Electropneumatic controller series offers PID control
Emerson Process Management's Tescom ER5000 Series of electropneumatic controllers are a microprocessor-based PID controller designed to ensure desired pressure even as system process parameters change.
Emerson Process Management's Tescom ER5000 Series of electropneumatic controllers bring precise closed loop pressure control to a wide range of applications across industries. The ER5000 is a microprocessor-based PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) controller, providing localized control and automation with exceptional accuracy (0.1% FS) and rapid response time (25msec) to ensure desired pressure even as system process parameters change. Eliminating deficiencies of mechanical pressure regulators such as droop and decaying inlet effect, this easy step toward automation also reduces human error and fatigue, and provides for remote control and data acquisition capabilities.
The ER5000 can be used as a standalone unit to control the pressure of clean, dry inert gases from 0-100 psig / 0-6.9 bar, or be connected to any pneumatically actuated regulator or valve. Used with TESCOM regulators, the ER5000 provides pressure control of gases and liquids from vacuum to 30,000 psig / 2068 bar, with a Cv of up to 12+, and can be used in a wide range of applications across many industries including oil & gas, petrochemical & refining, aerospace, and industrial manufacturing & testing.
Designed exclusively for the ER5000, the ERTune software offers easy setup, tuning and operation. Save and download profiles, monitor and optimize system performance, leverage data acquisition and conditional control capabilities, set input / output signals, and easily troubleshoot with the automated diagnostic tests.
As a standalone controller or part of a distributed control system, ten configurations are offered to satisfy all levels of control and automation requirements.

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.
