The Thursday, Oct. 19, 2010, at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT/11 a.m. PT also will be available for viewing in the Control Engineering webcast archive. Register for the live event or view the archived information at www.controleng.com/webcasts.
Ethernet application advice includes the following:
- Ethernet can make industrial networks better and easier to use;
- Some applications will benefit from a redundant Ethernet architecture;
- SCADA Ethernet applications can stream video to verify why an alarm is going off, confirming gauge readings;
- Harsh-duty Ethernet hardware can add reliability in rugged environments; and
- Ethernet use can benefit safety applications.
The Control Engineering webcast is sponsored by Molex and Moxa.
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.
