Remote measurement display aims at environmental applications
Setra Systems introduces readouts for analog voltage signals used in specialized monitoring.
Setra Systems, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of pressure measurement instrumentation for industrial, HVAC/R, semiconductor, energy, environmental, medical, pharmaceutical, and meteorological requirements, has introduced its Remote Measurement Display, allowing for clear and remote viewing capabilities of real-time HVAC/R conditions, ensuring effective climate control management within a variety of critical environments.
The CE-compliant display accepts 0-10 and 0-5 Vdc analog signals from virtually any sensing technology, including temperature, humidity, CO2, pressure, and others. The unit displays sensor output with user-calibrated zero and span adjustment capabilities. Its 1-in., 3.5 digit LCD may be viewed from across a room with reduced glare. It is also wipe-down capable, with no special maintenance requirements. These flush mount style units are easy to install and compatible with standard 4-11/16-in. electrical box configurations.
The new display is designed for direct compatibility with Setra Systems Humidity Sensors (SRH) with temperature output. Units may be shipped as a factory calibrated bundle along with the measurement display for faster installation and commissioning. The compact size, versatility and real-time remote viewing capabilities make it suitable for use in hospital surgical suites, pharmaceutical clean rooms, or other critical environmentally controlled spaces. Units are available in choice of red, green, or blue, and may be ordered as either a single or dual 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.
