Analog output encoders
Hollow- and solid-shaft high resolution analog output encoders provide 12-bit resolution with a choice of analog output.
The ENA361M hollow-shaft and ESA361M solid-shaft series high resolution analog output encoders provide 12-bit resolution with a choice of analog output. Designed for high reliability and high precision industrial automation and process control applications, the units have greater than 500-gram shock and greater than 30-gram vibration resistances. The series has a temperature range of -40 to 85 C and the standard units are IP67 sealed. The single-turn encoders offer a choice of 4-20 mA or 0-10 V outputs, and feature measuring range options of 45, 90, 180 or 360 degrees.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
