Opto 22, developer and manufacturer of the programmable automation controllers, I/O, and accessories, has released the Snap-AIRTD-10, a two-channel analog input module used to monitor temperature via connection to copper resistance temperature detectors (RTDs.)

The Snap-AIRTD-10 provides two channels of analog temperature input from 10-ohm copper RTDs, which makes it well-suited for deployment in older installations. The module has an input range of -180 °C to +260 °C (-292 °F to +500 °F) and can also be used for 0-25 ohms resistance measurements. With its wide input temperature range, high over range limits for RTD input, and small footprint, the module will prove most useful in water treatment, refrigeration, thermoforming, curing, autoclaving, refining, PID loop control, welding, and other temperature monitoring applications that require high resolution measurements with minimal drift. Development of the 10-ohm Snap-AIRTD-10 nicely complements the input module, which accepts 100-ohm platinum RTD inputs. The addition of the Snap-AIRTD-10 also expands Opto 22's line of multi-channel analog input modules for interfacing to RTDs, thermocouples, ICTDs, thermistors, and infrared sensors for remote monitoring and data acquisition. www.opto22.com

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.
