Network Integration - Wireless products: The NL5000-T is a high performance radio transceiver designed for voice and data communications. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.
NL5000-T is a high performance radio transceiver designed for voice and data communications. Features:
- Narrow Band (12.5 kHz) or Wide Band (25kHz) Models
- Broadband TX/RX Design: 26 MHz VHF,28 MHz 220 MHz ,20 MHz UHF
- 6 Watt (VHF/220 MHz) and 6 Watt (UHF) Models
- Frequency Ranges: 136-162 MHz 148-174 MHz 217-245 MHz 400-420 MHz 450-470 MHz
- Compact Size: 3.6-in. L x 2.3-in. W x 1.0-in H
- Frequency stability standard at 1.5 ppm for fixed applications
- Ultra-fast TX/RX attack times
- Controlled envelope TX keying
- Dual transmit and receive audio paths
- Meets FCC and IC (Canada) standards
- Programmable high/low output power
- SMD component design
- Custom frequency ranges
The NL5000-T Series is ideal for any system design where high performance RF specifications, fast TX/RX attack times, and compact size are a requirement. High specifications permit integration into systems demanding the utmost performance in congested frequency environments. This compact design makes the NL5000-T Series perfect as a retrofit to RNet and JSLM installations. Direct modulation with low distortion and low group delay result in a low bit-error-rate (BER) for enhanced system integrity and reliability. The Swift Lock synthesizer-loading algorithm reduces unit turn-on-time to less than 15 ms for high-speed data throughput rates, and controlled envelope keying reduces adjacent channel "key clicks," resulting in spectrum-friendly operation. Capable of half and full-channel spacing operation, the NL5000-T Series can be installed in systems where re-farming compliant narrowband frequencies have been assigned.

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.
