Head and DIN rail mounted temperature transmitters
AutomationDirect’s ProSense line now includes temperature transmitters in programmable and non-programmable models.
Non programmable ProSense models are available for thermocouple types J, K, or T, along with three-wire type Pt100 RTDs. Head-mounted models can be mounted in any ProSense connection head or any DIN Form B sensor head and are powered by 8 to 35 Vdc. 35 mm DIN rail-mount models are powered by 12 to 35 Vdc. The transmitters are reverse-polarity protected and output is a linearized two-wire 4-20 mA current loop.
Programmable models are available in both head-mount and DIN rail-mount styles. Compatible with a variety of thermocouple and RTD types, models feature linear resistance of 10 to 400 Ω and 10 to 2,000 Ω with Fahrenheit and Celsius selectability. Head-mount models are powered by 8 to 35 Vdc and DIN rail-mount models are powered by 12 to 35 Vdc; both styles are reverse-polarity protected.
The free downloadable XT-Soft PC software is a utility program that allows users to configure programmable temperature transmitters. Simply connect the transmitter to the PC via an XT-USB configuration cable.

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.
