Expanded signal-conditioning module family
These two signal conditioning modules can convert up to 400 Vac or 5 Aac signals to 0-5 Vdc signals for data acquisition cards to measure while reducing the harmful effects of ground loops, field noise and electrical interference.
The ADAM-3112 is an isolated ac voltage to dc voltage module while the ADAM-3114 is an isolated ac current to dc voltage module. These two signal conditioning modules can convert up to 400 Vac or 5 Aac signals to 0-5 Vdc signals for data acquisition cards to measure while reducing the harmful effects of ground loops, field noise and electrical interference. Both modules provide 1,000 Vdc isolation between output and power; 2,500 VRMS isolation between input and output; and between input and power. The ADAM-3112 provides three input modes: 0-120 VRMS, 0-250 VRMS and 0-400 VRMS in one single signal conditioning module, which eliminates the need for three individual modules for three different voltage-level applications. The modules are suitable for DIN-rail mounting, designed for easy wiring and can be connected through screw terminals.

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.
