The Thursday, Oct. 19, 2010, at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT also will be available for viewing in the Control Engineering webcast archive. Register for the live event or view the archived information at www.controleng.com/webcasts.
Ethernet application advice includes the following:
- Ethernet can make industrial networks better and easier to use;
- Some applications will benefit from a redundant Ethernet architecture;
- SCADA Ethernet applications can stream video to verify why an alarm is going off, confirming gauge readings;
- Harsh-duty Ethernet hardware can add reliability in rugged environments; and
- Ethernet use can benefit safety applications.
The Control Engineering webcast is sponsored by Molex and Moxa.

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.
