ZMD31150 integrated circuit from Servoflo is reported as a highly accurate, fast CMOS for amplification and correction of resistive bridge type sensors. It digitally compensates offset, sensitivity, temperature drift, and non-linearity through a 16-bit RISC microcontroller running a correction algorithm. The ZMD31150 accommodates virtually all resistive bridge sensor types (piezoresistive, metal-thin film, ceramic-thick film). Measured values are output as analog voltage or via one of the digital interfaces, ZACwire or I

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.
