PLC driver software adds functionality for building HMIs
CimQuest Ingear's Net.Logix v5.0 software allows programmers to read and write large blocks of data at one time and comes in four versions for different programming needs.
CimQuest Ingear's Net.Logix v5.0 software allows programmers to upload the tag list stored in CPU memory then browse for names of data items. In addition, Net.Logix v5.0 now enables programmers to retrieve controller properties such as Program Name, CPU Model, Firmware Revision and Serial Number. The feature lets programmers easily see valuable statistical data from the Allen-Bradley controller (from Rockwell Automation) they are communicating with.
With Net.Logix v5.0, programmers can read and write large blocks of data at one time, instead of having to break large data blocks into smaller blocks through code. This capability speeds programming time significantly.
Net.Logix v5.0 comes in four versions: Developer Edition, Compact Framework, Developer Team Edition and Single Machine Edition. Developer Edition is for designing, creating, and deploying Microsoft Windows programs, system services and console applications. Compact Framework is for creating programs for devices such as Allen-Bradley PanelView from Rockwell Automation, handheld scanners, HMI Panels, PDAs and other devices. Developer Team Edition is for developing automation projects in a Visual Studio.NET team environment. Single Machine Edition is for designing, testing, debugging and running Microsoft Windows programs, system services and console applications on one machine.

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.
