The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech offers a 15-in. touch panel computer with Intel Atom processor designed to operate in very low and very high temperatures.

The Energy Star compliant TPC-1551H has been designed to work in temperatures as low as -20 C (-4 F) and as high as 60 C (140 F), said to be ideal for machine and factory automation and power and energy industries. The unit is very thin at 58 mm (2.29-in.) to allow installation in areas that will not allow for thicker panels.

Added protection against dust is provided by a new gasket between the touch screen and the metal bezel and protection against electrical shorts, surges and ground loops is provided by 2 KV isolation protection on the serial ports. There is also a HDD bracket kit that can be purchased separately to allow the installation of any standard hard drive unit.

Since the TPC-1551H uses standard PC architecture it can support Microsoft Windows 7, Windows XP embedded, WinCE and Linux, making it suitable for integrating with existing machinery and systems.

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.
