Highland Technology has introduced the V220, a VME module intended for use in 4-20 mA industrial control loop applications.
The V220 features 12 fully isolated channels, each capable of either sourcing or measuring voltage and current, simulating and measuring both controllers and transducers, and simulating open/short faults.
It is also ideal for simulating complex industrial processes to control systems under development and certification, according to Highland Technology.

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.
