It appears as though you cannot pass a Universal IO - String Calculation tag configured as a string to a Script tag.
Changing the Universal tag to a Numeric Calculation, but keeping the value as a string, works just fine, the Script is able to use the parameter's string value. Downside of this is that the value of the tag does not show in the tag browser.
I am working on a project where I need to setup communication between VTSCADA and an Allen Bradley SLC504 using a DH+ to EtherNet/IP Gateway (Prosoft AN-X2-AB-DHRIO). I am lost on how to set this up with the drivers and ports.
I'm using an Analog output (VTS Datatype) writing to a PLC DINT by way of a "Numeric Input" on the page to allow user to enter a passcode (EQU in PLC) to permit the action of a selector switch, right below the numeric input box.
When you enter the correct number, "it is retained in the VTS tag browser" and will work okay. But I need a way to clear it out after a minu
Hello friends, I have a serious problem. VTS does not open on the server. I have two servers, one is a backup of the other, VTS only starts if the network cables are disconnected, clicking on RUN locks in 50% in the final step "Starting tags". Does anyone know how to solve?
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
I am working with an Omron Cj2H. Programmed analog inputs and reading into a DM. Positive values are performing okay, but as soon as I go slightly negative ( reverse flow), then the number jumps to 65535. This is telling me it is wrapping around. I have tried using negative values in the scaling, but have not been successful at this point. I can watch the channel in the plc and it remains nega
I am building a plant from scratch. The plant has different types of equipment and all I can see in VTScada are various pumps, valves, and motors. Has anyone built or have access to bar screens, conveyor belts, weir gates, or anything else that might be useful?
