Analog IO modules added to PLC line
AutomationDirect has added discrete and analog I/O modules to the Click PLC line as well as four-channel RTD and thermocouple modules.
AutomationDirect has added discrete and analog I/O modules to the Click PLC line. The 24 V dc combination discrete modules include eight-point dc input/eight-point dc sinking or sourcing output models and a four-point dc input/four-point relay output model.
The 24 V dc four-channel analog input modules with 13-bit resolution include 0-20 mA current input and 0-10 V voltage input versions; 12-bit resolution four-channel output modules in 4-20 mA current and 0-10 V voltage versions. Also added is a four-channel input/two-channel output module in current and voltage versions. This module features 13-bit resolution inputs and 12-bit resolution outputs.
Four-channel RTD and thermocouple modules with 16-bit resolution have also been added. The RTD input module accepts Pt100, Pt1000, jPT100, Cu10, Cu25, and Ni120 elements; resistive ranges are also supported. The thermocouple input module supports nine thermocouple types as well as voltage ranges.

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.
