We have 4 computers on the same network at a single location, none of them have internet access and the times on the computers will tend to float away from each other. Is there a way to sync all 4 using VTScada somehow? Basically just need to have one common time across all stations if possible.
Is it possible to run two applications at the same time on the same PC? I have two apps that are at the 50 tag limit and I get errors when trying to run both apps. Is this a limitation and am I limited to just one app? Thanks
I have a device that sends status updates on a Modbus network. I have successfully connected to it and can access the registers. However, there is a status register that stores the system status as an integer that I need to decode into a binary word. I then need to be able to access each bit of the word to determine the system status. How can I accomplish this? I'm new to working with SCADA and t
I have some data points that I need to put in a report, but I only need to show those values every 15 minutes that the process is in a certain step (A pump is running). The report will be ran at the end of the month and will cover the entire month.
I would prefer to have those points logged continuously for trending and so the customer can look back at any time and see what the value was whet
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
Hi community, is there a way to clear the logged trend plot line data. I want to keep storage on the host pc to a minimum and do not want this file to get too large. Keeping data for a long time is not a priority so I would like to delete the logged data periodically. Thank you.
Hi community. I am trying to use a calculation tag to determine the bit status of an analog value. I cannot seem to get the syntax correct to put in the expression. I found the code snippet below but I think that may be for scripting not expressions...not sure Is there any documentation on functions and syntax for these expressions? trying [value] && 4 does not work to find the statu
I am working on a project where I need to setup communication between VTSCADA and an Allen Bradley SLC504 using a DH+ to EtherNet/IP Gateway (Prosoft AN-X2-AB-DHRIO). I am lost on how to set this up with the drivers and ports.
Hello vt scada community. New user here. I am looking for assistance to create several digital tags based off the value of a single Modbus register. For example, register 40001 value =1 is "pump running". Same register 40001 value =2 is "pump stopped". How can I accomplish this with minimal tag usage? Thank you
I need to create a report that will display the lowest value that a tag registered throughout an entire day, along with the time that occurred. On top of that I need to display this information for the entire month.
I really do not know how to approach this at the moment.
I thought about using the standard report type since I believe it dumps all the available data into the report, and th
Perhaps this is a really dumb question but the new High Performance Widgets (the "bar" ones) still have the initial default yellow diamond on them and since we're unable to edit these widgets, I haven't figured out how to remove them. Am I missing something or is this a temporary glitch?
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
It appears as though you cannot pass a Universal IO - String Calculation tag configured as a string to a Script tag.
Changing the Universal tag to a Numeric Calculation, but keeping the value as a string, works just fine, the Script is able to use the parameter's string value. Downside of this is that the value of the tag does not show in the tag browser.
Seems to be a little issue with the ShowUnits property on the Control Valve (Dynamic) Widget. If set to true the unit is "PercentLabel" if % or "hrLabel" if hr or "psiLabel" if psi or.... well, you get the idea.
Can someone explain how to make a copy an existing application. I want to try different settings but don't want to screw up my current application.
When adding an application using the advanced option, I would think that I would want to clone from Changeset but then it warns to not re-install a changeset if the application still exists on this or another server.
I have both a hp printer and a scanner. My printer's USB port has been damaged so I decided to connect my printer with a wireless connection. It wanted a WPS pin on hp printer at that time and I found the pin after searching many websites and then connected my printer. But after that, my scanner stopped working, I tried a lot to solve that problem but failed. What should I do now?
Just a heads up that Excel has a limit of 31 characters for table names. This means that if you make a tag type with a name longer than 31 characters and export the tags to Excel, you will have a problem.
Excel will tag the tag type name and rename it to Sheet1. Or truncate it some other fashion. You make changes to the tags in that tag type and import the changes. Since VTScada can no longer
