AutomationDirect universal signal conditioners, in plastic slim-line housings, convert, isolate and transmit scale signals from a wide variety of process sensor and controller I/O.

AutomationDirect now offers universal signal conditioners, in plastic slim-line housings, to convert, isolate and transmit scale signals from a wide variety of process sensor and controller I/O. The DIN-rail mountable models (884114 and 84116) support scalable input signals including mA, V dc, thermocouple with internal cold junction compensation, two to four-wire RTDs, linear resistance and potentiometer signals. Both models feature mA and V dc outputs, while the 84116 model adds two individually programmable relays for alarming and control functions. Isolated universal supply voltage input eliminates the need for separate transformers or power supplies. A menu-structured LCD programming/display module, sold separately, features automatic scrolling text identifying each menu item. The detachable module can store and transfer configuration parameters from one signal conditioner to another, minimizing set up time with multiple unit applications. The module supports seven programming languages and can be password-protected to prevent unauthorized configuration changes. When not used for configuration, the display module can be used to display input signal values, engineering units, output signal, and relay status. The universal signal conditioners are backed by a five-year warranty. www.automationdirect.com/signal-conditioners

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.
