Courtesy: B&R AutomationB&R Automation's Panel PC 900 with multi-touch functionality features Intel Core i7 technology as well as combining new display sizes with multi-touch operation. The Panel PC 900 takes full advantage of the state-of-the-art projected capacitive touch screen also used in the Automation Panel widescreen display series. With an edge-to-edge, anti-glare glass surface and high-resolution monitors, maximum functionality and an advanced design have been integrated into a single operator panel. Displays ranging from 15.6” to 24 in.” with Full HD resolution ensure that every possible requirement is covered. 

These multi-touch displays allow user interactions such as zooming with two fingers or quickly paging forward with swipe gestures. In addition, two-hand gestures for critical or potentially dangerous operations provide an effective way of preventing unintentional operator errors.

Systems in the Panel PC 900 series are available as widescreen displays in addition to the traditional 4:3 format. Equipped with an analog resistive touch screen and display sizes ranging from 12.1” to 19 in.”, Panel PC 900 single-touch systems provide full compatibility with the previous device generation with respect to screen resolution and dimensions. 

Many Panel PC 900 variants can be operated without fans. Used together with SSD drives and/or CFast cards, these systems completely eliminate rotating components, making maintenance work such as regularly replacing the air filter a thing of the past.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
