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.

2012 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.
