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

Allen Bradley tag creation, if I create a tag for Bool in program, how do I set up address for tag? video is different than what I am seeing.

This is in Softlogix PLC simulator.

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

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!

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,

Hi,

My VTScada application uses a 3rd-Party database (MySQL). I'm trying to retrieve a tablename using this query:

SELECT tablename FROM friendlyTagNameLookup WHERE friendlyName = 'MyTag';
Unfortunately, this query returns null. Upon looking directly in the database, I can see that the table 'friendlytagnamelookup' is incomplete. Some tags are present and others are missing. I tried addin

With Analog Status you have High and Low alarm setpoints built in so you don't have additional setpoint tags go against your tag count. How do you then refrence these setpoints inside the digital status tag to a numeric entry so that users can changes these without having to go into tag browser?

Is this the design that for adjustable setpoints in HMI it requires tags (that go against the cou

Hi, is there a recommended way to trigger on-screen keyboard on Windows 10?
I have an application with a Program Spawn button and a path to c:\Windows\System32\osk.exe
The same button on Windows 7 would open the on-screen keyboard but not on Windows 10.
However, if I change it to notepad c:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe, it would work on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Thanks

Hi there,

I have recently ventured into trying VTSCADA and I really REALLY like it.

I use scada systems for very simple lab based data aquisition and control. Very seldom more than 15 tags.

My challenge is that I need to aquire a timestamp ONLY when a certain tag value changes. The tag is basically a totaliser (Analog input from MCU). This is very simple to do in the likes of SCADABR

Is there a way to configure a context tag for Rockwell add-on instructions or user defined data types? For example I would like to create a TankType structure with a property named identifier. For tank TK01 I assign the identifier to TK01 and I want all child tags to follow the TK01.TagName structure. I can't figure out the syntax for the tag I/O address expression.

In response, MPE configured the application to allow for use of VTScada as local HMIs at all remote stations. Once VTScada is deployed as a local HMI, if the station is cut

Hi,

I'm trying to use a C# based dll with my VTScada application. To do so, I'm using The function DLL.

It's working well with integers, floats and strings, but I have to do some gymnastics to get a bool (I use an integer return type and apply a modulo 2 to the variable to get a 0 or a 1), and I flat out can't get any types of object. I'm trying to use a pointer as a return type but I al
