The line includes 12versions of machine-mount I/O blocks and an IP67 unmanaged switch. These blockshave a low initial cost-per-point and are designed to save money over the lifeof the system with maximum uptime and easy maintenance.
Fast and easy IP addressing can be accomplished using BOOTP/
DHCP through an IP67 IP address plug, via a pushbutton display (100 series
only) or Web pages. Backlit for easy reading, the addressable display shows all
the octets of the IP address, subnet mask and gateway address while pushbuttons
allow for easy adjustment of any octet of the IP address, subnet mask and
gateway address. Detachable for rapid module replacement, the IP address plug
stores the module's addressing information in a convenient quick-disconnect
Certified by ODVA to ensure interoperability, these I/O
blocks operate up to 100 Mbit/s speeds. The Ethernet cord set attachment point
uses a rugged metal threaded M12 D-coded port.

2012 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.
