  1. 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!
  2. hi i am using vijeo citect 7.4 i generate a report automatically using a triger but the report generated in the .rtf form which any body can change the values in the report so i want to either make the report in the read only form or convert it automatically to pdf + i ' ve another problem i am tring to write a string in the report using the form {tag_name:############} where the tag_name is a variable string memory where i store in it a word "starter" when the report is generated only two letters "st" is generated can any body give me a solution for these two problems , thanks in advance .
  3. I'm having a problem creating variable tag array in Citect SCADA V7.40. I looked every possible help, user guide... but no matter how i set array I cannot change value of any element of array beside first one. I configured my variable tag as shown below: Tag name: TestArray I/O Device: Internal (it's an OPC Factory Server) Address: V500[5], %MF4000[5], I2[5], F2[5] (I tried every one of these for REAL or INTEGER type based on user guide/forum posts) Data type: REAL, INTEGER   I tried every one of these but without success. If i try to set value of variable tag array element, example TestArray[1] and TestArray[4], by typing value in Number field (in Citect Runtime) every element of an array is giving me message #ERR, except first one. Other than that in Citect Runtime in All variable tags window, I can see TestArray tag as a single tag, not as an array Note that i'm not using these tags in Cicode but in Graphic Builder / Runtime. I need about about 50 user defined value tags to be sent to SQL DB by SCADA so remote PLC can read those values in order to define state of outputs. I would highly appreciate any kind of help, any tip. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi All: I am new to Citect and looking for a way to create 1 page that has 25 valves (genie that pops up a super genie) and some analog genie/super genies. What I want to do is create 1 page and dynamically replace everything when someone selects a different rack in the system. I have 4 systems that have the exact same equipment times 10 so I want to avoid creating 40 different pages. Can anyone help with some ideas on how I can accomplish this? Thanks M
  5. In my present project, I have to interface an energy meter that has its kWh count in 64 bit Double format. Now that Vijeo citect hasn't a facility to create tags of the "double' type I am looking for a work-around to this problem. Thanks for any help/advise in this matter
  6. I am struggling with the following problem: We have a Momentum PLC running with a project downloaded from Concept 2.6. When I make a small change into the project and I download the change to PLC there seems to be no problem. But when I try to run a visualisation project in Vijeo Look then after any click in visualisation the yellow triangles with red crosses appear over every object on the screen. We run OFS to enable communication between PLC and Vijeo Look. We use non-allocated variables in the project and probably the Visualisation does not work well with those unallocated variables after project changes. Can someone please describe steps which need to be taken to compile or upload a Concept project so that it works well in Vijeo Look with unallocated variables?
  7. Hi, I'm wanting to know from anyone using Citect 7.X and above, about how your systems are set up when using a primary/secondary redundant server setup. With the advice from some consultants I've changed from a couple of stand alone units to a redundant server setup and multiple clients plant wide. There's about 8 PLCs currently with more coming. However it was recommended to split the IO server of Citect over the two physical servers, so that 1 physical server is the Primary IO server for 4 PLCs and secondary server for the other 4, then the other physical server has the same setup just opposite Primary/Secondary setup for the devices of the first physical server. I get that it splits the work load, but our engineering team is updating the servers multiple times a day most days and we will be for at least the next year, I'm finding that this system isn't very friendly constantly shutting down and restarting etc interrupting trending also, and want to switch from this split IO Server setup, to just one server that's primary, one server that's secondary. My Question, is it fine for one physical server to be primary and for how many PLC's? Server is a 6 Core Intel 2011 socket CPU (Not sure on exact specs at this stage). System INFO TAG count is about 5000, and Manufacturing is a slow process so no need for split second updates on anything. about 500 Trends polling every 1 second. Cheers.
  8. Hi friends, I have this need to declare a few arrays of string variables and intialize them with a particular value, in Citect. In citect, on the forms for variable declaration, there is a place given for entering the array-size. In the case of other data-types such as INT or REAL, entering a number here will imply that the declared variable is an array with the size mentioned in the Array-size. In the case of string variables, the array size represents the size of the string ie. one element for 2 characters. If we declare the size of the array as an extension of the variable name, such as StrVariable_array[30] then Citect throws up a compile error. We are of course able to declare an array of string variables in the cicode editor, but then this is not 'Global' for use as variable tags. So the question begs.. How do you declare an array of string variables, preferably using local variables. Thanks for looking in, regards and best wishes.
  9. Hi Guys, I wish to know if there is a method by which one can use string substitutions in Cicode functions.. It is a very useful thing, when used with structured tag names. In my current project, there are 200 Energy meters, each having 8 tags, hence 1600 tags. Each group of 8 tags has the same pattern ie <prefix> being the identity of a given meter. <prefix>_Vavg, <prefix>_Iavg, <prefix>_MaxkW, <prefix>_kWh, <prefix>_kVAr, <prefix>_kW, <prefix>_RunHrs I wish to log this data onto a SQL database table named "METER_LOG", carrying out the logging actions for each meter in a record, that has these fields(Columns) |Meter_Id |----|Vavg|---|Iavg|----|MaxkW|----|kWh|----|kVAr|----|kW|----|RunHrs| My goal now to do this in a loop, so that all the logging actions are done with a few lines of code. There is a table-"METER_IDs" that gives the list of all Meter_IDs or <prefix> And the code I wish to implement is a cicode function that would look like this.- It is not correct, I've used genie substitution syntax and that won't work here. FUNCTION LogAllMeters() int hSQL; string %Cur_ID%;// --This is the string that will be substituted in the loop hSQL = SQLConnect("DSN=<DSN_name>; UID =xxxx; PWD=yyyy"); IF hSQL <> -1 THEN Status = SQLExec(hSQL, "SELECT Meter_ID FROM METER_IDs ORDER BY Meter_ID"); IF Status = 0 THEN WHILE SQLNext(hSQL) = 0 DO // --Scan till the end of the list for all meters %Cur_ID% = SQLGetField(hSQL, "Meter_Id"); INSERT Into METER_LOG VALUES ( %Cur_ID%, %Cur_ID%_Vavg, %Cur_ID%_Iavg, %Cur_ID%_MaxkW, %Cur_ID%_kWh, %Cur_ID%-kVAr, %Cur_ID%_kW, %Cur_ID%_RunHrs); END SQLEnd(hSQL); SQLDisconnect(hSQL); END ELSE SQLDisconnect(hSQL); Message("Error", SQLErrMsg(), 48);END//----outer IF End// of FunctionI would greatly appreciate it if someone could guide me with a way to substitute strings so that the structured tags are correctly referenced inside the loop. Thanks a million for looking in.
  10. Hi All, I'm adding a system to my current project which is used to keep product labels correctly moving around the plant (On Screen) and then end up in their correct destination silos and stay there until manually cleared. The labels are determined by referring to an INT in the PLC DM register for that particular part of the plant and then references that to a preset String Variable Tag to display. Now I've made a Genie that is to be attached to each Silo which opens up a small super genie which will just have - a Title, - the label of the current product in the silo(Var Tag), - a label of the previous product to be in that silo (Var Tag), - and a button with a function that I've written to clear that particular label and then store the current label value into the previous product label. The function in the button works fine on it's own but the problem is I'm trying to have it so that I can just pass through the arguments to it from the original genie, but I have had no luck trying to do this. The function in the button is as such: Previous_Label(INT Current_OilCode_tag, STRING Previous_OilCode_tag) <these are the correct data types for these tags as set in citect. Which when I Set it up in the SG is: Previous_Label(?INT 1?, ?STRING 2?) In the genie Itself im using AssMetadataPopUp() and I'm just setting it up in the Metadata Section as: - Name: 1 Value: %Current_OilCode% - Name: 2 Value: %Previous_Oilcode% As said it works if i just set the button up on the Silo Page (Outside of the SuperGenie) and use it there, but having the button in the SuperGenie and trying to pass the Variable Tags into it has been a Nightmare. I should note that I went to the lengths of just Duplicating the button 20 different times and the function also was tweaked to just work for one silo each, then set the Hidden When field to: ?INT 3? <> 1 (For Silo 1 for example) then just having all of the buttons on top of each other in the SG, but much to my frustration this also did not work as all the buttons were hidden, I believe that this is because for ?INT 3? I was simply just typing in 1, not an actual variable tag so I am yet to test this. Hopefully someone here can perhaps spot something I'm doing wrong. Also I can upload the actual codes, I just don't have them on me right now. Many Thanks.
  11. Hi Friends, I am working on a small project that needs to log data from energy-meters (about 200) onto a SQL database. I have written a function for logging in Cicode that is connecting to a DSN with multiple tables. It gets the customer's Id, one by one in a loop from one table assigns the readings, and logs it to another table. Problem observed with my method is that the loop does not move beyond the first entry in the Cust_ID table. I suspect that there may be a need to use different handles for different tables. OR - The TagRead() function is blocking further execution of the loop. PS:- The use of SqlNext(hSql) has worked well in a similar function to load combo-boxes with All Cust_IDs. Something causes the While loop to end Greatly will appreciate any help in resolving the error.

  12. I have 4 General Electric Multilin PQMII-T20-A power quality meters connected on a daisy chain RS485 2 wire half duplex network with baud of 19200. they are addressed as nodes 1,2,4 & 6. the RS485 network is connected to a Modbus Ethernet/RS485 convertor which i have setup with IP 10.15.35.126 for my network, the port used in the convertor documentation is port 502. i need some help to get Citect to pull a tag out of this network. my issue is the comms setup of citect. i have attached my screen shot of citect setup (Citect is V7.2). thanks in advance for any help on this issue.
  13. Hi friends, In genie substitutions For example, in a genie%Tag%_MaxValue, %Tag%_MinValue, %Tag%_PV, are done for subsitution of %Tag% with TIT_101as TIT_101_MaxValue,TIT_101_MinValue, TIT_101_PV . In this example, when the genie is pasted, we give TT_101 as the genie's argument. However, if sTag is a string variable, that can take multiple values, -say TIT_101, TIT_102, TIT_103 I find it does not work. When I try using sTag in the genie, %sTag%_XXX it is not getting accepted. So also referencing the prefix as "%sTag%"_XXX is again useless. What is needed to substitute %Tag% by the value of a string variable? so that the tag name referenced is correctly calculated by concatenation of the prefix? Regards,
