Wireless I/O module pair
This pair of wireless I/O modules requires no software or PC connection and can be driven by either dc or ac signal sources.
Model WWP-IIRO-8 is a pair of intelligent 16-channel digital I/O units that communicate directly with each other. Each unit contains 8 Form C (SPDT) electromechanical relays and 8 optically isolated digital inputs. When an isolated input is toggled on one of the units, it will cause the corresponding relay to switch on the other unit. No software or PC connection is required as this solution is completely self-contained and operates autonomously. The units are packaged in small, rugged, NEMA4 enclosures, and offer a low-cost alternative to costly signal wire installations. They can operate at distances up to 7 miles line-of-sight via a 900 MHz wireless connection (up to 20 miles with optional high-gain antenna). The eight isolated inputs can be driven by either dc sources of 3-31 V (or higher by special order), or ac sources at frequencies of 40 Hz to 10 kHz and are not polarity sensitive.

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.
