Hi Guys. I'm installing VTScada in place of another SCADA system and need a way to replicate the old watchdog functionality that they were using. Currently, their old SCADA system toggles a bit for each RTU, based on a set interval, and that bit is tied to a point in the RTU that will cause an alarm on site, if the bit stops toggling (loss of comms).

I believe I will need to do this using sc

One of our clients that we recently converted from WW (yay!) is going to upgrade servers soon. Wondering what the method is to transfer existing license from one PC/Server to another. The license was just purchased and is still under support. Thanks!

Our application style is a container one having three windows:

Top: Toolbar with several subsystems, each having submenu action buttons. Action button change the graphic represented in middle window
Middle: Graphic application area
Botton: Alarms
Is it possible to create a VTScada application with this shape?

See examples in attached images:

Hi,

We have been unable to configure our ModbusTCP driver to 0 address offset. Can you please advise?
We did the following:
1) Make a Context Tag (which will be the parent of the TCP driver)
2) Go to Settings, and add a property: "ModiconTypedAddr1Offset". We set the value to 0.

We have also been unable to write to coils. Could you provide an example of how to write specific bit

Scenario:

Redundant server configuration (Primary + Backup)
Primary server online and working OK
Backup server ready but in standby mode (no coms/history..)
Several Operator Workstation on local network
The operators normally logged in Primary server
Then, primary server shuts down by any anomaly or forced event.

The question is how the Operator Workstations recover connection with Backup

The VTScada on my laptop will not run as an application.

Every time I try to launch it, I get

Error "VTScada is currently running as a service"

"Starting VTScada as an application requires stopping the service, which could disrupt other users or the operation of this installation.

It is recommended that configuration be performed on a machine that doesn't host a VTScada service.

Hello,

I am having a problem reading tags from my OPC Server using VTScada Light. The server is located on an external PC and the connection to the client PC is made through DCOM. I know the DCOM configuration is correct because I can use Matrikon OPC Explorer on the client PC to read all the servers and tags on the external PC. I just can't replicate this within VTScada. This first screensho

This is a question I was asked by a customer recently:

Q – What is the easiest way to do a daily pump run report for 5 years?

A – The built-in Pump Activity Report should work. It provides you with activity over the entire time frame, not daily over x years. You'd have to run it for the previous day and then have (5*365) = 1825 previous periods. Not allowing for leap years.

Is CSV Import to Historian supported on VTScadaLight?

I am trying to import historic data from CSV files into some tag history. I followed all the instructions on the process, but when I restart the application, it does not load the CSV files after loading and starting the tags.

I have the CSVHistory directory in my application's Data directory, I added the TagMapping.CSV file and the on

Hey everyone.

I am trying to use excel to read the tag values from my application, in the example in this link https://www.trihedral.com/help/Content/D_DataSharing/D_DDEServer.htm

It says to use
=VTS|'AppName'!'TagName\Value'

For my application I would think it would be
=VTS|'HMI'!'DUPREE_WTP_DRIVER\DUP_HSP1_PDAY_RT\Value'

HMI being the app name and then the tag

Single Application on 3 different Servers that are connected via radio link.

Call them ServerA, ServerB, ServerC

3 PLCs (actually more but this is good enough) each PLC is located in proximity to its similar server

Call them PLCA, PLCB, PLCC

Default configuration is ServerA - if primary does polling to PLCA, PLCB, PLCC. If ServerA goes down ServerB takes over all communication a

We have an application in which the customer wishes to rearm priority 1 alarms if they stay in the alarm state for an extended period. He also would like the rearmed alarm to re-send a notification upon rearming. I have not seen anything in the manual about this being possible, but all attempts of trying it did not work. The alarm would in fact rearm, but no new notifications were sent. I had

We are trying to establish a connection from our clients on a local network to the primary application server. Firewalls have been disabled and I am using a LAN network for testing. Upon trying to use the access anywhere URL for our application the browser shows a window that states "establishing connection" and will not progress past this point. Any suggestions on what may be causing this is gre
