Temperature Sensing IO Module
The SNAP-AIRTD-1K is a two-channel, isolated analog input module for use with platinum resistance temperature detectors (RTDs).
The SNAP-AIRTD-1K is a two-channel, isolated analog input module for use with 1000 ohm platinum resistance temperature detectors (RTDs). With the SNAP-AIRTD-1K, the SNAP I/O modules now includes RTD input modules for use with 10 ohm copper, 100 ohm platinum, and 1,000 ohm platinum RTD probes. The SNAP-AIRTD-1K module provides two channels of analog temperature input, with a nominal input temperature range of -200 to +850 C and an input range of 0-4,000 ohms. The module has an average resolution of 0.042 C (0.16 ohms). Used primarily with RTD probes to provide temperature inputs, the SNAP-AIRTD-1K module can also be used for making high-resolution resistance measurements. The module is guaranteed for life, is transformer isolated, and optically isolated from the equipment and devices it connects to, as well as from other modules on a shared I/O rack.

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.
