Eight-channel thermocouple conditioner
The Sensor Connection has expanded its line of measurement and control instrumentation with 8 Channel Type K Thermocouple Amplifier Module.
The Sensor Connection has expanded its line of measurement and control instrumentation with the addition of the model TCA-MS-K-8-A4. This 8 Channel Type K Thermocouple Amplifier Module converts the low output voltage signal from 8 Type K thermocouple probes to 8 independent linearized 0 to 5 Vdc output voltages. This output is ideal for interfacing to instrumentation equipment including data loggers, temperature indicators, chart recorders, and controllers. A feature of this product is the addition of an onboard single-axis +/-4g capacitive accelerometer for monitoring vibration or shock to the module.

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.
