    Hi,

    Let me start by saying I’m not in any way trained to set up SCADA software. I have basic networking skills, and have only watched your youtube videos and skimmed through the forums…

    I’d like to use Rapid SCADA to pull registers from my GE Rx3i PLC. I have windows 7 and am connected wirelessly to a router connected to my PLC.

    I’ve done all of the initial setups from what your modbus video 1&2 said and when I open the communicator, it is connected but I’m not seeing the correct value. I think my issue is that it doesn’t know what register to pull and I’m unsure where to enter that. Also, that register is a REAL value so I don’t know if I’m reading it correctly or where to set that. In the communicators device data tab, the channel column is empty and my commands is at 0/0.

    Besides the mentioned issues above, I probably have other connection or setup issues. Do you also have over the phone tech support or can you view my setup remotely to diagnose obvious issues with my setup.

    Thanks,

    Martin Ettinger

    Hi Martin,

    I have sent you an email that contains details of free and commercial support options.

    I’d like to go with option 2 but in the meantime, please see below.

    I got the channel to dispay in the communicator but I’m still seeing a value of 0.

    The register on my PLC that I’m trying to pull is 46002R and is a REAL value but I don’t know where to tell the software that 46002 is the register I want to pull.

    Looking at my admin input channels, I’m not understanding what “Number” is and what “Signal” is… please explain.

    Thanks,

    Marty
