Avio F120 fiber-optic KVM designers
The Avio F120 is the first in a new line of fiber-optic KVM designers designed for graphics-intensive and visualization applications. The Avio F120 transmitter and receiver pair extends two single-link DVI video, keyboard, mouse, audio, and USB HID devices from the host system by up to 2000 m (6562 ft) using a single duplex LC-LC fiber-optic cable. The uncompressed fiber-optic transmission maintains graphics performance and full frame-rate HD video playback with no latency at the remote station, while the computer remains safely secured in a climate-controlled machine room for enhanced security and easier IT maintenance.

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.
