Sensor simulator for testing
This sensor simulator installs in place of an ICP sensor and accepts test signals from a voltage function generator.
The model 401B04 ICP sensor simulator installs in place of an ICP sensor and accepts test signals from a voltage function generator. The simulator allows test engineers to ensure the entire measuring chain - consisting of cable, ICP or IEPE signal conditioning and data acquisition system - is set up properly and ready to take measurements. The unit also serves to verify signal conditioning settings, cable integrity and tune long lines for optimum system performance and is powered by any ICP or IEPE sensor signal conditioner.

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.
