I recently downloaded VTScadaLIGHT in order to test a prototype device. I am writing to Modbus registers 40001 - 40010, and splitting my floating point values into 16 bit unsigned integers. How would I union them back together in VTScadaLIGHT as a floating point value?
ex) 40001 = 16 bit unsigned int 40002 = 16 bit unsigned int
Hi, is there a way to update a custom report without having to restart the application?
I've been playing with some custom reports in VTScada. Currently, adding a new report won't require the application to restart, but adding or removing a report would require the application to start after clicking Import File Change. This becomes quite time consuming if I need to make/test small chang
I created a tag and then deleted it, but wanted to remake the tag again later after making some changes in a template tag. When I tried to recreate the tag I got the following error message, "A module or variable with the same name already exists. Please enter another name for this tag".
I am guessing that this error can be corrected so I can make another tag with the same name by deleting th
Hi, I'm fairly new to setting up a system with VTScada, I'm using VTS 12 Lite to monitor and control small monitoring stations. The monitoring stations have the ability to detect a communications failure and save data locally. Is it possible to have this data uploaded into VTS automatically for display in the HDV?
I have seen this done before however, the situation was that there were propri
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
We are logging data at a jobsite and are concerned that the PC will run out of memory without us realizing it was running low. We would like to be able to check the c: drive for space available. I had found the DriveInfo, but am not sure where to integrate that function.
Has anyone ever used a Prosoft AN-X2 module with VTScada? I have one here working with RSlinx as well as Kepware, but trying to get the intrinsic Allen Bradley ControlLogix Ethernet driver to work with it and having no luck.
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
In this tutorial we discuss the variants of the Modbus protocol, common use-cases, and how it differs from other communication protocols. We outline hardware and software requirements for VTScada Modbus integration and demonstrate step-by-step configuration of a Modbus comm link.
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.
