Good morning,

Little quirk I noticed this morning - When using the Vertical Analog Bar High Performance Widget (VT12) the setpoint only allows you to choose a tag. It should allow the selection of a parameter, linked tag property or expression.

In my particular case I wanted to select a linked tag. This was accomplished by just choosing the tag (that I would like to have linked too) and t

I believe I know the answer to this but figured I'd ask anyways. Is it possible to do a lookup table in VTSCADA?

I have a customer that wants some live calculations done that are currently done in an Excel spreadsheet, some of which involves a lookup table.

Even if I have to do something external and pass the result back into VTSCADA. Can VTSCADA read from an Excel spreadsheet through scr

I am looking for some direction on creating a Data Grid in VTSCADA
that can poll from the historian.
There is an example in the Oil & Gas Suite for the flow computer history.

Any help would be appreciated

I have a device that sends status updates on a Modbus network. I have successfully connected to it and can access the registers. However, there is a status register that stores the system status as an integer that I need to decode into a binary word. I then need to be able to access each bit of the word to determine the system status. How can I accomplish this? I'm new to working with SCADA and t

I have some data points that I need to put in a report, but I only need to show those values every 15 minutes that the process is in a certain step (A pump is running). The report will be ran at the end of the month and will cover the entire month.

I would prefer to have those points logged continuously for trending and so the customer can look back at any time and see what the value was whet

We currently are looking for a possible way to compile all the exported data that is collected into a nice easy to read template, keeping it as user friendly of a process as possible. I myself am very new to VTScada so I thought this would be the best place to come, has anyone found any cool solutions to this issue at all? These are all water treatment facilities so they're primarily use X amount

I have a 4 position switch in the PLC
I need a 4 position switch to write to the PLC from Trihedral ver 12
so that it is not maintained and will match the one in the PLC

I assume I need a widget to provide an analog out to write a analog value to the PLC but I am not sure how to do it.

Can anyone help me here?

Can someone explain how to make a copy an existing application. I want to try different settings but don't want to screw up my current application.

When adding an application using the advanced option, I would think that I would want to clone from Changeset but then it warns to not re-install a changeset if the application still exists on this or another server.

I have both a hp printer and a scanner. My printer's USB port has been damaged so I decided to connect my printer with a wireless connection. It wanted a WPS pin on hp printer at that time and I found the pin after searching many websites and then connected my printer. But after that, my scanner stopped working, I tried a lot to solve that problem but failed. What should I do now?

Just a heads up that Excel has a limit of 31 characters for table names. This means that if you make a tag type with a name longer than 31 characters and export the tags to Excel, you will have a problem.

Excel will tag the tag type name and rename it to Sheet1. Or truncate it some other fashion. You make changes to the tags in that tag type and import the changes. Since VTScada can no longer

I've set up a system for a customer that includes alarm notifications on Priority 1 Alarms. They would like a 2nd set of text message notifications for a smaller subset of alarms for the C-Suite - they just want to receive a text message only if one of their assets stops running. Is there a way to implement this?

Currently I think that there may be two ways that might work:
