Industrial panel PC receives upgrade
Advantech's IPPC-9150G has an Intel Atom power processor and is NEMA4/IP65 certified
Advantech has upgraded the processing power of the IPPC-9150G to an Intel Atom N450 low energy power processor from an Intel Pentium 4 processor. The processor has the advantage of not only being faster, but also more compatible with applications.
Designed for the rigors of harsh industrial environments, the IPPC-9150G, with its toughened glass and aluminum bezel, is NEMA4/IP65 certified so it can be cleaned without fear of damage from chemical cleaners, oil and water. For further durability the IPPC-9150G also includes a stainless steel back panel.
The IPPC-9150G uses a 15” XGA LED backlit LCD and supports embedded software APIs and utilities which speeds up the development of applications and enhances computer security as well as power efficiency.

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.
