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
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
Hi, Is there a way to edit a Type property from the VT HMI? Some users will not have access to the Tag Browser but may be required to change IP address which is set up as a property of the Site Type. I tried several methods to set up a Linked Tag Widget but have been unsuccessful.
I'm thinking that I may have to script it somehow but want to know if I'm missing something before I go down that
I am building a plant from scratch. The plant has different types of equipment and all I can see in VTScada are various pumps, valves, and motors. Has anyone built or have access to bar screens, conveyor belts, weir gates, or anything else that might be useful?
I'll be bringing up a replacement server for one that got a hit by lightening and I need to know the trick for getting VTscada to only poll the serial modbus connections from the active server in a redundant server config.
Hello, I am evaluating VTScada for our facility and am working with the scadalight. I have not worked with Omron Plcs in many years and need some information. My plc has some levels which are stored in a data area (ie D0700). The PLC resides on our network (ie 192.168.10.20). From the program, I do know they set the port to 2120 instead of the default 9600. I am not sure which settings to use
I am trying to integrate in a counter and some automated resets. The plant is currently changing the times of shifts a lot and I would like to allow them to configure on the fly. Is there a way I can change the trigger tag using parameterization? If so I cannot find any information on the exact syntax or how to do so.
Hello, I'm using VTScada Light for a POC (proof of concept) in my customer. The application works well for a fell minutes, but after this it lose the communication and doens't update the registers values. Is there anything to do to solve this problem?
Hello, I would like to know if there is a possibility to get the real-time information of the alarms that arrive in the system, via ODBC, a list of the alarms that arrived in a certain period of time. I've tried to understand the file alarm.db and Alarm.LOG, but it seems illegible to me. Can someone help me?
I have followed all instructions to connect Xlreporter to VTscada but without success! why is that? DSN is not connecting to VTscada at all! is there any support team that can have team viewer session to help or I may send change-set file to try?
Hello, I have a S7-1516F-3 and I have a question about tags.
I have a PLC with a lot of data blocks collecting the production counts and information. They PLC is connected to an HMI using symbolic addressing instead of absolute addressing. How can I access these tags?
