Flat-panel, touch screen computer with Intel Atom processor
Advantech's 15-inch TPC-1551H touch-panel computer has an Intel Atom processor, can operate in very low and high temperatures, and is only 58 mm thick.
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
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.
