Analog IO modules added to PLC line
AutomationDirect has added discrete and analog I/O modules to the Click PLC line as well as four-channel RTD and thermocouple modules.
AutomationDirect has added discrete and analog I/O modules to the Click PLC line. The 24 V dc combination discrete modules include eight-point dc input/eight-point dc sinking or sourcing output models and a four-point dc input/four-point relay output model.
The 24 V dc four-channel analog input modules with 13-bit resolution include 0-20 mA current input and 0-10 V voltage input versions; 12-bit resolution four-channel output modules in 4-20 mA current and 0-10 V voltage versions. Also added is a four-channel input/two-channel output module in current and voltage versions. This module features 13-bit resolution inputs and 12-bit resolution outputs.
Four-channel RTD and thermocouple modules with 16-bit resolution have also been added. The RTD input module accepts Pt100, Pt1000, jPT100, Cu10, Cu25, and Ni120 elements; resistive ranges are also supported. The thermocouple input module supports nine thermocouple types as well as voltage ranges.

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.
