  3. Optimized Blocks

    Hello everyone, Are there any alternatives to WinCC at the moment that can handle using optimized blocks. In most other SCADA software, while importing tags, the option to optimize blocks should not be selected as they cannot import in this format. Ignition by Inductive Automation has a driver that can be purchased to solve this problem. I wanted to know if there are some other solutions to this issue.  Thanks!
  4. I have developed Vijeo Citect 7.5 in last 15 Days before at a Plant. During last 15 days scada went good and healthy, But suddenly its pop up window getting stuck after every 10-12hrs. So it is not possible to start/stop motor, drive. when press window button from keyboard then it becomes healthy again.  I am unable to reach at any solution for this problem. Please help me. 
  5. There have been many good discussions on the applicability of cloud-based solutions for manufacturing and process control systems. On one side, some people have concerns regarding security and control of the information, on the other side, there are identified benefits enabled by cloud systems. From VMS minicomputers to DOS and Windows, from ArcNet to Ethernet, it is inevitable the industrial automation systems shall adopt the technologies that are getting predominant in IT general use; the current environment that I am calling the “Cloud-iPad era” is no different; therefore the practical discussion is not if those new technologies will be applied in the industrial environment, but how. This paper is not intended to join the conceptual discussion about the cloud, but just to present a few simple practical examples, where cloud technologies are already enhancing industrial automation solutions and enabling new business opportunities.

  7. Analysing SCADA systems

    Hey guys, I'm currently working on a project to analyze available SCADA systems and make a systematic comparison of some of these selected options. In today's markets, there's a constant rise in demand for Industry 4.0 applications in the production process, connectivity, and data acquisition. What are some other important technical factors that need to be considered in order to compare these systems?
  8. Hello! I am beginner in PLC world, also in SIEMENS PLCs. I managed communication over private network. Now I have a problem that I get same values on all inputs. Picture below shows my configuration of driver and data monitor. First picture shows values when input I0.0 is in state 0. Second picture shows values when input I0.0 is in state 1. Physically on PLC only input I0.0 is forced to 1, input I0.1 stays 0. But data monitor shows both inputs as state 1. Where is problem? Is problem in PLC program, TIA portal? I saw some guys using DataBlocks but I am not skilled enough to use it. Third picture shows simple PLC program on my PLC. Please help. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hello! I am trying to connect my PLC with SCADA. I am using S7-1200 1212C CPU (RELAY outputs). My SCADA system is iFIX 5.8 with driver S7A. I am trying to establish connection via GPRS router (TCP/IP). Port being used is 102 (default by S7A driver). In my company we have private network, SIM card in GPRS router gets static IP (set by RADIUS server)  which is 10.247.XXX.XXX. My PLC has IP 192.168.0.10 set in Project. I am not sure what am I doing wrong. How to correctly set IP address in PLC to communicate in private network via GPRS router with static IP? I already enabled TCP port 102 in my router but I am not sure to which IP should I enable it because I am not sure if IP address set in PLC is correct. Should I use some communication blocks in program? I also enabled PUT/GET function (see attached pictures). Please help. Thanks in advance! :)

  14. Honeywell Experion SCADA

    I haven't used Experion before, nor do I have a licence or access to a download of the application. As such I want to know how limited an unlicensed version of the product is. Is it like Citect where you may develop graphics but need a license for runtime, or is it like FTView where you need a license just to open the application? Thanks in advance

  16. Citect...text string to sql

    Hi all, Needing an assist. We been trying to send a local var alphanumeric string to an Access DB using the SQL. We can successfully send integer/real values to the DB when they are entered via the var=FormNumPad() popup. I use SQLSet, SQLAppend, and SQLExec. Since we cannot generate text using FormNumPad(), we use the var=Input() command. The local var seems to hold the value entered on the screen, but a plc address writes the value for a moment then wipes it out. Then when we use the same SQL commands for the string var, the system immediately starts throwing errors. My guess is because the value is null. Any ideas? Is there a proper way to generate a keypad or textbox on screen? We are using v. 2016 on a Win10 box. Thanks in advance.

  18. Light SCADA request

    Hi all,  How are you? Hope everything goes well with all of you.  I have a small project that involves only 2 PLCs and around 500 objects or tags. End user does not require HMI graphics of factory operation. Basically the system only need to collect data from the instruments, and generate reports automatically. So, I was wondering is there such really "light" SCADA system to serve this kind of production? Because if possible I wish to implement using only basic workstation machine, since its work load is supposed to be very light.  I am glad to have your comment. Thank you so much.
  19.   Hi everybody, this is me psoting for the first time here.  Currently I am taking a distributed control systems course, and one of our current tasks is the following: "Develop a control system with the task to control an induction (asnychronous) motor. You may use HMI SCU 8B5 (Schneider electric PLC) and Altivar71( Schneider VFD). The communication protocol to be used is CanOpen. The process should be visualized on the HMI of the PLC. Using the IGSS scada system, you should be able to control and observe the system on a PC." I have written the SoMachine program that I will upload to the PLC(basically Schneider provided the code for the exact same hardware:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VW9deqK5TeEEQeA6fZZjteijUs7xVPcH/view?usp=sharing). Then I moved on to set up the IGSS scada program, following the pdf manual listed on their site, page 18 and on:http://d2i1dro1ulg1xm.cloudfront.net/training/FullWS_Exercise_Master.pdf . I tried to follow through all the steps, however I do have a few questions. First, in step 8., which driver should I use for my hardware? I selected the Modicon driver, as that was one of the few Schneider drivers available(see attached image). My second question is with regards to connecting the variables that the PLC sends to the PC and actual objects in the graphical environment, such as on page 32. How do I do it? If anyone has more materials on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. I can't get any help from my tutor(he refuses, and says we do our own research). If you know somebody who could perhaps help me out on this one, please feel free to share with them this question.     
  20. Elipse SCADA

    Hi, I'm adding some automatic slide adjusts to some progressive presses that use Elipse SCADA as their HMI software. I've never used it before and was wondering if anyone knew where I could learn the basics. All Google searches have yielded non-English tutorials and manuals and one unhelpful English manual. All I really need to know is how to establish communication and upload/download but any information provided would be greatly appreciate. The more thorough, the better.    Thanks! 
  21. Popular HMI/SCADA Software Suites?

          Hi all. I'm new here. Quick background on myself: I was a 6-and-out Navy Nuke Electrician on a Sub. I finished my service in Jan 2015 and immediately went to work as a shift electrician at a steel mill. I always say I was a good nuclear operator, but a poor electrician. However, I think I have learned rather quickly and really enjoy PLC's and HMI development. At my company, we have a lot of liberty to modify code, create new projects, etc.      I primarily work with S7-300/S7-400 and GE UC's at work; and I have a Micrologix emulator and programming software I practice on. All of our HMI development is done in InTouch and I feel proficient with WW, having done some projects with Modbus/DASSIDirect on my own.     As this is the first industrial automation job I have ever had, I only know about the software and hardware I have been exposed to at work. My question is what are other popular HMI software suites that major employers use (and customers prefer), because I'd really like to become very good at the programming/control side of my job.     Thank you all very much. Adam
  22. The OPC Server for Siemens Controllers

    Good day to all forum members. I think many engineers are faced with the need to connect Siemens controllers to various SCADA systems. In most cases, the OPC technology is used to make such a connection. We want to offer participants to try our product, the OPC server for the Profinet protocol applied in Siemens controllers. Our OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 2.05, OPC HDA 1.2 and OPC UA (transfer of archives is supported too). Controllers of the following series are supported: S7-200, S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200 and S7-1500. The OPC server provides the interactive import of tags from the Tia Portal environment, and this simplifies configuring the server. The OPC server contains the built-in client for monitoring values, and this simplifies communication debug. There are the following modifications of the OPC server: - Demo version (full-featured, 1 hour continuous operation in the runtime mode) - Free version (32 tags at the most) You can download the trial version here: http://opc-server.com/catalog/mullti-protocol/profinet/ In addition to the OPC server for the Profinet protocol, we also support such protocols as Modbus, Omron FINS, Bacnet, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC61850 and SNMP.   We would love to hear feedback and feature requests to our products.

  24. The OPC Server for Omron Controllers

    Good day to all forum members. As you know, Omron controllers support FINS, the protocol of its own development. Despite the protocol is high-functional and well thought-out, few of SCADA systems support the protocol at the driver level, and therefore the main manner of connection of such controllers to SCADA systems is an OPC server. We want to offer participants to try our OPC server for the FINS protocol. Our OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 2.05, OPC HDA 1.2 and OPC UA (transfer of archives is supported too). The protocols FINS Ethernet and FINS Serial are supported, and this allows you to connect various modifications of Omron controllers, both with and without Ethernet cards. The OPC server contains the convenient utility of import from a file formed by CX-Programmer, and this simplifies configuring the server. There are the following modifications of the OPC server: - Demo version (full-featured, 1 hour continuous operation in the runtime mode) - Free version (32 tags at the most) You can download the trial version here: http://opc-server.com/catalog/mullti-protocol/opc_server_for_omron_controllers/ In addition to the OPC server for the FINS protocol, we also support such protocols as Modbus, Profinet, Bacnet, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC61850 and SNMP.   We would love to hear feedback and feature requests to our products.
  25. GX Works2 & MX OPC Server 6.10 issue

    Hello! What i am about to do is connecting an external SCADA system to a Mitsubishi PLC via OPC server. I have already made some FBs and included their instances in a program in GX Works2, then started a GX Simulator2 and connected it to an OPC Server. From the OPC configurator I have defined some tags with their corresponding device addresses (e.g. D12345). I am using structured variables which device addresses i am entering in the OPC configurator. Tried to make some full rebuild compiling and at first was happy that the devices remain unchanged. The main problem is that after some time this devices change which completely ruined my experiment. Maybe there is some point that I am missing or there is just no way to use a fully functional SCADA connected that way to the Mitsubishi PLC (by OPC)? The question is is there a way to tell a particularly used instance of a function block to have exactly the same device addresses ever.
