  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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! :)

  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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

  13. 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.
  17. 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......
  18. 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
  19. 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"?
  20. SCADA for FX3U

    Hello everyone.  I got factory full of FX3U plcs and right now is needed to make a SCADA for monitoring (and maybe provide some control) all of them. I dont know which SCADA product to choose. Which one have bettter compatibility with mitsubishi plcs/which one is cheaper/or maybe simpler in use.  Thank you in advance.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.

  24. 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

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..
