I am trying to get a Text to load a value of a main TAG. for example a AlarmHi attribute.

I have made some progress but I am having issues with the last little bit to get the final value.

The page has 2 parameters

The one way I can get the expression to work on the text is:

Format(7,1, Tag0\AlarmHi)

What I want to happen is in t

I downloaded VTScada to try out with a Delta PLC, Delta is what we primarily use. According to a PDF on Delta's website there should be the ability to add a Delta Driver in the Tag Browser. The Delta driver isn't listed as one I can add. Here are the instructions I found on Delta's website. Anyone figured this out?

Started creating tags that will be connecting to a Siemens PLC and I am getting an error about Tag Address I'm using. Can someone tell me what;s wrong with this PLC tag's address format?

Could there be an issue in the Siemen's tag driver settings?

Does VTScada's built in e-mail client meet the security requirements Google describe

Many of our customers are using gmail to send alarm notifications. We've upgraded some of them to VTScada and are not sure what will happen when google

I am receiving a value of 273 from the BACnet driver but within Wireshark capture I am getting no errors and can see the correct Value being returned.

Any idea why VTScada is giving out an error code of 273? The tag I created has no value which I am assuming since the driver is getting a value of 273 and not 0?

Here is what VTScada is showing:

but here is the proper value comin

Hi all,

This whole OT/ICS world is pretty new to me but I am trying to pick it up and work my way through it, but just looking for a bit of help with something.

I am trying to set up a virtual lab to demo how easy it can be for a hacker to change values and mess with OT equipment if the network is not correctly secure. Originally this was just with getting remote access to a private comp

I have noticed that if I am using a text box that I am unable to type ".00" to the end of a number, really any length of that .0, .000, etc. If I type it in the program automatically removes it.

It is a small thing but it creates uniform numbers when I have to list of a few of them and the rest have single or double decimal places.

If there is a way to turn that function off?

I am having a really difficult time getting the BACnet Driver to make a connection to an MGate 5217 from MOXA which is a BACnet to Modbus gateway. I am very new to VTScada light but I was able to get the Modbus driver on VTScada to work so I know I am close.

With the BACnet driver. I am not sure if the IP address of the UDP port should be the loopback IP address of ( or i

Using the tag scaling function does not allow for the 4mA offset of my 4-20mA loop field devices. I'm guessing that this needs to be allowed for by performing a calculation. I check the calculation box in the tag properties window, this causes the IO and scaling tabs to disappear and a calculations tab is substituted. There seems to be little guidance for using this feature. Perhaps I am on the w

I have an odd problem currently where I am trying to link a text to the output value of a multi-write tag. In the text properties I am setting it to 'linked tag properties' and then finding the appropriate tag and then selecting "OutputValue1" (I am assuming this would be the result of the value field in the 1st row of the output tags.)

The problem is that after I select this the

I have a site that has two RDP connections, currently both are being run as a 'service' type so I can access them via the webpage (anywhere client) and view the interface pages. The only issue is that I need to edit the graphics for these sites.

As far as I can find in the help documents one of these RDP's needs to be running as an application in order to access the graphics Idea Studio.

in the SQLQuery help page, there is a section "The current values of a tag may be retrieved using a table name with the format "TagName_Current". This table will have one row whose columns are Timestamp (the current time) and the current values of each logged value in the tag.".

How do I use the "TagName_Current"? Can you give me an example? Thanks.
