Is there a way to require an operator notebook entry when setting a value?
I have a bit that is used to bypass a process timer and would like to force the operator to enter a note when they use this. Currently I have an I/O and Calculations tag setup as a Digital[Out] and I'm using the Toggle Button to write a 1 to the bit when pressed.
I'm hoping to have it setup so when the operator p
I'm trying to use an Analog Summary report as an easy way to generate spreadsheets with min/max/avg/total measured hourly flow quantities for a user defined period. The analog summary report is tied to a tag that is written to once per hour with the calculated flow total for that hour.
The average/min/max values are correct and have been verified by comparing them to the "Raw Data" in the HD
We are building up a new application to replace an older SCADA system. We don't want both systems polling the end devices so VT's port tags are all disabled until we are ready to commission.
However, the modbus devices are still getting polled somehow. We see poll failures where there should be zero activity. When failing over to the backup server, we saw tens of thousands of polls attempte
I'm connecting an old Schneider Quantum PLC (311 10 controller ) ( 770 01 NOE card). I've set up the Port driver to read the PLC address 18.104.22.168 Port is 502 (I confirmed from the old HMI we were using that it is the correct port.) For the Driver I set to Modbus compatible device as per the VT Scada recommendations for that connection. I've left everything else standard as nothing looked o
Adding NoSplash = 1 did nothing. Neither did adding NoSplash on it's own without the = 1. Can someone whose done this confirm that it actually works? I don't want to bang my head against the wall trying to use something that's broken.
Pictured above, is an interval selection widget i created in version 12.1.25. Selecting each interval writes a value to a single tag via the set value PB. Depending on the which value is set from the button, another expression tag that will be high. As you can see above i have hour selected, this writes the value 2 to TCA_FASH_METER_VIEW. From there i have an expression on TCA_FASH_METER_V
New to VTScada, installed VTScada lite. Just starting out and having trouble making a connection to an SLC 5/05. I am proficient in Proficy ifix and Intouch. I may take the jump into VTSCADA if I can at least make my first connection. I have tried Port 2222 and 44818 and am using PCCC over CIP, Port path [1,0]. What am I missing here?
I commonly use VTScada to generate PDF charts etc. which it works great at. However occasionally when running a "standard report" it hangs up and the only way to resolve this is to disable the offending report tag and then enable again. I have not found a way to do this without going through the tag browser as the option to change this via th
Has bugged me for a while, however never spent time on looking into it... is this a bug or am I missing something?
When selecting one of the stock Images, i.e. arrows that have a blue infill, when I try to assign another colour to them it is as if the colours "merge" to make the resultant colour see below example, blue arrow, configured to yellow, shows green..
This seems like a simple problem, but I’m kind of beating my head against a wall here. I’m modifying an existing application on v11.3, which I believe doesn’t have the Allen Bradley CIP driver, so I’m stuck using the older CIP/ENIP driver. I have a direct Ethernet connection from the workstation to a new 5380 CompactLogix PLC, using port A2 (port A1 is be
Currently trying to create a calculation popup for CO2 Usage. I want the popup to show the current CO2 calc tag value along with a numeric entry where a variable tag within the calculation can be changed. It's currently greyed out, so it won't let me enter a value which I assume is because i have it linked to the variable tag that i need to edit. I have tried changing the tag type many times and
Is there a way to make a Alarm Acknowledge button that will Ack all the alarms in VTScada and send the Ack command to the PLC?
Currently we have layered the PLC Ack command button (momentary button) behind the build-in Acknowlegde All button, and we need to press it twice to Ack alarms in VTScada and in the PLC. Looking for a way to combine it in one button.
I have one computer that when I connect to the remote scada server using a web browser to the web address (i.e. http://22.214.171.124:88) the display is complete. However, when i use the VTSX client on the same computer many of the icons are not rendered and the topographical background is not present. At first i suspected a video driver update but the fact that it works with the web browser
I am trying to pull more tags from a P2-550 CPU from AutomationDirect. I looked through the PLC Program on productivity to see the data that VTScada should be pulling. However, it seems to be only pulling two tags from the CPU and not the rest. The tags show a value of 0 but should be showing numbers. I tried accessing Modbus Poll to see what would be the problem, but Modbus Poll isn't
Does anyone have a working example of a basic page using a gridlist function?
The example in the help documentation does not work when copy and pasted into my code, and I have been the extra things to get it working but in the end the Gridlist is not pulling the example list of Data[#][#] or Title[#] information past the first inputs.
