A headline in the News section, CE , April'99, p. 49, and in U.S. News Perspective, CEI , April'99, p. 28, should have named the purchaser of Aeroquip-Vickers as Eaton Corp. (Cleveland, O.), parent of Cutler-Hammer. A second news item on p. 50 should have stated that David Adams was appointed as Eaton's Hydraulics and Aerospace Integration vp.
In the "PCs Are Gaining Control" article in CE , Feb.'99, p. 66, and CEI , Mar.'99, p. 51, a table of PC-based control vendors should have listed Foxboro software as "I/A Series" and strategy as "Microsoft Windows NT." FoxDMM is computerized maintenance management software integrating Maximo from PSDI with Foxboro's I/A Series. While Foxboro uses Java in a wide variety of applications, Java does not currently represent a core Foxboro strategy for PC-based control.
