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
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.
