Controllers: Integrated HMI / PLC units offer higher speed inputs, outputs
The high-speed Vision130 and Vision350 "TR" models can handle inputs up to 200kHz, while high-speed outputs are able to support 5Hz to 200kHz. This enables the user to implement up to three independent Pulse Train Output (PTO) instruction sets at one time for accurate step-motor control.
Unitronics' combination PLC / HMI controllers now offer higher speed inputs and outputs. The high-speed Vision130 and Vision350 "TR" models can handle inputs up to 200kHz, while high-speed outputs are able to support 5Hz to 200kHz. This enables the user to implement up to three independent Pulse Train Output (PTO) instruction sets at one time for accurate step-motor control. TR models enhance the versatility of the product line to provide even more flexibility when configuring a system's precise requirements. The high-speed I/O connections offer particular benefits to the motion industry, or wherever speed control is required.

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.
