Form factor computing boards designed to deliver greater efficiency
Small computing boards designed for harsh environments are also said to optimize connectivity and device intelligence.
Brockton, MA – Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions , a provider of electronic packaging, also offers a range of electronics enclosures that protect sensitive electronics, such as small form-factor computing boards, to be deployed in harsh environments. These computing boards are said to allow
Gavazzi XP-SR series of rugged PCI expansion chasses.
customers to upgrade current systems and bring increased efficiency, connectivity and intelligences to a range of applications, including: wire line and wireless; SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition); control panels; RTU (remote terminal unit); and IED (intelligent electronic devices).
The reduced thermal, power, and size advances that are being made in small factor boards, coupled with Carlo Gavazzi’s system enclosures that protect these sensitive electronics from the elements, are allowing engineers to design equipment that is more portable and better suited for remote "point of process" applications.

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.
