Hey all, Just looking for some input on modifying the GE series 90 driver to accept symbolic tags. If this can be managed I can cut out an intermediary OPC client and just run everything through VTScada.
I've created a Custom Type that contains five analog tags - Value, EU_Max, EU_Min, L_Alarm, H_Alarm. Their PLC addresses are based on a custom Parameter called 'BaseAddress'. Address expression example:
\baseaddress + ".Value"
I've also tried:
Pickvalid(Concat(..\baseaddress, ".Value), "")
I am running the micro800 simulator on Allen Bradley's CCW software. It appears that you support micro800 PLC's using the Symbolic CIP driver, however when I try to use the AB CIP driver demo downloaded from your site, the connection blinks green and does not stay on. I have the simulator running on CCW with a basic start/stop logic. Please let me know if there is something specific that I need t
I recently downloaded VTScadaLIGHT in order to test a prototype device. I am writing to Modbus registers 40001 - 40010, and splitting my floating point values into 16 bit unsigned integers. How would I union them back together in VTScadaLIGHT as a floating point value?
ex) 40001 = 16 bit unsigned int 40002 = 16 bit unsigned int
If I open the Historical Data Viewer page and turn a tag's trend visibility off by clicking the eyeball icon and then close the page, the trend visibility is set to disabled globally. You go to a page showing that tag's value and click on it to open the plot and it is not visible. Not only that, but any other user will also have that tag's plot not be visible.
I have created a new Type in Context tag and created this with Create new Type. Its added in Tag list as a new Type tag. I want to enable/disable this new type tag for users.
I have added new type tag named as "MyType". I want to Enable/Disable this tag type for different users. (Users with no permission to show this tag type are not able to visible this tag type in tag list)
Hello, I am new to VTScada. I have an Alarm Word from the PLC, where each bit represents an individual fault. I'd like to read the entire Alarm Word as a single tag in VTscada and create alarms for each individual bit. I have found the expression Bit([HMI Alarm Word],2) for example to work as an expression, but I'm not sure where/how to enter this to create the Alarm. Thanks.
Hi, is there a way to update a custom report without having to restart the application?
I've been playing with some custom reports in VTScada. Currently, adding a new report won't require the application to restart, but adding or removing a report would require the application to start after clicking Import File Change. This becomes quite time consuming if I need to make/test small chang
I created a tag and then deleted it, but wanted to remake the tag again later after making some changes in a template tag. When I tried to recreate the tag I got the following error message, "A module or variable with the same name already exists. Please enter another name for this tag".
I am guessing that this error can be corrected so I can make another tag with the same name by deleting th
Hi, I'm fairly new to setting up a system with VTScada, I'm using VTS 12 Lite to monitor and control small monitoring stations. The monitoring stations have the ability to detect a communications failure and save data locally. Is it possible to have this data uploaded into VTS automatically for display in the HDV?
I have seen this done before however, the situation was that there were propri
Our company is going to purchase a full version of VTScada but while I am waiting to get everything approved I was wondering if I could develop a tag database in VTScada light and transfer it to a full version of VTScada
Is there a way to remove the Notpad's from the popup HDV. For Example if each site has a notepad in the Folder it shows all them in the HDV. i am Okay with having the System Notes in there but it is just getting out of control with every other one.
We are logging data at a jobsite and are concerned that the PC will run out of memory without us realizing it was running low. We would like to be able to check the c: drive for space available. I had found the DriveInfo, but am not sure where to integrate that function.
Has anyone ever used a Prosoft AN-X2 module with VTScada? I have one here working with RSlinx as well as Kepware, but trying to get the intrinsic Allen Bradley ControlLogix Ethernet driver to work with it and having no luck.
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
