  2. 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.
  3. Dear all schneider Experts, anyone having "Vijeo designer screen editor"Software for XBT012110 megelis HMI. Please give a download link, I got very  stuck  to get this software #Advanced Thanking you......
  4. Hi my dear colleagues, I tried to configure data location for the text file used with text display. It works if loaded to main drive. But, if I point to secondary or optional drive the system doesn't even allow me to download the program to HMI. Error 1850..secondary drive not found. I noticed in the property inspector, that the windows for Secondary and Optional drive are grey. The Vijeo Designer V6.2 and HMIG3U with three USB ports (one mini and 2 usual) and one SD port are used.  May be, they are all disabled somewhere, with a hardware switch? But, even if the windows were active, I have no idea, what to put into them, to configure SD or USB as secondary or optional drive. Please, help. regards, Waldemar
  5. Hi, I am new to Vijeo. The task is to show different messages on HMI screen (I use Vijeo designer V6.2.5 and Magelis HMIG3U).  A new string variable "ToDoTxt" was created as an Array with dimension 2048. A StringDisplay was put on the screen and ToDoTxt[0] was chosen. How can I show other 2047 values, which depend on value of another integer variable "StepNumber"?
  6. I have a program that I as building in SoMachine V4.3 and Vijeo Designer 6.2. Everything is coming together well at this point but I can't seem to figure out if I can put a poteniometer type object on the HMI using Vijeo Designer. This will be used to control the speeds of some VFD that are connected to the PLC. I have found ways to use a meter or simple numeric input it change the WORD that controls the drive speed. I would really like to use a knob or slider bar as I believe it would be a nice function. I've tried it on two different Magelis screens that I will be using for two different projects. One is a HMISCU8A5(controller and HMI in one unit) and the other is a HMIGTO3510.   Thank You
  7. Hello All,Does anybody know the correct syntax for the following:-I have a genie with variable A getting passed inI want to use this as a prefix for a variable address to send to a function.function ( %A% + _variable)(_variable being the rest of the address)So if genie variable A was 05 the tag value sent to the function would be 05_variable.Also, I would like to off set the A variable by 4Sofunction ( %A% - 4 + _variable)so would actually send value from 01_variable if the genie A was 5.Hope that makes sense, any help would be greatly appreciated as I've being trying various different ways and cant get it to work.Thanks,Tom
  8. Who Have Someone connected Citect with Omron CJ2M CPU32 ? Can i use it? Device communications wizard -> CJ Seres PLCs -> Ethernet    or need to Finsgateway software.    [Setting] 1. Boards TCPIP / 0(Address)  2. Port -I192.168.100.10 -P9600 -U (*PLC: 192.168.100.1 , PC: 192.168.100.51) 3. I/O Device 0/1/1/      /   OMFINS3    [MANUAL]  ----> Fallow the manual ONLY CS1, CV Need to setting  w/n/u/V  or w/n/u/S CJ2M do not need to this setting ?       I/O Devices Form Complete the I/O Devices form as instructed, with the following specific information. I/O Device Address The station address for an Omron CV Series PC is specified as follows : w/n/u/V for CV mode or w/n/u/S for CS1 mode where w is the FINS network address (1-127) n is the FINS node number (1-126) u is the FINS unit address (0) There are no defaults for w, n, or u, but if you do not specify a mode (with a V or S), it will default to CV mode. The FINS node number should be the same as the IP address node number. The FINS network number should be the same for all ETNs on the Ethernet segment. There is no relationship between FINS network numbers and IP network numbers.   Thank you..
  9. Vijeo Citect - write to tag - error

    Hi everyone.  In Vijeo Citect SCADA I created some tags and I try to write to a bit device of MELSEQ Q PLC. But I get this error : Cicode General software error. Note: I can read from PLC.
  10. hi guys.  I am getting a server problem while communicating pc & scada . is there any solution to rectify it? or problem is in license? thanks in advance
  11. i'm working with vijeo designer and i have a problem with popup windows. I'm trying to make a popup window appear with a variable. A bool to be exact. I want that a popup window appears when the bool becomes 1. But so far i haven't found a way to do that. Can someone help how I could do that? It's the meaning that that bool becomes 1 when there is an error and that the popup window appears then to let the user know there is an error. Or does annyone have a better idea?
  12. Hi every body. I want to get and set Time Picker value in process analyst in citect scada using cicode. Also  I tried to find an event or function when time picker value is changed , is called but find nothing. May you help me please?
  13. Hello. Recently I created two projects which I later connected with INCLUDE property. Let's say we have Project_1 and Project_2. In Project_1 I include Project_2. Everything works except Trend Groups. The only trend group which is working is the one in Project_1. I know I can copy Trend Group definition to Project_1 but then these two projects are not independent anymore. Did someone come to some kind of solution? Thanks
  14. Our site currently runs Citect 7.4 SP2. We have a redundant server set up, with about 5 - 6 Clients and growing to 8 clients this year.  I'm new to the industry, been in it for about 3 years but I'm getting the feeling Citect may not be as good of a solution for us as something like Intouch looks to be. We are a Batch Process, Food Manufacturing Site. Citect came about years ago by a local sparky installing it as being used as a stand alone, small, simple, <500 point, HMI and Alarm viewer for a piece of original plant which has now grown to multiple plants (Same site different process areas) and 5000 points, which will need upgrading soon. I haven't used InTouch myself, but most other integrator's I come across are always like "Oh, why do you use Citect?", also almost all local integrator's use InTouch, which looks like it has much better add-on packages, support and graphics. We're not there yet, but we're continually moving to try and become a full S88 plant and I'm just starting to think do we jump ship now? I see Schneider have acquired Invensys, as we have System Platform to use the Historian with our Citect System. Just interested to see what people here, particularly if you're familiar with both, thought about the two? Citect is ok, but InTouch looks like a much better solution.
  15. Hello, We have this SCADA system Vijeo Citect 7.2 running in Windows 7. Primarily used as generator's alarm history & monitoring. PLC: OMRON C200HG All communications are good but DIGITAL data (alarms, bustie) from OMRON is not updating in real-time. (Need to restart the Vijeo Citect to make it work).  While BCD & LONGBCD datatypes (voltage, speed current) are working good and showing real-time *OFSVIJEO: INT datatypes are also working good.

  16. We are communicating FX3GE PLC with Vijeo Citect SCADA. We tried various protocols such as MelsecNET, MelsecFX2N, Melsec1, etc. If you know how please help.
  17. Hi, everyone! I need to connect Modicon M238 (TM238LFDC24DT) with Magelis HMIGXO3501. I was not able to find any programming guide for this family of HMI's, so I kindly ask for a link, or maybe a PDF copy, For now, my problem is that I have SoMachine v4.1 with Vijeo Designer 6.2 installed, and the GXO family is not displayed in the configuration catalog.
  18. Citect: Displaying IO device comm. Error

    Hi guys, In my current project, I have a number of energy meters (128) communicating on Modnet (TCPIP) with Citect as different IO devices. I have a screen, where I wish to display the communication status of each IO device. If there is an error communicating with a particular I need to associate a tag for displaying the same. Can someone guide me how to accomplish this.   Thanks for looking in.
  19. Hi everyone, I would like change user password on HMI GTO via Vijeo script. I don't know which variables store the password. Anybody as an idea? Thank you in advance
  20. Hello, I am responsible for implementation of Vijeo Citect 7.4 SCADA in my company. I want to connect to Beckhoff PLCs by using Twincat OPC Server. I can control and observe the variables through OPC Control tool, but when I add the device and variables to my Citect aplication, they are always equal zero. I cannot also force through Citect to change the value. I don't know where the problem lies. If you need additional information, please ask me. I will provide you with all the data I have. Thank you in advance. beckhoff_opc.bmp
  21. in Citect i use the following function to associate various Tags with the next popup window, in the previous versions the tags passed to the trend fine since upgrading to 7.4 the trend pens dont display but all the values display fine.  FUNCTION // function AssPIDPopup // Expand a full set of PID tags and open // the PID block supergenie AssPIDPopUp(STRING sSGenie,STRING sBasePIDTag)     AssVarTags(-2,0,sBasePIDTag + "_PV");      AssVarTags(-2,1,sBasePIDTag + "_SP");      AssVarTags(-2,2,sBasePIDTag + "_OP");      AssVarTags(-2,3,sBasePIDTag + "_MAN");      // Now the tags for the PID tuning SG     AssVarTags(-2,4,sBasePIDTag + "_KP");      AssVarTags(-2,5,sBasePIDTag + "_KI");      AssVarTags(-2,6,sBasePIDTag + "_KD");      AssPopUp(sSGenie);      END I added a button to run the following code FUNCTION Loadtrend()     TrnSetPen(19, 1,  AssInfoEx(1,0));     TrnSetPen(19, 2,  AssInfoEx(2,0));     TrnSetPen(19, 3,  AssInfoEx(3,0));     Prompt("Test");      END     when clicked the pens set to the trend fine, i tried to run the code from a function but it did not work. i am new to citect and am sure i am missing something stupid.
  22. Hello there. I have connected wireless module (master) to Vijeo Citect 7.4 using RS-485 to USB converter. My slave modules are supplied power from gird/generator and the master module is supplies from a UPS.    I'm reading Modbus registers of slaves modules data via wireless master. Every time we have a power failure from grid, I get #BAD from all slave addresses. The generator kicks off within 30 sec. That is the slaves are off for 30 sec. Even after the slaves are powered on, SCADA does not poll data from it until I restart the SCADA.    My current MODBUS parameters are:   Inittype = 3, TimeOut = 3000, WatchTime = 10, Retry = 2. Could you please assist me on which parameters to change in .ini so that SCADA reads Modbus registers of slave for more than 30 sec.   I tried increasing TimeOut to 30000 but it couldn't solve the problem. I would appreciate if some one could help me out.   Thanak you in advance.      
  23. Hello all, I'm working on existing project with Citect scada V6.0. My actual HMI communicate with my TSX P57 threw OFS. It works fine. I've a new project about linking Citect with 1 Wago PLC, using modnet. I've created a new project for that, out of my actual project. It's working fine too. I can read all the modbus TCP datas of my wago Unit.  My problem is now integrating my wago project into the actual. I include it into, but it does not work. To resume, If i use the only actual project, I can watch my data on the screen threw OFS; I i use the modnet project alone (after configuring the citect computer setup), i can wath my wago data on the screen. If I use the both project together, (including modnet project in the actual), modnet data are not linked. Any ideas to help me? thks all
  24. Hello Everybody, We need to get Toshiba PLC to communicate with citect directly via ethernet. I have attached a photo of the PLC we're using..V series. Really appreciate any input on this matter (regarding the right drivers for this series)...Thanks alot!
