Rotary inductive sensor has 360-degree angular measurement for outdoor applications
Turck’s inductive analog sensors provide 360-degree angular measurement by using resistance inductive capacitance measuring technology.
Turck produces rotary inductive sensors, specifically, a line of inductive analog sensors that provide 360-degree angular measurement. The rotary inductive sensors utilize resistance inductive capacitance (RLC) measuring technology, rather than a traditional magnetic positioning element—delivering complete immunity to EMC interference.
Turck rotary inductive sensors are IP67 rated, with a temperature range of -40 to 70 °C, making the devices perfect for measuring the angle of solar panels, wind turbine blade position, crane position, and other outdoor applications. The sensor and its positioning element are designed as separate pieces, allowing the positioning element to be mounted in a variety of unique ways—including directly onto a rotating shaft—without experiencing the wear common to these types of sensors.

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.
