Fuji Electric Corp. of America calls its Monitouch V815iXD a dedicated human-machine interface (HMI) that incorporates the best features of a high end HMI with a protocol converter. It can communicate with eight separate protocols simultaneously and pass data between them easily. The V8 Series HMI also has an FTP server, SQL connectivity, and supports remote desktop and data logging to a CF card or USB memory device. A Fuji tool called Component Parts can assist users in creating multifunctional screens instantly. The tool contains all necessary settings for operation. To deploy a screen on additional displays, simply copy and paste. Fuji also offers free updates to its Component Parts tool, allowing users to keep HMI applications on the cutting edge. It has a faster processor, brighter screen, and more memory than previous generations. It can be used as a central communications hub with connectivity to PLCs, motion controllers, temperature controllers, drives, barcode readers, and more. As with all of the Monitouch HMIs, V815iXD is forward compatible, allowing user to import applications from any HMI to the newest generation.

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.
