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

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.

New to VTscada trying to figure out how somethings are done in this environment.

Is there a tag type that is VTscada scoped? That is not being written back to a PLC.

For example if I wanted to create a VTscada tag that an operator could interact with to reset a totalizer tag, what type of tag would I use?

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
Keith Donaldson is an Engineer and Head of Business Management at the Trihedral office in Aberdeen, UK. In this tutorial, he explains how JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) works and why its role in modern SCADA systems continues to grow. Keith will demonstrate step-by-step how to configure the VTScada JSON driver and connect to third-party data. This will include using the JSON Parser to encode a
I am working on my first application for my city's water treatment plant and distribution system. I just noticed in the developers guide it states that digital control tags do not retain their values during app restarts. Most of our pumps are started and stopped manually and I do not want anything SCADA related to shut them down. Should I use Analog control tags set to 0 and 1 for this situat

I need to create an XY plot of the data from 2 tags but am having difficulty doing so. I have looked at the PlotXY function but am unsure of where to use it and how to get the arrays of data needed for the function.

hello sir,

I`m pushpika from Saudi Arabia.I have designed a scada system for my company and it is approved to implement. i am using VTscada Light version to implement this project.this project includes water flowing system with chiller lines and etc.. i am planning to use Modbus compatible device to my project instead of PLC.i have already choosen a device.but i need to make sure it will be c

I would like to use VTScadaLight to send process data to an OPC UA server so that other OPC UA compliant programs can have access to that data.

Does VTSLight support this functionality or do I require a fully licensed version of VTS?

If VTSLight does support this functionality is there documentation that describes how to configure it appropriately.

i`m using vtscada light version and i have Omron NJ series plc.when i trying to setting up plc with vtscada application,it shows only two series there.C/CV series and CS/CJ NJ series not supporting with vtsada?if support, how to add drivers?which one i need to select while adding drivers ?omron fins driver or omron host link plc?please let me know.thank you.

I attached an excerpt from the help files, but I would like to discuss it for a second.


If there is a single application on site, and we need a backup solution that is automatic AND shutting down and restarting the application isn't possible, is using windows file history an acceptable method for continuous backup?

It was not difficult to communicate a Koyo PLC with VTScada by means of Modbus TCP, being both, PLC and VTScada in the same LAN.
However, I have not been able to communicate them when the PLC is connected to a router outside the LAN of VTScada.
I typed a public IP address and the PLC port number when configured the TCP/IP port in the VTScada.
The resulting value of TCP/IP Port is -10,06

I am having an issue connecting to a Koyo DL330 PLC via serial. I have it setup with the correct station addresses and COM port parameters, and it appears to be reading my register R16 correctly. However, writing to the tag fails. Sniffing the serial packets, it appears that the driver is trying to pull data from 2 8-bit registers when I only want to pull from one and I believe this is w

Some people have been having an issue connecting to the Microsoft Store and downloading the Excel plugin. A lot of these we have found are because of the Excel build. Note that Excel can be up to date with security patches but still be behind on builds.

The add-in currently requires what is known as the ExcelApi 1.4 requirement set which is available in build 7870.2024 or later, so although y

For a school I work on three small PLC controlled processes supervised by separate VTScada applications to manage
some food processing equipment (evaporator, powder dryer machine, autoclave) that the students have to learn to work with.

Is there a report tool for VTScada that enables me to document the details of the tags of these applications in an organized way for the project document
