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.”
TopView is a powerful, easy-to-configure process monitoring and alarm management tool that works seamlessly with existing SCADA, PLC, Historian, and Database products. TopView is used extensively wherever data measurements need to be monitored - wind farms, oil & gas, water & wastewater, electric power generation; process industries such as chemical, pulp & paper, pharmaceutical and food processing; building automation and IT system performance.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
