CitectSCADA – Dot Matrix Alarm Printing (Problem)

November 30th, 2016 No comments

If you are having trouble with alarm printing to dot matrix (via DOS-PRINT)

Suspect trouble: Your alarm only printed once, after that you can’t print anymore even using manual command/script.

here is some trick to make your alarm print works:

1st Step:

configure your device (printer) as usual configuration (I assume you have configured DOS-PRINT)

2ND Step:

This is the main trick, we need to Flush the printer (In my case, I put every 3 second)

and the function PrinterFlush() should be created in cicode.

And here is the cicode function:

 

Done.

OPC Common Error Code

August 26th, 2014 No comments

Berikut adalah kumpulan error yang sering terjadi ketika anda mencoba mengkoneksikan OPC client ke OPC Server, Error-error ini biasanya muncul pada sisi client dan beberapa error yang sudah diketahui tersedia solusi untuk penyelesaiannya yang bisa jadi ada pada sisi server maupun client.

 

HEX Description Solution
 0x80010108  The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.  Re-initialize your OPC Server Connection.
 0x80040004  There is no connection for this connection ID
 0x80040005  Need to run the object to perform this operation
 0x80040007  Uninitialized object
 0x80040154  Class not registered The OPC Server, or a component needed to make the OPC connection is not registered with Windows. This may mean that you simply need to register a DLL or OCX file.
 0x80040155  Interface not registered  The OPC Server does not support the interface that you are trying to connect to. Examples may include Item Browsing, Asynchronous I/O or OPC DA v2.x or 3.x interfaces etc.
 0x800401f3  Invalid class string  The GUID/CLSID of the specified OPC Server is not valid.
 0x80040200 -Unable to impersonate DCOM
Client
-Unknown OLE status code
 DCOM security problem, typically on the Client side. This error typically occurs when trying to specify a callback address for Asynchronous I/O.
 0x80040202  Cannot Connect  Error typically occurs when a call is made to Advise on the connection point. This often
means that OPCPROXY.DLL is not the same version on your different computers.
 0x80070002 The system cannot find the file specified  Re-install your software.
 0x80070005  Access is denied. You need to configure your DCOM Security settings. See our DCOM Tutorial:
http://www.softwaretoolbox.com/dcom
 0x80070057  The parameter is incorrect.  The OPC Server has rejected your request,
indicating that the parameter(s) you specified
are not valid for the type of request being
made. You will need more details on the
actual OPC calls being made between the
Client and Server.
 0x8007041d  The service did not respond
to the start or control request
in a timely fashion.
 Specific to Windows Services. The service did
not start within the allowed time-frame. This
indicates an initialization problem with the
Windows service
 0x800705b4  This operation returned
because the timeout period
expired.
 This is a timeout. You may need to increase
your timeout settings.
 0x800706ea  A floating-point underflow
occurred at the RPC server.
 0x80070725  Incompatible version of the
RPC stub.
 0x80080005  Server execution failed  There is a problem with the OPC Server
preventing it from being started by Windows.
This may be the result of file-permissions,
DCOM Security permissions, or a lack of
resources.
 0x80004002  No such interface supported  The OPC Server does not support the
interface that you are trying to connect to.
Examples may include Item Browsing,
Asynchronous I/O or OPC DA v2.x or 3.x
interfaces etc.
 0x80004005   Unspecified error  The most common message seen, that yields
the least information. In these cases you often
need to check the event-logs at your OPC
Server for more information.
 0x8000401a   The server process could not
be started because the
configured identity is
incorrect. Check the
username and password.
DCOM Configuration permissions. Modify the
identity that the application should run under,
perhaps specify a named account or choose
“Interactive User’.
 0x800706ba  The RPC server is
unavailable.
 The OPC Server could not be contacted. This
is usually the result of a firewall blocking the
application.
