Wi-fi transmitters for harsh, rugged environments
The wSeries Wi-Fi sensors by Newport are designed for demanding industrial applications and harsh outdoor environments. They are powered by batteries or an AC power cable.
Newport's wSeries Wi-Fi transmitters communicate on a standard Wi-Fi network, which is an ideal and economical solution for facilities with an existing Wi-Fi network as well as new installations.
Newport offers Wi-Fi transmitters for analog voltage and current (0-10 V, 4-20 mA), temperature from digital sensors and dual thermocouples, humidity, and barometric pressure.
The Wi-Fi transmitters are powered by batteries or ac. The battery version comes with two alkaline C-Cell batteries that can last for two years depending on the frequency of readings. The ac version comes with a universal ac adapter that operates on any voltage worldwide (110 to 240 V ac) and also includes an alkaline AA backup battery.
The wSeries Wi-Fi sensors are designed for demanding industrial applications and harsh outdoor environments. The electronics are protected in a rugged weatherproof, polycarbonate NEMA4/IP65 rated housing.

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.
