We are testing the VT Scada Light. I am trying to connect it with a energy measurement system using Modbus over TCP/IP directly from PC.

I created the tag using 'TCP IP Port' -> 'Modbus Compatible Device' -> 'Analog Input' and didn´t get the communication.

Followed the basic configuration done:

TCP IP Port: Adress: 192.168.1.12 Port: 502

Modbus Compatible Device: S

Hello,

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

union of 4001 and 40002 = Floating point

When setting up a modem for call out alarming for VTScada on a virtual server, is there documentation available that can be used as a guide during set up?

Looking for something that I can give a customers IT manager. Trying to follow best practice, make sure the set up is done correctly, and all needed steps are followed.

Hi,

I am new to VTScada and experimenting with VTScada light. Did a setup using Pumps and values.

I have a tag let us say > Local TCP Port\PLCSim\Pump 1 \ Motor Speed with current value 500.

Is there any way to set this value to 1000 by using some external programming (Not through manual dials)?

I do see the REST interface provides read capability for these tags, but NOT the w

Hi VTScada Support.

I have two questions,


I have an Ethernet/IP to Data Highway Plus Converter it is ANC-100e (https://automation-networks.com/automation-networks-anc-100e-2).

It works as a controllogix gateway with a 1756 ENET and a 1756 DHRIO.

Can we work with your software? We use PCCC not CIP.

And if there is a way can you tell me how or where to look for a guide or manual?

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

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?

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.
