System minerals library updated
System 800xA Minerals Library 5.1/4, by ABB is a fully parameterized process control system solution designed to enhance productivity in the cement and minerals industries.
ABB's Systems 800xA Minerals Library 5.1/4 is the new version of their process control system library and is designed to reduce operating costs and increase productivity of cement and mineral processing plants.
ABB’s System 800xA Minerals Library 5.1/4 is a suite of object-oriented software control modules, which make it possible to design process control and power applications in an efficient and fully-parameterized manner. Successfully operating at more than 300 cement and minerals sites worldwide, the technology increases standardization, functionality and quality of process control software over the complete life cycle of a production facility. This minimizes downtime caused by abnormal situations and allows the facility’s production process and assets to be efficiently operated and maintained.
Minerals Library 5.1/4 comes with the following features:
- Control diagrams for better process-oriented visualization of the application software
- Integration into Engineering Base, AUCOTEC’s plant engineering tool, which is successfully implemented in ABB’s cement and mining projects
- Advanced drive and equipment group modules for today’s demanding material handling, grinding and mineral processing applications
- Extended parameterized solutions, which further reduce implementation costs and increase functionality
- Support of ABB’s System 800xA 5.1 Feature Pack 4

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.
