Hello all, is it possible to send notifications by email on limit detection using VBA in process book ? Thanks in advance for your help.
Welcome to the community! Sure, it is indeed possible to have VBA send email from ProcessBook. However, I'd like to ask if there is any reason you're not taking advantage of this functionality with PI Notifications? What kind of limits are you trying to detect? I think it would be much simpler and maintainable to try to configure this through PI Notifications.
Yes, you can send Email using VBA.
We have purchased a license for PI Server and we have thought about PI Notifications to send Emails. BUT, by using PI Notfications, we need to purchase a new license of PI AF Server and upgrade the hole system. What do you think ?
As long as you have a valid license for a PI Server, that should include both PI AF and PI Notifications. Otherwise, for licensing questions you can always feel free to talk to your account manager. Let me know if you are not sure who this is.
Take a look at our TopView PI product.
There is a free version that supports up to 5 PI tags for creating alarm conditions. You'll be able to send email notifications, SMS notifications (GSM cellular modem), voice call-out notification plus you'll have things like:
