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
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.
