POY Finalist: Motor management
Finalist in Electric Motors and Drives in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Simocode Pro Safety is designed to become an integrated part of a plant’s motor management system and improve worker safety. IEC 61508/62061 and ISO 13849-1 standards for functional safety up to SIL 3 or PL e are met with this product.
Additional outputs or peripheral devices can be omitted. Two different expansion modules are available, and they can be easily connected to the basic Simocode pro V device. The digital module DM-F PROFIsafe is used with a safe signal where the switch-off is generated in a fail-safe controller, and is transmitted to the motor management system via PROFIBUS/PROFIsafe.

2012 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.
