  1. FX3U-ENET Email Function

    Hi, I am looking for some guidance relating to the FX3U-ENET module. Note, I am only a beginner trying to learn about the FX-PLC as I go. My aim is to have various events in the FX3U PLC send an email with some information within the email text body. The programming of the PLC for the event sequence seems to be going well but getting the ENET module to send the message is my problem. I am programming the ENET module parameters using FX-Configurator which appears to take the commands and that seems OK Reading the ENET manual it appears that the email server, DNS server and Proxy Server, need to be within the same local network as the PLC. See the page I have attached that states that the "Access range of the Ethernet module" is within the local network, and that "the Ethernet module does not send and receive emails directly via the internet connection, the mail server sends and receives emails". So taking that information at face value, it appears I need a mail server and a DNS server? My question is that correct and is there any easy option to achieve this? I have had a play around installing hmailserver on my PC as my local mail server and it seems to work. The message starts to send but I get an Error on the ENET module, checking FX-Configurator diagnostics it says i have a C103 error,  DNS settings incorrect.• Check the DNS mail address./ Check the content of the DNS setting . So this may refer to the DNS server needing to be on the local network? Setting up a DNS server, let alone a mail server seems to be a whole lot of trouble and not practical for the task of sending email messages. Is there an easier option? Am I reading the manual correct relating to the servers within the local network? Any thoughts? Thanks
  2. Hi guys,  I am sorry for posting same issue over and over but  I really want to get over with this one. The way PLC program setup and actual structure of rack is different.   Could it be a problem when I try send an email from ControlLogix by using MSG command? When I put 1,2 in the path field, It shows Au200_2 but it is supposed to be Au200_3. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time  I really appreciate it.

  5. I am having issues trying to send an email using the message instruction and the ENBT module. Attached are snippets of my configuration of my message instruction and the error code that i am getting. I had IT look into it on their side and i shouldn't have any network switch configurations that is blocking the successful delivery of the message. Anyone have any ideas what could be the issue? Thanks!
  6. I'm using AuthSmtp as my mail provider and I need to be able to specify the port number. I can't find a place in the rslogix 500 channel setup to put the port id. Currently I'm giving just giving it the host name 'authsmtp.com. I did try the ip address with the port number xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx but that didn't work either. Any thoughts are appreciated.
  7. HERE’S IS A QUICK WAY TO SEND EMAIL (TEXT) MESSAGES FROM THE PLC Sending email messages from the PLC sounds like an easy task. However, very few applications do this on the production floor. This is probable due to the networks involved and using authentication can be complicated. In our example we will use a restricted Gmail SMTP server so no authentication will be required. We will walk through sending email and text messages from the PLC to Google Gmail. Once in your Gmail account, the message can be automatically forwarded to another verified email or SMS text message address. HERE’S IS A QUICK WAY TO SEND EMAIL (TEXT) MESSAGES FROM THE PLCThe PLC used in this case is the Do-More from Automation Direct. The software is Do-More Designer. Here is a blog post that I thought was good to share. Let me know what you think. Garry http://www.accautomation.ca
  8. I can send out an emails when certain conditions have been met, this all work great, is there a way to send out to more then 1 email address? Micrologix 1100, rslogix500 I can't figure out how to send email to more then 1 recipient. Also why would this not be working? Emails work just fine but if I send to (Phone number xxxxxxxxxx@vtext.com) the phone will never get the message. (It's a working phone as it is mine) Thanks
