DC transmitters with potentiometer input
Omega’s DMD4008 series of transmitters accepts a resistance input from potentiometer, slidewire, linear position, displacement, or rotational devices and has removable plugs for fast installation.
Omega’s DMD4008 series of transmitters accepts a resistance input from potentiometer, slidewire, linear position, displacement, or rotational devices and provides an optically isolated dc voltage or current output that is linearly related to the potentiometer position.
The DMD4008 is a quick setup for hundreds of I/O ranges, features external switches and table for range selection, has removable plugs for fast installation with a functional output test button and selectable sink/source for current output.
Applications include over, under, out-of-range position monitoring, remote control of position monitoring, remote control of positioning devices and simplify control of potentiometer outputs. Industries include automotive, chemical, and general manufacturing.

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.
