Sound and vibration data acquisition module
Data Translation announces its new DE9839 four-channel USB-powered module.
Data Translation, Inc., has announced release of its DT9839 low-cost USB-powered module for sound and vibration measurements. The unit features a four-channel, 16-bit delta-sigma analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a nominal input range of ±2.5 V, and sampling rates up to 52.7 kHz per channel. Applications that require accelerometer, vibration, noise, or sonar measurements often use IEPE sensors. IEPE conditioning is built-in to the analog circuitry of the DT9839, providing an excitation current source and ac or dc coupling.
QuickDAQ 2013, the ready-to-measure application software package, is included with the DT9839 and allows you to acquire, analyze, and display data. VIBpoint Framework is available as a 14-day trial and adds larger range of processing features, including single- and two-channel FFT operations and dynamic performance statistics. Additionally, all Data Translation devices include comprehensive driver and software support, and interface tools for National Instrument’s LabVIEW and MathWorks MATLAB programmers.

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.
