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
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.
