  1. From such humble beginnings: Old "Unitronics" equipment on Ebay For when the listing goes away: "VINTAGE EXERCISE/TONER BY UNITRONICS THE FIGURE-TRON ll"
  2. Thanks, Ofir. I'm sure there's something in the setup or server connection that I'm getting wrong. Will keep working at it. Knowing what those SI values mean helps.
  3. Can you tell me what SI 145 through 148 mean when they state: 0- Initialized to UDP, closed 2- Initialized to TCP, listen 3- ?? (my V230 shows this while trying to connect) 6- ?? (my V230 shows this when connected to PC on socket 1) 14- Initialized to UDP, ready (my V230 shows this for TCP initialized socket before/after it fails to connect) I'm working on the details of sending via the ISP and mail account, but if it won't connect then that doesn't really matter. FYI, I can telnet in and connect to the SMTP server. Thanks!
  4. Thanks, Ofir. I do have Socket 2 set as TCP Master. I also have SB 149 as a NO contact in series with my e-mail FB (and as a NC contact in series with my TCP connect block for Socket 2). I basically followed the format of the e-mail example applications for the V350 (and I think the current V570 one). The MI for e-mail status never changes from 0-Idle b/c SB 149 never turns on. Can you tell me what the status msg.s I see in SI 145 through SI 148 mean? See my OP above for the integers. I am trying to connect to Yahoo, which appears to not require SSL. According to Yahoo and AT&T (ISP), I should be able to connect on port 587 since they block port 25 connections. I had to look up the IP, since they'd rather you use smtp.mail.yahoo.com. I really appreciate the help.
  5. I'm working with a V230 in attempt to get it to send out e-mail. I watched the webinar and it was a big help for understanding basic Ethernet setup. I have the V230 up and running for TCP/IP connection via Visilogic (8.6.1, FWIW) on Socket 1. I've tried setting up the e-mail ladder nets per the help and sample programs but it doesn't appear to be working yet. In the process, I've noticed a few odd things: - I only have socket init FBs for 1 (PC) and 2 (e-mail) on power up; but SBs 143 through 146 show all four sockets initialized when I go online - SIs 145 through 148 show 14, 6, 14, and 2; when I try to send an e-mail, SB 147 shows 3 for a while then reverts back to 14 after a few seconds The help shows what 2 and 14 mean for these SIs (not that they make sense for this app). What about 3 and 6? I don't think I'm getting Socket 2 to connect, so it never sends the msg b/c SB 149 is a N.O. contact in series before the e-mail FB. FYI, I'm trying to use a Yahoo acct for SMTP outgoing on port 587 b/c my ISP appears to block port 25. I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks.
  6. I've been working on implementing e-mail on a V230. Contemplating setting up a separate e-mail address for the controller. In doing my homework on that, I thought I saw that Gmail only allows SSL connection. That would be a problem, since the controllers won't do SSL.

    WEBINAR - Ethernet

    This session was a big help for me. I had run into dumb problems (on my part) connecting a V230 to a network. It turned out to be as simple as setting it to Slave instead of Master so that it would listen for an incoming connection. I'd really like a session on vectors and indirects. Looking forward to reviewing more webinars as well as to future ones. Thanks!
  8. Sounds like a job for a PID loop. Use your pressure reading as feedback and output your 0-10V to drive it which way you want. The Visilogic help has lots of good info about this and tuning.

    Forum speed

    Was the old forum moderated like this? I remember seeing things pretty quickly, if not immediately. Which begs the question- if it wasn't that much of a problem, why 'fix' it? There are plenty of online forums where the moderators come after the fact and delete posts or make changes where the rules have been violated. That would allow for immediate discussion amongst members but still allow the mods to keep the quality up.
  10. It's 0F in the office in Massachusetts. Ouch!
  11. Dumb question- don't you need to initialize the Ethernet port and socket via the ladder? In other words, if you don't have it set up in the ladder, I didn't think it would connect (though it might still ping based on changes made via the info screen at the PLC). I'd use the serial cable to download your app to the V570.
  12. Me too. Thought I was just late to the party.
