Advanced signal analysis
Siemens’ ASAtechnology is a software-based solution that compares sensor signal data to sophisticated algorithms to differentiate between a fire emergency and harmless smoke, steam, or dust.
Siemens’ ASAtechnology is a software-based solution that, in real time, dynamically compares sensor signal data to sophisticated algorithms to accurately and reliably differentiate between a fire emergency and harmless smoke, steam, or dust. Siemens’ multi-criteria fire detectors integrate five sensors (including two optical for forward/ backward scattering, two thermal, and one CO, depending on model) in a single detector. Through ASAtechnology, Siemens fire detectors quickly process the sensor array’s signals to determine alarm or monitoring status to provide for the earliest detection of smoke, heat, and CO in any environment. They also feature 26 selectable detection profiles and nine field-selectable temperature settings.

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.
