    Hello,

    I have some questions. I hope that there number isn’t to much:

    – Mqqt what format is supported, can we have our own protocol inside MQQT? Is it possible to send data with timestamp?

    – If it’s possible to send data with timestamp, can you send/insert data for the past(like yesterday).

    – In Rights table I can’t select interface, so that I would assignee user access to interfaces.

    – Can you save data to db just on change?

    – Can you export data from DB to .cvs in selected time frame? Can you append name to data? If I export data from Administrator -> Archive there is just number of the input in input channel.

    – I see that you can access data in archive. Is it possible that data is saved to archive just when value is changed and not every minute? Can you edit or delete part of the archive (from date to date)? Can we see how much data is there for each object?

    – What database is Archive using?

    Regards,
    Jure

    Hello,

    – Mqqt what format is supported, can we have our own protocol inside MQQT? Is it possible to send data with timestamp?

    Could you explain how to insert other protocol inside MQTT?

    – If it’s possible to send data with timestamp, can you send/insert data for the past(like yesterday).

    Yes. But MQTT works with current data. You should look for Enron Modbus and OPC UA, for example. Probably, driver update would be required to support reading archive. In general, it’s possible in Rapid SCADA.

    – In Rights table I can’t select interface, so that I would assignee user access to interfaces.

    Please provide screenshots.

    – Can you save data to db just on change?

    You can do it using Database export module. In Rapid SCADA v6 we will extend this capability.

    – Can you export data from DB to .cvs in selected time frame? Can you append name to data? If I export data from Administrator -> Archive there is just number of the input in input channel.

    We can develop a required application by a contract if needed.

    – I see that you can access data in archive. Is it possible that data is saved to archive just when value is changed and not every minute?
    See above.

    – Can you edit or delete part of the archive (from date to date)?
    You can delete daily data, because every day new file is started.

    – Can we see how much data is there for each object?

    Please clarify.

    – What database is Archive using?

    Rapid SCADA uses our own engine, no 3rd party DB required. In version 6 we also will support InfluxDB and PostgreSQL.

    As you said you have your custom format for saving data and you don’t use DB. Can you tell how much would it cost if you would add option that data is saved to archive just on change?

    Please wait for version 6 for this feature.

    If I understand each object means like a “factory” or “part of factory”. Is it possible to see big is archive for each object?

    Archive size depends on number of input channels and saving period. You can collect data for 1 day and then divide by channel count.

    – Can you show to user when data was last updated?
    Yes, using a custom formula plus extra input channel.

    – If we use Chart Pro plugin can we have pie charts or some other charts?
    No. May be you should integrate with Grafana. There is a plugin available.

    – And can we have multiple variables on 1 graph?
    Yes, you need Chart Pro.

    – If we use Automatic control module can we send custom email for different alarms?
    Definitely.

    – Or is this possible without plugins?
    I think, no.

    – Is it possible to trigger alarm and send email if we lose communication with one of devices?
    Yes. You can trigger on channel status = 0 and/or events.

    For more details, please start new topic for a particular question.

    We will haev SCADA which will in total have 10.000+ input/output channels. So it is really important that we reduce how much space they would use on disk.

    Waiting until the end of the year is quite long for us. So if you could develop feature where data would save to DB/archive just on change we would be willing to pay. Is it possible develop this for current version of Rapid SCADA and what would be the price?

    Currently to export data on change, use the existing DB export module.
    The version 5 can only export data to 3rd party DB. Flexible archives possible in v6.
