Pulse control module for time proportional output
Omega Engineering's PCM5 is designed to transmit a signal of up to 20 mA from a process/temperature controller to a time proportional output.
The OMEGA PCM5 Series converter is designed to convert a 4 to 20 mA signal from a process/temperature controller or computer to a time proportional output.
The modules mount directly to the input terminals on a 3 to 32 Vdc input SSR, and supports single phase 50 or 60 Hz operation. Lever clamps are provided on the converter for the 4 to 20 mA input.
The SSR’s power section provides easy connection to the line and load.
Analog Input Signal: 4 to 20 mA minimal; 0 to 30 mA permissible; reverse polarity protected; no abnormal operation below 4 mA Compliance Voltage Requirement: 6.4V
Time Base: ~200 mS @ 50%, ~500 mS towards 0 and 100%
Ambient Temperature: 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F)
Dimensions: 45 L x 51 W x (1.75 x 2.0 x 0.80") 20 mm D

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.
