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.

As well, using the legacy Calcula

Is it possible to build a tag that can determine the elevation of my facility based upon the coordinantes in the parent site tag?

Or is it possible build a widget that references the Long. and Lat. of the parent site tag to determine site's elevation?

Thanks in advance!

I'm trying to install VtSCADAlight on Windows 10 Pro version 1809 and having a great deal of trouble.

I've installed it on two Windows 7 workstations easily but the Windows 10 station somehow becomes disabled during the process and I have to recover using System Restore.

Another thread in this forum suggests than an overly aggressive antivirus program may be at fault. I think I've disable

Programming question:

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, the PLC my VTSCada system talks to sends out a digital status heartbeat (boolean) alternating true/false with a period of 20 seconds.

I would like to configure VTScada to monitor this signal so that the user is notified when the PLC goes down or communications is lost.

I've read through the alarm configuration section of the manual and devised this scheme involving two alarm ta

Hello, thank you in advance for any support.

I am developing my first application, a demo system for a small municipality. The first page I am working on is for a little pump station with two pumps and a reservoir with level sensor.

Things are progressing reasonably well but I am having a few problems:


I'd like some text below my pump icon to say either "hand" or "auto" depending o

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

If you seem to have lost your VIC graphics after accepting Windows build 1903, we are looking into it. As a workaround, stop the VIC. Open Internet Explorer and clear the cache.

Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Trihedral, right click on the VTSX.exe and run it as administrator - even if you are an administrator.

Log in and run it once. Close it. You should be able to run it normally from your

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?

Thanks in advance!
