Temperature/process controller panel
Omega introduces CNI-CB120SB pre-configured panel family, saves time over sourcing individual components.
Omega introduces its new series CNI-CB120SB, a self-contained temperature control panel that provides a complete control system design, eliminating the need to select, collect, and assemble separate components. The pre-configured panels are ready to install, requiring only supply power, load, and sensor hook-up. They are equipped with an Omega iSeries microprocessor-based controller with on/off, PID, and ramp/soak capabilities along with a tri-color display. These control panels are supplied with a thermocouple input jack and M12 female connection for RTD or process inputs. Their compact packaging makes them portable or easy to mount, even in limited spaces. Ideal for chemical and food industries where careful temperature and process control is necessary.

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.
