Electropneumatic controller series offers PID control
Emerson Process Management's Tescom ER5000 Series of electropneumatic controllers are a microprocessor-based PID controller designed to ensure desired pressure even as system process parameters change.
Emerson Process Management's Tescom ER5000 Series of electropneumatic controllers bring precise closed loop pressure control to a wide range of applications across industries. The ER5000 is a microprocessor-based PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) controller, providing localized control and automation with exceptional accuracy (0.1% FS) and rapid response time (25msec) to ensure desired pressure even as system process parameters change. Eliminating deficiencies of mechanical pressure regulators such as droop and decaying inlet effect, this easy step toward automation also reduces human error and fatigue, and provides for remote control and data acquisition capabilities.
The ER5000 can be used as a standalone unit to control the pressure of clean, dry inert gases from 0-100 psig / 0-6.9 bar, or be connected to any pneumatically actuated regulator or valve. Used with TESCOM regulators, the ER5000 provides pressure control of gases and liquids from vacuum to 30,000 psig / 2068 bar, with a Cv of up to 12+, and can be used in a wide range of applications across many industries including oil & gas, petrochemical & refining, aerospace, and industrial manufacturing & testing.
Designed exclusively for the ER5000, the ERTune software offers easy setup, tuning and operation. Save and download profiles, monitor and optimize system performance, leverage data acquisition and conditional control capabilities, set input / output signals, and easily troubleshoot with the automated diagnostic tests.
As a standalone controller or part of a distributed control system, ten configurations are offered to satisfy all levels of control and automation requirements.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
