Exele TopView® 6.0 software provides advanced methods for constantly monitoring data measurements from instruments and devices throughout a plant and its remote facilities and delivering customizable alarms to designated personnel when a problem occurs.
User-designated alarms can be delivered as emails, cell phone messages, pager notices, text-to-speech voice annunciation, audible alarms over speakers, and text messages.
TopView 6.0 software can efficiently monitor thousands of process measurements. Users can create custom messages for each tag point, so personnel can receive a detailed description of the problem as well as its exact location. Also, remote access and acknowledge communication is supported through dial-in phone, PC, and Windows Mobile devices.
Installation, set-up, and start-up of the software is fast and easy. In addition to providing alarms on current tag values, it can send alarms based on calculations and operations.
