USB cable with bulkhead connector
L-com's USB 3.0 cable assemblies have added a type A female bulkhead.
L-com, Inc. has added USB 3.0 cable assemblies with a type A female bulkhead connector on one end. These assemblies are designed to be easily installed on panels or chassis and provide access to hard-to-reach or secured USB 3.0 ports.
The USB 3.0 cable assemblies use a multi-layered PCB in the bulkhead that maintains USB 3.0 speed and performance. The “ECF504” style bulkhead mounts to virtually any panel thickness via an electrically grounded flange. They are a USB 3.0 version of the original USB 2.0 cable assemblies that L-com has carried for years. USB 3.0 is up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, with speeds reaching 4.8 Gbps.

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.
