United Electric ControlsUnited Electric Controls introduces the TX200H, a HART 7 smart pressure transmitter designed for upstream oil and gas applications. The TX200H provides simplified field adjustments while reliably communicating asset management data using the latest HART 7 specification.

A flexible 10:1 turndown on pressure ranges from 0 to 15 psi up to 0 to 25,000 psi allow users to range the transmitter as application requirements change while reducing inventory levels through model reduction. The TX200H real-time diagnostics also reduce maintenance costs by reporting device health status and process performance, alerting users to potential problems to troubleshoot before escalation occurs. 

TX200H is constructed of 316 stainless steel, welded and hermetically sealed to meet enclosure type 4X and IP66 requirements. Its rugged, compact design lends itself to being mounted directly onto the process or panel mounted within a control panel. Standard approvals include cULus for Class I, Div. 1 and 2, Zone 1 and ATEX Ex d and Ex tD hazardous areas. It is CE compliant to PED and EMC directives.   

Integrating the TX200H into most process systems is simple. Since HART communication is superimposed over the 4-20 mA signal, the TX200H can use existing wiring as an upgraded, drop-in replacement for a standard analog 4-20 mA transmitter. A user may easily communicate with the TX200H using a handheld device or a PC equipped with commercially available software.

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.
