Pressure transmitter for difficult environments
Rugged design from Wika withstands vibration, shock, and wide temperature variations.
The Wika Tronic A-10 pressure transmitter family is precision engineered and manufactured to fit many industrial and OEM pressure measurement applications. The company says its rugged design provides resistance to vibration, shock, wide temperature variations, RFI, and other extreme environmental conditions that are typical of industrial applications. All-welded stainless steel construction eliminates the need for internal seals.
The A-10 is suited for applications where negative pressures may occur, such as when a system is drained or possibly during a process upset. Such conditions can damage some pressure sensors. Typical applications include, filter monitoring, pump control, vacuum lift technology, and gas analysis.
• Pressure ranges from 0-15 psi up to 0-10,000 psi;
• Non-linearity <+0.5% BFSL standard, <+0.25% available;
• Signal outputs 4-20 mA, 0-10 V, and 0-5 V;
• Electrical connection DIN 175301-803 A and C, M12x1, 6 ft. cable; and

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.
