HMI/SCADA software certified for Windows 7
Copa-Data's zenon 6.50 HMI/SCADA software fully accepts Microsoft Windows 7 security criteria.
Copa-Data announced that its zenon 6.50 industrial process control and visualization software has received certification for Microsoft Windows 7, meaning it fully supports the new operating system's quality and security standards. Located in Princeton, New Jersey, Copa-Data USA Corp. is a subsidiary of Copa-Data GmbH, an HMI/SCADA software vendor based in Salzburg, Austria. Clients include Coca-Cola, BMW and DuPont.
zenon 6.50, released in January 2010. features many system and graphic enhancements. zenon users can now benefit from these using Windows 7, in addition to Microsoft Vista and XP.
Markus Helbok , senior consultant at Copa-Data, said, "Having zenon 6.50 compatible with Windows 7 means it fully accepts the Windows 7 security criteria. The user account control implemented in Windows 7 is designed to prevent important system components from being damaged by a virus or malware. However, this results in limitations for any application developer who may not be able to write directly to the Windows directory, or who can't access certain areas of the registry. Application developers won't have this problem with zenon 6.50."

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.
