New to VTscada trying to figure out how somethings are done in this environment.

Is there a tag type that is VTscada scoped? That is not being written back to a PLC.

For example if I wanted to create a VTscada tag that an operator could interact with to reset a totalizer tag, what type of tag would I use?

Our company is going to purchase a full version of VTScada but while I am waiting to get everything approved I was wondering if I could develop a tag database in VTScada light and transfer it to a full version of VTScada

I am working with a Siemens S7 TIA Portal program and I am trying to pull the part type from the PLC into the VTSCADA system. The issue I am having with the String I\O is I am only getting the DEC form of the tag and not the CHARACTER values. In the PLC in a watch table when I look at the exact tag in DEC I get the value of 2565 but in CHAR I get DB 10 (FW part type). is there something I can do
Keith Donaldson is an Engineer and Head of Business Management at the Trihedral office in Aberdeen, UK. In this tutorial, he explains how JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) works and why its role in modern SCADA systems continues to grow. Keith will demonstrate step-by-step how to configure the VTScada JSON driver and connect to third-party data. This will include using the JSON Parser to encode a
I am working on my first application for my city's water treatment plant and distribution system. I just noticed in the developers guide it states that digital control tags do not retain their values during app restarts. Most of our pumps are started and stopped manually and I do not want anything SCADA related to shut them down. Should I use Analog control tags set to 0 and 1 for this situat

I need to create an XY plot of the data from 2 tags but am having difficulty doing so. I have looked at the PlotXY function but am unsure of where to use it and how to get the arrays of data needed for the function.

I would like to use VTScadaLight to send process data to an OPC UA server so that other OPC UA compliant programs can have access to that data.

Does VTSLight support this functionality or do I require a fully licensed version of VTS?

If VTSLight does support this functionality is there documentation that describes how to configure it appropriately.

i`m using vtscada light version and i have Omron NJ series plc.when i trying to setting up plc with vtscada application,it shows only two series there.C/CV series and CS/CJ NJ series not supporting with vtsada?if support, how to add drivers?which one i need to select while adding drivers ?omron fins driver or omron host link plc?please let me know.thank you.

I attached an excerpt from the help files, but I would like to discuss it for a second.


If there is a single application on site, and we need a backup solution that is automatic AND shutting down and restarting the application isn't possible, is using windows file history an acceptable method for continuous backup?

It was not difficult to communicate a Koyo PLC with VTScada by means of Modbus TCP, being both, PLC and VTScada in the same LAN.
However, I have not been able to communicate them when the PLC is connected to a router outside the LAN of VTScada.
I typed a public IP address and the PLC port number when configured the TCP/IP port in the VTScada.
The resulting value of TCP/IP Port is -10,06

For a school I work on three small PLC controlled processes supervised by separate VTScada applications to manage
some food processing equipment (evaporator, powder dryer machine, autoclave) that the students have to learn to work with.

Is there a report tool for VTScada that enables me to document the details of the tags of these applications in an organized way for the project document

I am looking to display the following VIC Client information in a project:

Server Name client is connected to
Client Name
Logged in Windows username that the client is running on

For item 1 (Server Name) I am using the following expression which is working fine: \DisplayManager\RootSession\Name

How would I reference items 2 & 3 above?

Any Help is Appreciated

Found Solution

Open the PLC project in the S7 TIA Portal software.
Go to Project View
In the Project Tree window, select the device that is causing the error.
Hit Alt-Enter to bring up the Properties dialog.

Question posed on our website: Any work on supporting/offering OPC UA? MQTT? I like the internet server & redundancy. What I may want to do is integrate your product to display VTScada HMI screens. How do I populate the screen(s) with real time data? I have in place all the data acquisition & can provide it to your internet server(s) via??? I'm thinking in terms of Opto 22 HMI servers wh

Hi, I would like to put a numeric entry box somewhere in my application so that the alarm parameters (like low alarm setpoint) can be changed without the user having to go into the tag properties. Is it possible to reference these parameters outside the properties box? for example like how you can reference a tags value by using \Value

If that is not possible then is it possible to create a t
