N connector for plenum cable
RF industries has designed a new female connector to improve connections for low-loss building systems.
Where wireless applications require an easily routed, low loss RF cable for in-building systems, Times Microwave’s LMR-400-LLPL has reportedly become a popular choice. This cable is an indoor highly fire retarded cable intended specifically for runs within return air handling plenums (e.g. dropped ceilings, raised floors).
To meet the connection needs of this plenum cable RF Connectors has apparently designed the RFN-1028-I2 N female connector with crimp attachment to offer the perfect fit and performance. The connector body is made of machined brass with nickel plating. All dielectrics are made of Dupont Teflon with gold plated contacts.
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.
