Jetter JetControl 940MC controller
Jetter has expanded its highest-level of the JetWeb controller series with its new JetControl 940MC. The JetControl 940MC has been developed for motion system applications requiring quick cycles and high dynamics, such as path control and interpolation applications, as well as technological functions like screw-capping, electronic gearing, winding function, etc.

Compared to available controllers in the JetControl series, the JetControl 940MC is expandable with even more peripheral and axis modules. It is programmed via the high-level language JetSym STX, which is able to multitask, whch is said to be a main difference between typical PLC controllers and the JetControl 940MC.

Various interfaces (Ethernet, CAN, serial, USB) are available, and standard Ethernet TCP/IP is applied as communication network so services such as HTTP, FTP, and e-mailing can be applied. JetWeb reportedly integrates drive and communications technology seamlessly into the control system, allowing technology functions and path control to be just as conveniently programmed as conventional control functions.

In addition, JetMan, Jetter AG's "mascot," introduces the JetSym STX programming language in poster format. In a series of light-hearted comic-book scenarios, JetMan illustrates the various sets of commands for data management, motion commands, loops, object orientation, and many other topics. Software commands are likened to everyday situations; for example, the If, Then, Else commands are depicted as rail switches with JetMan acting as the switchman. The command groups are shown together on an A2 poster. Order your free copy via e-mail from


Jetter AG Headquarters are in Ludwigsburg, Germany, north of Stuttgart. Jetter USA Inc. is located in Clearwater, FL. The Mobile Automation division has been developing and manufacturing HMIs and control systems for mobile applications such as agricultural machinery, municipal vehicles, railway vehicles and fire engines for many years.

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.
