Plantnode Generates Notification and Escalation


Oakville, ON, Canada -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/09/2006 --A typical manufacturing plant floor example of such monitoring capabilities:

As the cabinet temperature reaches the Hi limit, an email notification can be sent to alert of a potentially dangerous situation. This information can help show time of day heat conditions that exist especially during hot summer months. Many maintenance related problems occur due to high temperature and humidity.

Email Notifications and alarming are key elements to real time plant floor monitoring and responsiveness. Systems must have the capacity to:

• Connect to any plant floor equipment
• Web-based reporting
• Email notifications & alarming
• Integrate with enterprise systems
• Remotely manage hundreds of machines
• Automate data entry

Alarms (LED status) and email notifications must be configurable for any real or derived signal.

Configurable notifications must be available when particular signals reach a pre-defined upper or lower limit.

Named executives must be notified when a specific machine state occurs.
