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
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

ok the scada software where im at now is on windows server 2008. im trying to get it upgraded but finance is killing me. anyway my question is can I use the old tags in scada im using now and plug them into vtscada 90 day trial. can you plug and play kind of thing or do I need to go through and add all I/Os.

We currently are looking for a possible way to compile all the exported data that is collected into a nice easy to read template, keeping it as user friendly of a process as possible. I myself am very new to VTScada so I thought this would be the best place to come, has anyone found any cool solutions to this issue at all? These are all water treatment facilities so they're primarily use X amount

I've created a Numeric Keypad popup page (meant to be touchscreen friendly) and have created a GUIButton that when pressed is supposed to Close the Popup Window. I thought the Slay(Self()) should work but it seems to be ignored. It should be a simple thing but I've been stuck on this for a while now. I'll have to close the window after the user presses my "Enter" button as well. The "Close Page"

Could you please assist me with an analog tag. I want to use the slider control to change the value of an analog input tag , this analog input tag is connected to a tank widget to give level indication.

I got it to work more than a year ago, but for some reason, it stopped working.

Im using a Click Koyo PLC and modbus addressing.The drivers are working as all the digital inputs responds.

I am trying to calculate flow rate as a function of change of wet well level over time. I have tried using various tags types, adaptations of Ex 3-17 from the Adv Config Workbook, Intgr and Deriv functions; and everything comes up with some kind of errant data: Intgr gave max scale value, Deriv gave 0. Using the following provided the most realistic results:

"[PUMP_RUN] == 1 ? Latch(AbsTime(

So the system I’m currently working on is already providing me scaled data coming out of the flow computer. This is also in conjunction to the scaling of the raw data at the PLC level for my other analog instruments.

What is the best way to make sure I’m setting up my analog status tags properly so I’m getting the right historical data recording and displaying my data prope
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?

Finding a voice modem has become a struggle.

Finding voice drivers for windows 10 a hassle.

Here's a page of reference conexant drivers you can force windows 10 to use. You'll have to use the Browse my computer, then Let me Pick, then Have Disk, or it will claim the voiceless microsoft driver is newer and therefore better.

Is there a way to get shell execute to be OS dependant.
My ping button wont work in the android client.

We cannot seem to get Alarm notifications to work with Office365. The smpt server is supposed to be, I'm told, but when we have this as the SMPT address using port 587 and TLS encryption we get the following error: "SendMail Error [9]: Server doesn't support authentication"

We do get alarm notifications if SMPT settings as follows: Email Server: {company}-com.mail.protectio

We are working on setting up HMIs (10 pack) for our local control panels; dual servers are setup with application, screens, and tags (designated with areas). We have looked at the tag area filtering literature, but are apparently lacking something on server/HMI architecture as we do not have all the options in "Workstation" and "Section" options in properties.

Is there a best practice for se

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
