  2. I am trying to write some citect variables back to the PLC. I have made a startup cicode script which is suppose to copy one variable to another which I found on the web. I am not sure if just using tag = tag is OK in citect 2018. Any help would be fantastic.   Cicode below: *********************** FUNCTION StartUpFunction()     INT hMyTask;     // Start a new task that runs all the time and transfers values using writetag     hMyTask = TaskNew("fnDoThis","",0); END FUNCTION fnDoThis;     //Never Stop this Loop     WHILE 1 DO         //Update the first Tag         TagWrite ("M340PLC_R02kW",Sub02Substation2PowerkWtot)         M340PLC_R03kW = Sub03Substation3PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R04kW = Sub04Substation4PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R05kW = TerminalSubstation_5InstantaneousPowerkWtot         M340PLC_R06kW = TerminalSubstation_6PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R07kW = Sub07Substation7PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R08kW = Sub08Substation8PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R09kW = Sub09Substation9PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R10kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV         M340PLC_R11kW = Sub11Substation11PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R12kW = Sub12Substation12PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R13kW = Sub13Substation13PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R14kW = Sub14Substation14PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R15kW = Sub15Substation15PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R16kW = Sub16Substation_16PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R17kW = TerminalSubstation_17PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R18kW = Sub18Substation18PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R19kW = Sub19Substation19PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R20kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV                 M340PLC_R21kW = Sub21Substation21PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R22kW = Sub22Substation_22PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R23kW = Sub23Substation_23PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R24kW = Sub24Substation_24PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R25kW = Sub25Substation25PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R26kW = Sub26Substation26PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R27kW = Sub27Substation27PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R28kW = Sub28Substation28PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R29kW = Sub29Substation29PowerkWtot         M340PLC_R30kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV         M340PLC_R31kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV         M340PLC_R32kW = PV2_SSB1PowerMeterPowerkWtot         M340PLC_R33kW = PV2_SSB2PowerMeterPowerkWtot         M340PLC_R34kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV         M340PLC_R35kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV         M340PLC_R36kW = M340PLC_G1_GEN_FREQ_PV         M340PLC_PQM3_WATTS_PV = HV_MetersBunnings_Intake_StnPowerkWtot         M340PLC_SOL01_SSB1_KW = SolarSSB1PowerMeterPowerkWtot         M340PLC_SOL01_SSB2_KW = SolarSSB2PowerMeterPowerkWtot         M340PLC_SOL01_SSB3_KW = SolarSSB3PowerMeterPowerkWtot         M340PLC_SOL01_SSB4_KW = SolarSSB4PowerMeterPowerkWtot         //Go to sleep for 1 second so as to not overload CPU         Sleep(1)     //Go back to start of Loop     END //End of Function END

  5. 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
  6. Hi, I have been helping a client overseas to upgrade and install some CPE330 PLCs configured as CRU320s to replace their faulty CRU320s. They had been previous controlling primarily from the Secondary (PLC B) for the last 6 years or so until PLC B finally failed due to a power surge. Having configured and downloading the previously working project to the PLCs in their respective hardware configuration, the system refuses to allow PLC A to control via the Citect SCADA, despite showing as Active and Ready on both Citect and the RMX Modules, although no outputs are read through Citect when PLC B is switched off at all. I found this forum from searching a previous post about drivers and if 90-30 and Rx3i required any changes (their previous setup before being Rx3i was 90-30), but as you confirmed in that thread, that the driver should be fine, unless you know of any issues with it working alongside newer PLCs configured as older ones? I should note we have discovered that the firmware revisions on each PLC is different and will be getting them to upgrade the later one to coincide. Each PLC has been tested in either HWC and both operate when configured as PLC B and neither operate fully as PLC A. We've had a GE technician check over the project and extracted text files from the PLCs and has confirmed the code and config looks correct. We're running out of ideas and out next step is to try and borrow 2 PLC racks and try to run them all first hand to see if PLC A runs on the SCADA in our office to try and rule out the software altogether! Any help you can provide would be much appreciated, Gene
  7. Hello. I am trying to make a serial RS 232C connection between Schneider Magelis HMIGXU3512 and Omron PLC CP1E. However, there seems to be a communication problems between both of the equipment. I am using cable XBT Z9740 for the serial communication cable. The format used is 8.2.N for both equipment. The baud rate is 115200. No Flow Rate is choose. Anyone can help with this kind of problems?
  8. S7-300 Citect S7NT

    Hello. I'm trying to comunicate to Siemens S7-300 using Citect S7NT driver. I haven't done this so far so I'm asking you for help. What software do I need to successfully comunicate with S7? How do I set S7NT CITECT driver (Board, port, device,...)? Thanks. Best regards.
  9. Hello. I'm trying to connect to Microsoft SQL Server (2008 EXPRESS), but the connection is not working. I have done this in Citect SCADA 2018 without any problems using connection string: hSQL = SQLConnect("SCADA Data Provider=SQLClient.....) How can I connect to MS SQL Server using Citect 6.1? Thanks. Best regards.
  10. Hi All, Have recently embarked on a project that has required me to change over to GX Works 3 in order to link an IQ-R120PCPU to a Citect 2018 SCADA package . In days gone by under IEC Developer and GX Works 2 it was quite easy to establish communications between the programming package running in simulation mode and a running Citect system using the MXCOMP driver via MX Components to perform offline testing. Can't seem to find a way to get it to work under GX Works 3 though, has anyone tried a similar setup Simulated logic in GX Works 3 is running fine and can modify the IO from inside MX Components "PLC Monitor Utility" program so there is no issues there, just cant get Citect to communicate. MX Component comm's has also been proven reading/writing variable to an excel sheet with GX Works 3 in simulation mode also. Attached are the files for getting GX Works 2 up and communicating to Citect 2018 via the same method i am trying to get working in GX Works 3 in case anyone ever needs to use that method. Any help would be appreciated.     GXWORKS 2 & CITECT 2018.zip
  11.

  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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"?
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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..
  18. 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?
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. Hello, We have this SCADA system Vijeo Citect 7.2 running in Windows 7. Primarily used as generator's alarm history & monitoring.

  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
