Wago Corporation’s new Interface Adapter provides Jumpflex Signal Conditioners and Relays with a tool-free interface to the Wage-I/O-System or other PLC interfaces. Interface Adapters capture analog/digital signals for eight combined Jumpflex modules — ideal for machines requiring large amounts of input/output signals. Ribbon cable and D-Sub connector models provide 8-channel connectivity; other interface products connect the Interface Adapters to Wago’s 16-Channel Digital I/O modules.

Jumpflex Interface Adapters streamline commissioning and eliminate wiring errors for both field and control levels. To simplify troubleshooting, each Interface Adapter features marking tag holders and a test location at each channel. Integrated indicators for signal and/or power status are also included. Complementary products include DIN-rail mount interface boards and relay modules.

Jumpflex Signal Conditioners and Relays feature an ultra-compact 6mm, DIN-rail mount housing and a flexible jumpering system that reportedly eliminates redundant wiring. All models provide safe isolation of input, output and supply circuits with 2.5 kV test voltage to EN 61140. Signal transmission is attained with an accuracy <0.1% of the full scale value, according to Wago. The Signal Conditioner modules are rated -25 to +70°C for wide variety of industrial 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.
