Flowmeter for water and wastewater applications
Endress+Hauser introduces Promag L 400 with built-in Ethernet port and web server technology.
Endress+Hauser has introduced the Proline Promag L 400 electromagnetic flowmeter for water and wastewater applications. It has an Ethernet port and built-in web server for easy data access and configuration via a web browser. The sensor has drinking water approvals and corrosion protection that allows it to be installed underwater, underground, and in saline environments. Sensors are available in nominal diameters from 2 to 90 in.
With the integrated web server, the transmitter can be accessed via a standard web browser. This allows engineers and maintenance technicians to configure all device functions without any special software, to upload and download configuration date for backup or copying to identical meters, and to access device, diagnostic, and process information.
The Promag L 400 has KTW/W270, ACS, NSF 61, and WRAS BS 6920 drinking water approvals, as well as custody transfer approvals to MI-001 and OIML R49 water meter standards. Accuracy is 0.2% of range, with factory testing on accredited and traceable calibration rigs.
An on-board HistoROM system provides data storage of all sensor, transmitter, and totalizer data, with no data loss if power is removed. The HistoROM system provides a built-in data logger, has an event logbook and parameter backup, and can be restored using .xml files through the web server. Data can also be accessed via the local graphic display. This capability also includes guided menus, setup wizards, 16 language options, help displays, and built-in simulation software.

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.
