SeaPAC R9-8.4 from Sealevel Systems combines a powerful RISC-based human-machine interface (HMI) with a bright 8.4-in. TFT LCD to create a wide-temperature, ruggedized, flat panel computer perfect for a variety of control and HMI applications. Featuring an industrial, LED backlight that gives the panel extended life over CCFT-backlit panels, the system offers a -30 °C to +70 °C operating temperature range.

 

Powered by a 200 MIPS ARM9 micro, the system is available with up to 256MB RAM and 256MB Flash memory for maximum performance in embedded systems. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, CAN, and digital interface. For intuitive operator interface, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 includes a resistive touchscreen.

 

Local or remote I/O expansion is available using Sealevel SeaI/O modules. Choose from a variety of I/O configurations including optically isolated inputs, reed and form C relay outputs, TTL interfaces, A/D, and D/A. The unit connects to SeaI/O modules via the system’s expansion port and communicates using RS-485 Modbus RTU.

 

To provide the fastest time to market, the Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. Additionally, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O Framework, which offers a high-level object-oriented Microsoft .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface. This interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for the specific needs of analog and digital I/O, such as gain control and debouncing.

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.
