Big Data on Small Screens?
How do we make something understandable, useful, and powerful on a screen with much less real estate? It’s an interesting challenge and one that we had to apply ourselves to in order to build the TopView Mobile Web App (“MWA”).

Exele TopView Assits Power Load Balancing
Balancing the supply and demand of electricity is a dynamic challenge and a mandatory requirement for electricity providers on the grid. In the UK, Endeco Technologies provides CashBack from National Grid and energy savings from energy bill optimisation. EXELE TopView alarm monitoring and notification software is used as a user facing tool in the Network Operations Centre for recognizing and acknowledging when faults and events in the system are detected.
Using a Lookup Table for Alarm Limits
Setting different alarm limits based on conditions
“Our alarm limit changes based on the current temperature reading. Is there a way to dynamically change the alarm limit in TopView?”
Yes. You can do this with TopView Logic Functions.
Hiding Objects with Lenses
‘Cloaking’ device uses ordinary lenses to hide objects across range of angles. Scientists have recently developed several ways—some simple and some involving new technologies—to hide objects from view.”
