Shunt, CE, or potentiometer options are also available. Basic measuring configurations include gage, absolute, sealed gage, compound gage, vacuum, differential, and barometric pressure. Sanitary models and USB outputs are also available. Considering all the possible options, the MM Series is available in over one-million different configurations with lead times of one-week or less, assuring a precise match to nearly any application requirement with fast delivery.

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.
