Multi-touch monitor line expands
Kontron's OmniView multi-touch monitors aim to reflect a durable industrial design.
The new Kontron monitors offer projective-capacitive multi-touch functionality in a 16:9 wide-screen design with joint-free glass surfaces. The new industrial monitors featuring IP65 front protection are also interoperable with any industrial PC.
Via the long-distance interface for DVI-D and USB, the OmniView industrial monitors can be installed at a distance of up to 30 meters, or 100 feet, from the host, which allows for flexible GUI installations on machinery and the shop floor. With its high luminance of up to 300cd and matt glass front, the monitors offer readability in difficult lighting conditions.
Depending on the monitor chassis, mounting options for the new industrial monitors in 21.5, 18.5, and 15.6 formats are either panel mount (installation) or Vesa mount (stand-alone). The monitors also boast a high level of connectivity. With USB for touchscreen control as well as DisplayPort, DVI-I and VGA connections, the monitors can not only be hooked up to the latest systems but also to legacy products.

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.
