Features that I was familiar with in SCADAConnect no longer appear to be available as of SELECTseries 5. Can I still access tools such as demand inversing and others from the "SCADAconnect" manager window?


To access the legacy SCADAConnect manager and it's tools as of SELECTseries 5, go to Tools > SCADAConnect Simulator, then click the SCADAConnect button at the top (5th button from the left). You can then access the legacy SCADAConnect tools from here. 

Note: this button will only appear in models that were created in older versions and contain legacy SCADAConnect information. The Legacy SCADAConnect tools are not otherwise available in new models.

Note also that starting with CONNECT Edition Update 2, SCADAConnect Simulator is also no longer available/visible inside WaterCAD. You will need to upgrade to WaterGEMS in order to use it.

If you need to access the old SCADAConnect tools with a new model, there is a workaround that you can try. First, open a model that already has legacy SCADAConnect information. If you do not have one available, you can open WaterGEMS's "Example5.wtg," which has legacy SCADAConnect information. Next, open your model. When you open SCADAConnect Simulator, you will have access to the legacy SCADAConnect tools. 

For example Demand Inversing:

Please keep in mind that this workaround may not be supported in future versions.
