Handheld field communicator
The 475 Field Communicator Silver Edition by Emerson Process Management uses software that allows the communication to use HART and Foundation Fieldbus digital valve controllers.
Emerson Process Management's 475 Field Communication Silver Edition represents 25 years of industry expertise in handheld communicator technology. The Silver Edition uses version 3.8 software, which enables the Field Communicator to use both both HART and Foundation Fieldbus digital valve controllers with its ValveLink Mobile application. With ValveLink Mobile, users can set up and calibrate valves and run diagnostics such as Stroke Valve, Step Response, and Valve Signature on the entire valve assembly in the field.
The 475 Field Communicator enables configuration, calibration, and troubleshooting of more than 1500 HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices. It remains the only intrinsically safe handheld communicator to support both HART and Foundation Fieldbus devices from all suppliers – enabling technicians to use a single universal tool to simplify work and minimize equipment required.

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.
