  • FTP function

    I currently use the CMore EA9 to log data from a DirectSoft PLC and upload it to an FTP server. I would like to use the data logging functions of the BRX PLC, but the BRX does not offer FTP instructions. Is there a workaround, or are FTP instructions planned for a future Do-more release?

    The current plan (soon-ish) is to add FTP, rather than try to use HTTP for file access. This would be server side (BRX would serve access to files located on BRX), and would not be a client (instruction to send to server). You can already send a file via email.

      Do you have a target date for implementation, and is the HTTP function still planned? (for example, to send files to a SQL database)

        HTTPCMD instruction is due out very, very soon. It will allow you to access REST APIs, which should make it possible to get into many/most DBs.

          As of DMD 2.6.2, is there any way to make a file on the BRX SD card available to a C-more?

            Not at this time unfortunately.

            I suppose it could be done by reading it and passing it manually via tags,but that would be a pretty large programming effort on your part.

              Not as of 2.6.2. We plan for 2.7 to be able to write to an FTP server, but I'm not familiar with C-more's FTP support.

                The ability to write out to an FTP server from the BRX is what I really need, so that's perfect! Do you have a release estimate for 2.7?
