Flexible communication, tight security for IP-based wireless networks
Trio ER45e, an Ethernet licensed radio by Control Microsystems, combines Ethernet and serial ports to suit a broad range of remote devices and RTUs.
Control Microsystems has released the Trio ER45e data radio, the latest model in the Ethernet E-Series family of licensed radios. The ER45e is designed to increase IP communication network reliability and coverage while reducing the cost of deployment and ongoing management.
The Trio ER45e radio provides both Ethernet and serial connectivity for the most complex and demanding requirements in Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint (Multiple Address Radio) SCADA and telemetry applications in licensed 450 MHz band.
Features such as ChannelShare, data compression, low latency and over-the-air firmware upgrades make the Trio ER45e an optimal licensed Ethernet radio to seamlessly integrate into existing E-Series or third party systems. Customers can expect a unified IP infrastructure and improved remote asset management.
“The demand for Ethernet based long range wireless networks is growing as customers expect improved network reliability and a common connectivity interface,” says Luke Enriquez, Trio Product Manager. “The ER45e features a flexible embedded terminal server which provides a smooth transition from serial based infrastructure to IP/Ethernet.”
The Trio ER45e is also complemented by the full duplex EB45e Base/Repeater and the 1+1 redundant EH45e Hot Standby options.

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.
