digital [IN] does not register a value coming from the PLC.

The PLC can be pinged and ports have been enabled with all firewalls turned off.

The running PLC program is being monitored using the CCW s

Testing VT SCADA (the light version) to see if it can be used to manage several irrigation canal systems using Control Design CD120 RTU's. These are FM radio devices. They have a range of registers (47033-423039) designated for floating point value storage. These are 32 bit (4 byte) registers.

For example, modbus ID 20, register 47033 (0-based) currently contains the value 1.4839. A quer

I wanted to reach out to others to see if they have been having similar issues. I'm located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama at the Hilliard Fletcher Wastewater Treatment Plant. I've got a few different ways to access VTScada, but the one way that has been giving us all fits has been accessing VTScada through the Anywhere Client. Our plant operators access VTScada through Anywhere Client. I can access thro

Can I get some help in defining a SQL Driver template for pulling values from another VTScada system?

ODBC driver is installed, user account with remote data permissions created, realm created, DSN defined, connection verified.

There is no option in the database type list for VTScada. What should be chosen here?

I made a probably incorrect assumption that a query should follow the for

I am trying to connect and pull data from a multismart via modbus. I can ping the IP address of the multismart and the Modbus address for the driver is 1, but I am getting an error code of 260 from the IP address and an error code of 531 on the driver. I tried connecting to the multismart with a modbus scanner via TCP/IP but I cannot pull any data from the registers.

When dealing with a GUIText inside of a widget I can see from the help document that there is the Options section that allows for control of font size. The only issue I have is that the options are for;

change based off vertical scaling of the page
scale to topmost scaling, ie. the page
