The iTrans DS2 docking station is designed to automate calibration, record-keeping and instrument diagnostics for fixed-point gas monitors. Previously, these functions had to be manually performed by a field technician carrying cylinders of gas to each sensor in a facility. The station can perform these tasks automatically or on demand. Gas monitors with software version 7.5 or higher are compatible with the docking station, as well as the iNet Instrument Network.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
