  1. Is there anyone who can provide me driver for Yokogawa Energy Meter WT230 which can be installed in Kingview 6.53 SCADA.
  2. Hi All, Has anyone had the experience of connecting two Fernhill Scada units using an OPC UA?  I am intending to use Fernhill Scada on my Master PLC to read tags from my Slave PLC's Fernhill Scada. Then, displaying local tags (Master PLC, "Fernhill SCADA Unit 1") and read/scanned tags from the Slave PLC, "Fernhill SCADA Unit 2". In the meantime, I am trying to use both of my Fernhill SCADA units interact with each other (one unit to read tags from the other unit) by using Internal Digital Tag on the Fernhill SCADAs.  Any help would be appreciated.

  5. Hi everyone, I am new here, currently I am working with AVEVA System Platform SCADA project where SCADA Data need to upload to a database frequently. so I setup a server remotely with database and tables (using Microsoft SQL server Management Studio). and using AVEVA System Platform SQL Data object i made a connection to the remote database and table and also add Attributes same as table Column. now I don't know how to use this SQL Data Object in My SCADA, how can i make it automatically insert My SCADA Data (selected data) to Database Table. Please Help me.
  6. Good Morning,   My name is Joseph Rhodes, I work as an electronic technician for the City of Tuscaloosa at the wastewater treatment plant. I work to keep the plant up and running as well as 64 lift stations spread out around Tuscaloosa, Alabama. A majority of our lift stations utilize Verizon Cell Modems, RV50s to be exact. It's rather easy connecting remotely to these lift stations as I can configure a driver as an ethernet / ip driver then associate an IP of that lift station (ex. 10.181.3.104 is lift station 104, 10.181.3.105 is lift station 105, etc). However, for the lift stations that do not utilize cell modems. We use GE MDS 9710 and 9810 radios. It is these lift stations that I have yet to figure out a way to connect remotely to the LS RTU PLC. All of our lift stations use Allen Bradley MicroLogix 1200s or 1400s. These lift stations that use the MDS radios communicate information to water tanks then that information is sent back through other channels. I was wondering is there a way to associate these lift stations on RSLinx that use GE MDS radios ?   
  7. I hear a lot of people talking about the annoyance of price estimates (meaning they don't get a clear, transparent price from the beginning) and the costly engineering that seems to never end. Do you think that a step-by-step, clear process and course of action from A to Z would be beneficial for companies? And I'm not talking here about SCADA software, like Ignition. I'm talking about using Ignition to build and implement a fully working SCADA solution, customized to your company BUT you know exactly the price and the methods/processes that will be used (it's a replicable framework to get similar results for multiple companies - and the results would be a SCADA solution without the headaches of the unknown prices and engineering characteristics). Basically, a clear project-based approach rather than an hourly approach where things can get confusing.    Do you think the industrial space could use something like that?
  8. Scada/ Site management

    Hi,  I have basic experience with PLCs but have a degree in electrical engineering. I have landed a job which requires me to advance my plc knowledge. I am based within the UK and need some advice on how to go about a solution to a problem. The site I am doing this for needs a site managment system. The site is within food production, this would be monitoring of mostly trips and faults within a wide range of industrial equipment (Pumps, compressors, fridges). The site is mostly Mitsubishi and would like one centralised portal within the workshop to view all of the equipment availability. Thank you.
  9. Citect Scada Modent Bit Read

    Hi team; I am struggling with a Citect SCADA read of some data. The system is using the "Modnet3" driver over TCP/IP to talk with a system (Modnet 3 as its TCP/IP with first register at 0 and 0 to 15 bits). I am reading the modbus data into variables which is working fine for the analogue values all defined as real in citect. The Issue I have is that the driver help says I can direct reference a bit in a word, in my case address 45052.1 Holding register 45052 and Bit 1. If I read this as a UINT I get a value of 147 corresponding to bits 1,2,5 and 8. Citect generates no errors for the tag setup where I define 45052.0 through 45052.15 but all remain as zero in tag lists.  Any help would be fantastic Kindest Regards Howard
  10. Dear Experts, I don’t have much knowledge and now working for a new project of cross-country Oil transportation pipeline SCADA. It’s a pipeline of more than 200 Km with 2 terminals (dispatch & receiving) and several valve stations through the pipeline will be connected with the central SCADA. The communication will be done by OFC placed along the pipeline. Apps of Leak detection system (LSD) have to supply and integrated with the SCADA system. Please suggest me which SCADA software should we use/suitable for the oil transportation pipeline? (ABB/Siemens/honeywell/else) Thanks.
  11. Hello, I need to enter double confirmation on some buttons but I can't figure out how to configure it. Has anyone ever configured double confirmation on button? (citect scada) Thank you
  12. Hello everyone! I would like to connect a Micrologix 1100 with Citect 7.5 via ABMLXEIP (updated to latest version). I tried everything and it is still not working. The Citect and the PLC are on the same subnet and the ping works fine. All the configuration is done as the manual says (I attach the pictures). I have one NIC card and is connected to the PLC. The role is setted to “Server and Control Client”. The kernel has this error: [ERROR] [CORE] [0x07fc] [IOServer] [(GLOBAL)] [ErrorLog()][errlog.cpp] [266 ] Error: Channel offline, cannot talk CINIT 0015 PORT1_BOARD1 IODev_1100 Error_in_CMD-2 16 Generic 000021 Driver 00000020 (0x00000014) Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, Gustavo.
  13. Dear all, I have a FX2N-20MR chinese semi-clon of a Mitsubishi PLC. It has only a serial DB9 port that cannot be removed or exchanged (which is possible in the Mitsubishi original PLC). I wonder if I can make a simple SCADA system using that port and just one computer. I am reading this post: https://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/9653-fx-series-and-modbus/ And I am wondering how I can do what it is suggested there in the second message:  to use a free FB block, available in GX IEC (but not in GX Developer), which will communicate modbus via a standard RS232 BD board. Later on it mentions a library called ModbSFX. That message is from 15 years ago so I am wondering if now there is some other way to do it, perhaps some other software has that functionality? I don't have GX IEC. I am a student trying to make a project so I would like a cheap and simple solution. Any help to do so will be very welcome. Thanks Regards Marcelo
  14. I am now part of a startup company based on energy optimisation of HVAC in buildings. I am assigned to have research on which SCADA system to select for HVAC energy optimisation. The model is in such a way that, we need to create a SCADA / HMI for the client's building on top of existing Building Management System (BMS) to achieve energy saving.  I am still an intern and I am requested to research on various SCADA options available in the market. I have few doubts regarding: 1. How can I select one SCADA / HMI over the other?  2.GE Cimplicity and Niagara 4 are two option which I am interested in. What is the major difference between both? (Price and functionality) 3. Is Tridium Niagara 4 a SCADA software? ( I read about it but I didn't understand as I am new to this field). Is it same like tia portal which is a software that is used to program plc and create user interface??

  17. Here is my setup - Factorytalk view SE V 7.0 with Primary and secondary servers. System gets replicated from primary to secondary once in a week. After the primary server was restarted due to some issue, all the HMI tags lost their values. 'Retentive' checkbox was checked on all HMI tags, initial value field is blank. According to the description of 'Retentive' field in the help file, the HMI tag should hold its value even after the server is restarted if the box is checked. Also, secondary server should have held those same values while primary was rebooting, but as of now all my HMI tags field are blanks. Am I looking at a patch roll up here?

  20. Datamap Tests

    Hi All, Bit of a noob here. I started a new project where the client is upgrading their SCADA system, and as such every discrete needs to be toggled, and every analog range needs to be tested. I've created an excel database with every register, however, changing the value in the tag is too manual for me and I'm trying to find a way to increase the automation. I am looking for a solution where I can write directly with the tags instead of fumbling through the horror which is Proficy. I've seen some mentions of using the trial version of Ignition but I am struggling to get that to a useable state.    Any ideas greatly appreciated.
  21. Mitsubishi PLC with Fernhill SCADA

  22. Hello, I am trying to have single press and double press etc. functionality in my PLC program where for example, single press will turn on the motor whereas double press will turn on the motor for 5 seconds. Is it possible to achieve using ladder logic in sysmac studio, if yes, how? Thank you in advance.
  23. I am pretty new to the SCADA world. I wanted to know what are the advantages of using a paid proprietary SCADA software such as WinCC, Wonderware, cimplicity over free software such as OpenSCADA, OpenAPI, IndigoSCADA and so on. I have read, there are more layers of security in the paid one. What does that mean? What are the other main differences between the paid and free ones out there in the market?
  24. Hi All, Hope you all doing well in this pandemic life.  I would need your expertise with an issue I have been struggling with for past few days and thought to reach out here. I am working on a migration project with GE PLC and Citect SCADA 7.10. The GE PLC is migrated to ControlLogix L74 Rev24.10 while Citect SCADA is retained. For testing I only have L71 and L82 and could not managed to organise L74. When the code the loaded in L71 and connected to Citect, I cannot see tags in Graphic page but I see the subscription.txt in Debug folder shows all tags good . The same code when loaded in L82, the Citect works instantly.  Does anyone know this behaviour of PLC and SCADA? Regards, DeeEngr    
  25. Hello Guys, I am very new to CIP messaging and in our project, we are trying to Controllogix to SCADA server using CIP messaging: What I understand from the process right now is : 1. SCADA Opens a connection for Large forward Open ( Connection size set at 2500 bytes) 2. PLC responds and establishes a connection 3. SCADA send an MSP request to access tags from PLC 4. PLC responds to this request The problem we are facing is the PLC doesn't send out a response of more than 240 bytes, Have any of you guys have faced a similar issue or can help me with troubleshooting?   Thanks in advance Attached screen captures from wire
