In my application, several tags does not have their updated value displayed in the historical data viewer.
I can see that the tag has a "live" value that is different than the value displayed in the historical data viewer.
There are no deadbands defined for the tags, and the value should be logged in the historical data viewer directly. The minimum log interval for the tags are set to "0"

We use Google Drive to house information of various lift stations utilizing a program spawn widget. Here's the breakdown of that program spawn...

This is just a shortened down version of what's included in that box for program spawn properties. There are 64 lift stations, so the list below is definitely longer. I created a folder for LS71 because at the time we did not have a dedicated folder
Just wondering if anyone has had any luck using VTScada to connect to the BRX Controllers from Automation Direct. I love the PLCs but I am only successful with MODBUS comms which are limited to specific registers. I create my own User Data Types (UDT's) that are mappable to EIP Locations to which you can use Ethernet Explicit Messaging to. I am very unfamiliar with getting the communications to

Analog Input Tags, Analog Status Tags, Digital Input, Digital Status, etc are all considered legacy type tags according to the VTScada Help files. It is advised to use I/O and Calculations Tag instead. Why ? Is there anything wrong with using legacy tags ? What are the main differences from legacy tags to i/o & calculation tags ?

Hi, I have to communicate to Micrologix 1100 over TCPIP. I made confoguration according your sample project AB CIP Driver Demo and related YouTube video, but did not succeded.
Could you, please, provide me with example of configuration with one analogue tag addressed to N7:0 for example. I would like to use local Ethernet site using TCPIP. (Direct connection between PC and Ethernet port on Mi

If you notice, I have two parent tags called USGS & USGS 2. These tags point to a different USGS site location (Cribbs Mill Creek & Black Warrior River). From that parent tag, I've made two child tags with two analog status. I have an analog status for pulling the discharge, cubic feet per second and the gage height of both cribbs mill creek & black warrior river. How do I associate t

I thought this would be simple but I'm having trouble getting it to work. I want to create a two color bar where the bar is green in normal and the entire bar turns red after the setpoint (not just the area above the setpoint). For example, a tank level 0 to 100% and high setpoint is 80%. In normal, the bar is green. When the level hits 80%, I want the entire bar to turn red not just the area

Good morning,
I just installed this wonderful SCADA, and following the help, I can not make a connection using MODBUS TCP/IP... something I am not doing well.
The modbus tcp/ip communication I do perfectly from other software, and I read and write in all directions well.

The data I have on the other soft:
PORT: 502

I have entered string entries in my IO calculation tags.
I want to show the indicator as a green label when the written value from the VTScada to RTU gets written successfully.

As shown in the pic above, When this string value gets written successfully into the RTU from SCADA, I want to show the indicator as Green.

How can I do that? Please guide me.
Let me know if any other

I've been playing around with VTScadaLight for a few days now, wanting to learn more and more about VTScada. I can not seem to find where PMC1001 originates from ? I know it's a serial connection, a child of the Local TCP Port. I am hoping someone knows where to find PMC1001

Hello all,

I want to read the Module IP address and show that in screen under each Module Image. All I got is TCPIP port's status value but not IP address.

How can I read the IP address from the TCP port and show that in the screen for the concerned module.

Note: Do not want to add manually. It will be customizable and may be changed in future. So as per change should also reflect in
I am running the micro800 simulator on Allen Bradley's CCW software.

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
What is the correct syntax for an IO tag address to read data with the SQL Data Driver when the column name in the source data base has a '\' in it?

I'm attempting to read data from one VTScada application to another, and haven't been able to get the proper syntax for a successful query. The query when viewed in the trace viewer is always cut off after the first '\'.

I want use JSON/XML Driver in VTScada A to read a tag from VTScada B.

The VTScada B has configured the corresponding parts. So I can get tag1 data in browser with URL " timestamp,'MyTest\Machine1\CommDriver\Tag1:value' from history ORDER BY Timestamp DESC limit 5" from VTScada B.

The data is as below:

Hello, i am trying to dynamically set the PageHeight property in the source code of a popup.

its seems you cannot run an expression in the variable declaration of the source code.
I can put this in the main function PageHeight = PickValid(Type_PID\RemSP, 0) == 1 ? 709 : 577 ;
But it seems it doesn’t resize the popup.

Is there a way to change the height of a popup with an expre

I'm new to VTScada and currently using VTScada light and watching videos to get started. Two quick questions.

The text widget correctly reads a tag in the PLC but displays a ? at the end of the text. How do I get rid of the ? at the end of the text?

How can I change the color schemes for the gauge widgets? I'm using the Arc Meter gauge widget which is blue but don't see any
