I'm using FreeScada to visualize an RS-485 network of temperature controllers. For this I'm using the chart function and the SQLite database facilities.
1) I'm getting the data in and out allright but have some issues with the chart function: The hi/lo ranges are initially set to -1,1, but if you want to set them to 200,300 you get an error message that the lower value should be lower‚Ä¶ If you then do -200,200 it works and also 0,300 works. Sometimes the designer mode accepts a range and the runtime will then not accept the resulting case.
2) In the SQLIte database I cannot change the 1000ms value, I change it, save it, but it still comes back 1000, even after leaving the program. (I'm getting the data in my database)
3) I had issues with the chart function running on a Dutch Windows XP; The hi/lo range came out as -1;1 iso -1,1. This could be a country setting issue, but then the problem as described in 1) still happens. You may want to check in your software whether you are installing it on a US/UK based Windows and otherwise exit in the setup fase.
4) You can't see which version one is using of freescada, you can check for updates but sometimes it says there is a new one which is not true.
Keep up the good work!
