Digital inter-mediate frequency offers resolution bandwidths from 5 MHz to 1 Hz. Microsoft Windows XP operating system, internal harddrive, and built-in CD ROM simplify use and allow a wide range of interfaces, including LAN access, USB, RS-232, IEEE 488 (GPIB), and VGA outputs. Centronics parallel ports are provided for printer, mouse, and keyboard con-nectivity. Large, 10.4-in. TFT LCD lets data be seen easily. Common measurement func-tions, including channel power, adjacent channel power, occupied bandwidth, harmonic distortion, and more are built in.
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.
