The Model 657-1 relative humidity and temperature transmitter includes two 2-wire circuits to simultaneously produce separate 4-20 mA output signals for relative humidity from 0-100% and temperature from 32 to 212F. Accuracy for humidity is ±2% from 10-90% and for temperature it is ±1F over the full range. The control operates both channels from a single 10-35V dc power supply wired into the relative-humidity current loop. The probe included with the transmitter features an integrated, polymer film, and a relative-humidity sensor plus a separate thin-film platinum sensor for temperature measurement.

Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
