Brad SST PB3 Remote Module
The Brad SST PB3 Remote Module is a “linking device” with on-board PROFIBUS and Ethernet communication ports that provides a fast and easy solution for adding PROFIBUS Master and Slave connectivity. Its remote design allows the PB3 module to be installed closer to the field device, reducing more expensive PROFIBUS cabling costs that occur when the controller and field device are located some distance from one another. The PB3 remote module is designed to execute high-speed PROFIBUS-DP data exchange with a maximum of 2kbyte Input + 2kbyte Output PROFIBUS process data.

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.
