Confused about setting up IP information for PLC email system.

Recommended Posts

My main confusion right now is when I'm setting up the IP address and all of that for the PLC wouldn't I need to get the information of where the PLC is going to actually be used instead of the information from the production facility? Currently the PLCs are going to be sent out with the product they're attached to and used to control them but also send emails whenever alerts are triggered, would it be easiest to use the HMI and let the people plug in all their info for it instead of whatever workaround I would have to figure out or am I misunderstanding how the whole email thing works? I understand that the emails would be sent through our server but wouldn't all the other information have to come from them?

Yes, you need to have the user input the information for their server, IP address, etc. Joe Tauser's program that I linked to you earlier shows you what needs to be done.

Okay, I was just trying to get a handle on how much of that program I could use for my specific need and what I had to change, its good to know I don't have to tweak that too much.

Thanks again.
