Courtesy: Precision DigitalPrecision Digital's ProVu PD6080 Series Super Snoopers of 1/8 DIN digital panel meters and the ProtEX-MAX PD8-6080 Series of explosion-proof scanners. The Super Snooper scanners can be set up as Modbus RTU Masters, Slaves, or Snoopers, monitoring multiple Modbus devices for up to 16 process variables, including level, interface level, density, and temperature. The meters also provide two independently programmed analog inputs and an array of math functions for sum, difference, average, and ratio calculations.

The ProVu PD6080 Series Super Snoopers are NEMA 4X 1/8 DIN panel indicators
with bright, easy to read digits. The PD6080 and PD6081 include dual analog
inputs and an RS-485 serial communications module, allowing integration of
existing 4-20 mA transmitters and Modbus devices on the same display. The
PD6088 and PD6089 include on-board RS-485 serial communications and no
analog inputs. The PD6081 and PD6089 have a unique feet and inches display,
ideal for level applications.

The scanners are housed in explosion-proof enclosures for use in hazardous areas. SafeTouch, through-glass buttons provide accessibility to the front buttons without removing the enclosure cover. The entire product carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEX approvals for use in hazardous area applications.

The Super Snooper scanners can be easily integrated into an existing Modbus network. Remote displays can be added without making changes to other Modbus devices. In Master mode, the Super Snoopers are Modbus masters, polling slave devices for the process variables. In Snooper mode, the devices display any process variable being polled on the bus. All the process variables are clearly labeled with a custom tag and unit.

Each scanner is provided with RS-485 Modbus RTU serial communications standard. Options include up to four relays, a 4-20 mA analog output, and dual 24 VDC power supplies. Expansion modules for the 1/8 DIN models add an additional four relays, two 4-20 mA outputs, and eight digital I/O.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
