Universal input signal conditioning
This family of signal conditioners offers more than 100 possible combinations in three models.
The IAMS series of universal DIN-rail-mounted signal conditioners are designed to provide complete isolation and conversion capability to satisfy almost any application. The universal input can accept RTD, TC, Ohm, potentiometer, mA, Vdc and process input signals, allowing the units to be connected to most common sensors. They also feature a detachable LCD display/programming module, providing simple push-button programming without the need for difficult-to-use DIP switches or PC tethering.
The signal conditioners feature more than 100 possible input-to-output combinations and are available in three models. The setpoint model allows dual setpoint control capability through dual Form-A relays. The analog model provides a retransmitted analog signal. A third model provides both an analog output and relay control capability.

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.
