To better utilize the intelligence built into the iQ Series of Gas Analyzers, setting up the email server is an important step. After email has been configured, customers will be able to receive email notifications after an alarm or alert is triggered, have direct connection to Thermo Fisher Scientific Technical Support Engineers, and be able to email the Health Check Report to yourself or co-workers. Below are instructions for setting up the email server:

  • Work with your IT department to determine the required:
    • SMTP Server Address
    • SMTP Server Port #
    • Static IP Address
  • Navigate to the following menu:
    • Home, Settings, Communication, Email Server (SMTP)
  • Enter the Server Address & Port # into the their respective menus
  • In the “From Email Address” menu, enter a valid email format. The email address does not need to be an actual address, it is just for populating the “From” field in the email so the email goes to your Inbox and not Junk Mail. For example:
  • Navigate to the following menu:
    • Home, Settings, Communications, Wired TCP/DHCP
  • If “DHCP” is enabled, press that button to disable it
  • Now you can enter the Static IP Address into the “Static IP Address” menu
  • Reboot the instrument for the new IP address to get updated

The instrument is now configured to send emails. Don’t forget, the instrument can send an email to you, but you cannot email the instrument. You should enter at least one email address into the “User Contact Information” menu, but you can enter up to 11 email addresses. This is important if you decide to utilize the “Email Health Check Report to Technical Support” feature. Tech Support would need an email address to reply to. The Health Check Report is a zip file that contains all of the diagnostic data required to evaluate most issues.

Once this is completed you will be ready to enable the new Alert Assistant coming soon via the latest firmware in April 2019.
