Dual output pressure, temperature transducers
These transducers combine both pressure sensor and temperature sensor in one compact package for measuring dynamic and static pressures and temperatures.
The PT170 and PT17XX series transducers combine both pressure sensor and temperature sensor in one compact package for measuring dynamic and static pressures and temperatures. The PT170 provides pressure output in millivolts-per-volt and is designed to provide a variety of high level analog and digital outputs. Both sensor types are welded stainless steel, and incorporate reliable bonded foil strain gauge technology and durable RTD elements. All units are manufactured with shock and vibration protection.
The pressure/temperature sensors also offer user-specific process connections and electrical terminations. Temperature probe dimensions are designed specifically for the user’s applications. A 4-20 mA output version of the series PT17XX is available where intrinsically safe requirements are specified. The model PT1714 is the CANbus version of the series PT17XX.
These dual output pressure/temperature transducers provide significant cost savings where pressure and temperature measurements are concerned. No thermowells are needed; process connections are simplified; sensor inventory is reduced; and reduced wiring make the sensors applicable to process plants and industrial automation and control.

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.
