Differential pressure switch with low range
High-precision device from United Electric Controls covers 0 to 140 in. water, serving as gage and switch.
United Electric Controls (UE) has introduced the One Series low differential pressure range for its popular One Series electronic/solid-state switch product line, covering 0 to 140 in. of water column. UE says the new K10 differential pressure range allows the family to be used in applications where high precision and excellent repeatability are required for air draft flow monitoring, filter clogging, positive pressure for clean rooms, hazardous gas detection, and tank level control. The series features welded 316L stainless steel differential pressure sensors suitable for air or liquid service.
The One Series combines an onboard digital display and 4-20 mA output, providing the functionality of a switch, gage, and transmitter, capable of process trending and predictive maintenance monitoring. With a choice of weather-proof, explosion-proof, and intrinsically safe configurations, the One Series provides low differential pressure measurement in harsh and hazardous areas, and is suitable for SIL2 safety instrumented systems.

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.
