Alarm and notification software adds RSS capability

Exele releases RSS capability for TopView Alarm and notification software. RSS feeds of current alarms for OPC/SCADA, OSIsoft PI, SQL (OLEDB/ODBC) and PerfMon data sources can be viewed on desktop, mobile, or tablet devices, embedded into web pages and even displayed on hardware devices such as LED tickers and factory message displays.


Exele Information Systems has announced major enhancements to their TopView software suite with the release of TopView 6.10 with Alarm RSS capability. TopView Alarm RSS capability allows users to subscribe to one or more TopView Alarm feeds from a variety of desktop and mobile devices.

As with other RSS feeds, the TopView Alarm RSS feed can contain multiple feed items (alarms), item headlines (alarm message), item description (alarm details) and links. “With TopView’s new Alarm RSS Feeds our customers can view TopView alarms, alarm details, and open customized links per alarm event using a desktop, mobile, or tablet RSS Reader” said Mike Fishman, Exele VP. “This provides TopView users even more alarm notification and monitoring options.”

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
