  1. Pv +7 - How to create email body

    I'm trying to send an email out of the HMI and can't figure out how to build the body to contain all the info that I need. I can get the email to send fine and I can include one tag which works correctly. I though that I should be able to build the text that I need using an expression but I can't seem to figure that out. Here's what I want: Flow totalizer = 'tag' Last 24 Hour flow = 'tag' Last 24 Hour High flow = 'tag'   So just three lines ( I know there is an 82 char limiit) containing a little bit of text and some tags. I thought that I should be able to do something like: "Flow Totalizer" + 'tag' but that doesn't work. It validates but I get no output.   Any help would be very much appreciated. I normaly use a different brand HMI so I'm not really all that up to speed on PV. thank you.    
  2. I got it working. thank you!  
  3. Thanks I wondered if it wouldn't do that but I can't find where to set that up. All I find are linx connections. I know I'm just missing something basic.  
  4. I'm trying to develop an email application that will run an a PV+7. I've gotten it far enough that the email activex control quit posting error strings, but my mail server is not receiving anything. I realized that the HMI doesn't know how to get outside via a gateway address. I know I can set it in the HMI itself but it isn't available to me right now so I'm trying to test using the 'test application' feature.  I guess I just don't know where to setup a gateway address in factorytalkview me.    
  5. how to extract Red Lion Data and send it to an External DB

    I do this using Crimson 3.1. You just create a data log in crimson that contain the data that you want. Then just enable the Sql Sync service and set the DB parameters. The data table will be created automatically also.
  6. Micrologix 1400 series C

    I found the docs on Rockwell's website. Version 'C' was introduced in 2017 but it doesn't show up in the processor options inside Rslogix. If you have Rslogix version 8.3 or later it will just work on any of the options shown. My problem turned out to be that the file I was using was created initially on an older version of Rslogix Micro starter version 9.00. As a test, I created an empty file using RsLogix micro version 11 and it worked. I then created an empty file using Rslogix micro starter and it faulted. Then it was just a matter of of creating a new file and copying the program files over and importing the ascii files with all the symbols, names, etc.   
  7. Micrologix 1400 series C

    I found it on the Rockwell site. It says that micro does support it with all versions 8.3 and newer. I'm on the latest, 11.  
  8. Micrologix 1400 series C

    Well I did find something one the Rockwell site that said that my version 11 should work with Series C. Not sure where to go at this point. 
  9. I just went to a customer site this afternoon to load software onto a new machine. When I put the processor in 'run' it immediately faulted and the error said the download didn't match the unit. So I looked at the model to make sure it was a series 'b' and it was a series 'C'.  My rslogix 500 micro doesn't show a 'c' series in the list and I have not been able to figure out how to update it. The link under the 'help' pulldown fails and I've tried to find it on the rockwell site with no luck.  Has anyone run across this and if so how did you resolve it. I'm still looking and I'll post the answer if I find it.  
  10. I'm new to using RSLogix 5000 and I'm not sure how to handle memory protection.  I build recipes from an HMI and store the data in tag arrays on the PLC. I'm used to doing this with the micrologix plc line and in Rslogic 500 I could simply mark the data file to not overwrite when downloading. Is it possible to do something similar with Rslogix 5000? if not, is there a better way to handle recipes? I just don't want to overwrite recipe data by downloading a program update.  
  11. Image primitive for Red Lion Crimson 2.0

    Have  you contacted Red Lion support about this?
  12. Looking for PanelView suggestions

    Sorry it took me a couple days to get back to this. Yes I'm going to use one of the ml1400s just to handle a bunch of analog io. I'm just going to msg that data every few seconds to the other unit. thanks
  13. Looking for PanelView suggestions

    One other question please. This system will have 2 micrologix controllers. One will just be used as an IO device. The other will do all the processing and needs to be able to read from the first controller. Does the Panelview support passing tags from one controller to the other? thanks
  14. Crimson 3 Timestamp String

    Gareth can you post what your are trying to do. I may have some code that I can provide.  
  15. Looking for PanelView suggestions

    Thanks to both of you. I think the PV+7 is going to be the winner.  I'm the loser :)...
