PCIe serial adapter card
Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories's new SEL-3390S8 PCIe serial adapter card allows users to expand the number and type of communications interfaces for industrial computers.
Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. announced 2 new PCI Express (PCIe) cards that allow a user to expand the number and type of communications interfaces for industrial computers. The industrial-rated PCIe cards can be used with any computer that supports standard half-length PCIe cards, including the recently introduced SEL-3355 Computer, which is designed for dependable operation in harsh environments. The cards exceed IEEE 1613, IEEE C37.90, IEC 60255, and IEC 61850-3 standards. The SEL-3390S8 PCIe Serial Adapter Card is configurable for EIA-232, -422, and -485 serial communications and provides signaling up to 921 Kbps. Each of its six ports can provide +5 Vdc and demodulated IRIG-B signals for powering and synchronizing time to serially connected devices. The SEL-3390S8 operates reliably from -40° to +85°C (-40° to +185°F).The SEL-3390E4 Four-Port Gigabit Ethernet Card provides independent ports capable of 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps connection speeds. The Ethernet port connections can be configured for copper, fiber, or both.

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.
