Emailing a critical temperature twice a day.

Issue

Is it possible to email a temperature value twice a day to someone via Continuum?

Environment

SendEmail

ACX2 NC2 bCX

Cause

A customer would like to get an email twice a day on a critical temperature in a lab. Emailing alarms is already done via CyberStation and Outlook. Can this be done, too?

Resolution

Yes, it can be done. And if you want it to NOT be emailed as an alarm, a good way to do it is to set up a bCX/ACX2/NC2 to be able to send email. Then write a Plain English program that uses the SendEmail function. You will need to write the temperature value to a string point. You can trigger the program to run twice a day.

The syntax for the function is:
SendEmail (to_string, subject_string, message_string, cc_string, bcc_string, signature_string)
 

See the CyberStation online help and search for SendEmail for more information.
