Ethernet gateway for Smart Grid
This Ethernet Security Gateway protects site-to-site Ethernet communications and private networks, allowing users to maximize the benefits of a Smart Grid while minimizing security risk.
The SEL-3620 Ethernet Security Gateway protects site-to-site
Ethernet communications as well as private networks, allowing users to maximize
the benefits of a Smart Grid while minimizing security risk. Easy to use and
tough enough for harsh environments, the gateway operates with existing IT and
control systems, using an intuitive, menu-driven Web interface. SEL designed
and built the Ethernet security gateway, available this November, as part of a
research project with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Tennessee Valley
Authority and Sandia National Laboratories, among other partners.
Another element of SEL's smart grid security solutions is
the SEL-3021 Serial Encrypting Transceiver. It protects point-to-point and
multidrop data links from attacks and eavesdropping, with advanced encryption
validated to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2. For
wireless applications, the SEL-3022 Wireless Encrypting Transceiver creates a
cryptographically secure wireless link between a computer and remote IED serial
SEL's security solutions provide an effective means for
reducing electronic vulnerabilities in critical communications systems ranging
from serial to Ethernet and SCADA to engineering access. Securing systems
ranging from water treatment facilities to electric power transmission
infrastructure with SEL cybersecurity solutions ensures continued smart grid

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.
