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 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.

Need a report to list alarms active in time frame that I can use with a report tag to email to bean counters.

Due to impending weather at multiple locations.

I've been trying to alter the QuarterHour,src example but the help file doesn't say where to save it so I get a file not found error importing it.

I have a small OEM style PLC with Modbus TCP support. VTSCADA easily reads data from the the controller. When "Enable Output" is checked however, there is no change in the PLC data table when "manual data" is entered.

A third party Modbus Simulator has no problem writing the data to the PLC.

VTS presents NO ERRORS on the Modbus Status.

Question,

I'd like to set up a Modbus Compatible Device driver to act as a virtual PLC. I then want a separate machine to poll this virtual PLC via Modbus TCP to read the values in the Virtual PLC registers.

Is this possible - and if so, how do I set this up? I have tried creating a virtual PLC and put an analog tag with a value in there, but I cannot get a Modbus Client device to successfully connect

For Testing Purposes, I would like to Enable or Disable an Automatic SilenceSound() Function so that I hear 5 seconds of the Alarm Alert sounds and then they are Silenced without Operator intervention. I don't want to Acknowledge or take any other Actions.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Thanks, Paul H. Bott, P.E.

Hello guys,

I try to connect VTScada with my AB Micrologix 1000 PLC. It still uses serial port RS232 (I connect with USB converter-COM3).

I have tried Allen Bardley DF1 Driver. But it doesn't work. My PLC type is not available at PLC type list. But I hope they still can be connected.

Could you guys help me please.
Thanks,
