New high-powered temperature controller
Oven Industries now offers high powered temperature controllers for applications greater than 15 A.
Oven Industries is now offering a high-powered temperature controller mounted on a heat sink that creates a seamless transition between heating and cooling devices, as it serves as the commander of thermoelectric modules. With a bi-directional or unidirectional H-bridge configuration, the controller includes user-friendly PC software makes it quick and simple for users to change any temperature control configurations, which eliminates signal interference or errant signals.
The software also enables the temperature controller to operate as a stand-alone unit. A computer can also be connected to the device, for retrieving data. The controller setting can be set via the remote potentiometer and optional display.

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.
