There’s a mantra I’ve heard often here at Lesman: If something can be automated to improve your work day, it should be. That point hit home earlier this week with one of our customers.
This particular plant reports daily water discharge to the local municipal government. The plant’s flowmeter has been installed for several years, and working fine. But on this particular day, nobody wrote down the flow total from the flowmeter, and the municipality didn’t get their report on time. And suddenly, what was a daily inconvenience has become a crisis.

One of the great things about Honeywell Trendview X-Series paperless recorders is that they communication via Ethernet. It’s great, because you can get data from your recorder anywhere on your plant network. But, since they’re network devices, you now have to understand how to troubleshoot network failures, and not just fix “regular” recorder issues.
Trendview recorders frequently connect to a local area network (LAN), so the recorded data can be easily transferred to the historian database portion of the recorder’s Trendserver Pro software (TSP). TrendServer pro uses a standard Internet file transfer protocol (FTP) to grab data from the recorder. And in a lot of cases, a software scheduler is used to grab data on a periodic basis.
So, you’re cranking along, and the recorder’s talking perfectly to the server, and then one day you see one of the dreaded FTP failure messages.
So now, what do you do to diagnose and solve the problem?
