Aaxeon Technologies announces the release of its newest IP67 rated 802.11b/g high-powered outdoor access point and bridge. The new Aaxeon APX-3000 Outdoor AP/Bridge add additional features to what is usually found on a standard access point. The APX-3000 features a wireless distributed system (WDS) function that let's the unit act as a wireless LAN access point and repeater at the same time. Users can use this function to develop large wireless networks in large areas, such as large manufacturing sites or plants, airports, hotels, schools, etc. Using WDS enables bridging networks between multiple areas where it is impossible to deploy network cable connections. The APX-3000 also has station mode, which lets network devices that only has wired Ethernet support access wireless LAN without changing any of the device's original configurations. In addition, with its 1 Watt radio, the APX-3000 can be used to bridge distances much greater than the typical access point with only a 100 mwatt radio.

The metal enclosure is also IP67 rated to ensure the unit will be protected from the elements, such as rain, dust, and other environmental conditions to ensure the unit is reliable for everyday usage, the company says.

The new APX-3000 is also very simple to configure via web browser.

Key features include:
• Supports WPA / WPA2 security enhanced function;
• Supports WDS(Wireless Distributed System) bridge mode;
• Provides station mode to act as a wireless LAN client station;
• Supports roaming link integrity;
• Supports authentication for wireless connectivity based on ESSID;
• Provides 64/128 bit key length WEP data encryption;
• Provides MAC access control, DHCP server;
• Supports Web-based configuration;

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
