We suddenly lost the ability to acknowledge alarms on our system and we are not sure why. We have stopped/started the software and that has not helped. We have also notice a slight delay in receiving some of our alarms. Any suggestions?
We are testing this scada system. It's really nice. We have made an application with 20 tags, and we want to have access to it from an external network through the vpn solution, is it possible? When we try to connect using the get from workstation option and setting the ip for vpn we get an unavailable workstation message.
Any advise on address tags for a s7-1200 example Tank level located at DB45.4 its a real (float) address and a Boolean address of say DB45.DBX1.4 I have tried multiple ways but I keep getting a 256 error saying bad address. Maybe an integer to like DB6.INT46. I read the help file and tried the 3 differnt ways but kept saying wrong 256
I have a String Entry connected to a String I/O tag. The value of the String I/O is now my name. If I click it, it becomes editable. But I want it to be locked, uneditable and unselectable. I can toggle Enable Output on the String I/O, this prevents editing. But the blinking dash is still there. I have tried making a opaque square on top of the text, that can
I have a large mobile treatment facility that has not been operated in 4 or 5 years. I just recently refurbished the entire set up and went to launch the scada computer only to find out it is completely shot. I have an old back up of the scada folder but it does not tell me what SCADA program was used to develop. I am hoping that I can utilize VT Scada to import the old programming but have no id
I think there is some bug related to the Selector Switches. I have spent countless hours on this, and by accident found a way to make it work. Meaning this must be some bug.
If I make more than a couple Selector Switches, the next one appear with no data. Like 40310 below. I have the exact same settings, because I copy the working Switch. I only change the adress. Scanning
I would like to use a variable that counts the number of active alarms.

I want to know where should we use SetBit Function and how it can be used. The syntax SetBit(Tag, 2, 1); is not working in my system. Please let me know the correct syntax and where it should be written.
I have made some custom widgets with several settings, digital- and analog tags. I now entered a problem. See the widget below:
I will animate the dash-bar to move up and down according to some analog value, this is no problem. But I want everything outside the dark box to be invisible. Inserting the widget to a page makes it look like this: But I want it to look like this:
Why can't I use the same expression for controlling opacity on Numeric Values and images.
(Scale(Analog_verdi\LowWarning\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1) || Scale(Analog_verdi\HighWarning\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1)) && !(Scale(Analog_verdi\HighAlarm\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1) || Scale(Analog_verdi\LowAlarm\Value, 0, 1, 0, 1))
I controll the opacity on a Numeric Value and on a Text Value, and it looks like this, an
Is there any way to have the Numeric Entry Text box clear the contents of the entry box when the operator places the cursor in the box?
Currently, where ever the cursor is placed within the entry box that is where the cursor lands, so before the decimal ... after the decimal ... and with some operators at the helm they are not recognizing where the cursor lands and they just start typing the
I was wondering how the multi color widget works with a single digital input. For some reason I can't figure out how it works. I seen in the programmers guide on how to do it with an analog input and triggers but I couldn't find it used with a digital input.
Basically I was just going to take one digital input tag from my Allen bradley plc and use the multi color widget to display when it i
I am new to VTScada, and I want to monitor our networked PCs at home.
I used workstation tags but the only one that is working is the local PC where VTScada is currently installed (I have it in 2 laptops but it doesnt work, although I can see them in the dropdown menu when I first configured the workstation tag.
Am I missing some steps? For example, do I need to create a parent comms tag
VTScada should work with any standard voice modem. Though we cannot guarantee the compatibility of third-party modems across all Windows operating systems, our engineers have provided the following comments on modems that they have used or have been used by our customers.
We provide this list simply as a place to start when researching modems. We have no relationship with these manufacturers
I am trying to communicate with an SNMP-enabled Ethernet switch. I added a Driver which is connected to a UDP Port, which requires a local and remote port #. Should it be 161 for both? I have imported the MIB file and created a tag, but the driver is not communicating.
This is one of those distinctions that is easy for us to take for granted because we work with VTScada every day. It came up a few times at the ACE 2017 conference in Philadelphia.
VTScada Thick Client Licenses are each installed on individual Windows computers. Every VTScada application needs at least one installed Thick Client license. A separate license is required for each PC that has VTS
This question recently came to the Contact Us form on our website and we realized that we were not doing enough to explain this unique and important feature.
So Dave Spencer created this video to explain VTScada ChangeSet files. ChangeSets are the preferred distribution and update method when the development computer and customer computer are not on the same network.
Each new version of VTScada introduces new tools and sometimes changes how older features work. Your VTScada license entitles you to upgrades for a period of time after purchase. (Maintaining a Support Plus contract provides unlimited upgrades.) You can find the end date of your paid upgrade period in the About dialog, accessible from the VTScada Application Manager.
This is a recent question to our support team: I received a pop-up warning when trying to start VTScada. When I click OK, it starts the VTScada Application Manager (VAM). This is the warning. "The performance counter registry hive is corrupted. Some WorkstationStatus functions may not work. Click OK for next warning or Cancel to clear all warnings." Is there anything I need to worry about goin
Sync'ing the clock on a PLC with the VTSCada computer time comes up fairly often. Depending on the requirements of the PLC, there are a number of ways to do this. The easiest way for all of them require using a trigger tag in the VTScada application that will trigger at a known time. For now, call this TriggerTimeSync and set an On schedule for 01:01 am and off 2 seconds later with no off schedul
