Bluetooth RF transceiver module
Wago Corp.'s 750-644 Bluetooth RF-Transceiver module provides fast, bidirectional, wireless communication between I/O nodes. Within 10 ms, the 750-644 exchanges data up to 1,000 m (line-of-sight) or 100 m (within buildings), providing control engineers with a cost-effective wireless solution. This is a September Control Engineering North American edition Product Exclusive.
Wago Corp.'s 750-644 Bluetooth RF-Transceiver module provides fast, bidirectional, wireless communication between I/O nodes. Within 10 ms, the 750-644 exchanges data up to 1,000 m (line-of-sight) or 100 m (within buildings), providing control engineers with a cost-effective wireless solution. It is ideal for a wide range of applications such as robot controls, high bay warehouses, and renewable and traditional energy applications such as oil fields. One 750-644 master can communicate with up to seven slaves on a Personal Area Network (PAN), also known as a piconet, via Bluetooth 2.0+EDR radio technology. Slave-to-slave data transmission is possible indirectly through the master. The module offers robust communications with frequency hopping procedures and adaptive transmitting power technologies, which allows the piconet to co-exist with other radio technologies found in industrial applications. The data exchange can be encrypted, maximizing security.
This is the newest addition to the fieldbus-independent Wago-I/O-System that supports prevalent fieldbus technologies: EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Profibus, DeviceNet, and CANopen. The Bluetooth module works with all standard fieldbus couplers/controllers found in the Wago-I/O-System, more than 300 analog, digital and specialty modules. Configuration of the 750-644 is easy with Wago-I/O-Check 3 software. Wago-I/O-Pro programming software provides function blocks that make the module's use easier. The module carries eight on-unit LEDs for on-site diagnostics of interference, signal quality and timeouts. The 750-644 also features an SMA socket for Wago's 758-912 antenna, data contact, and power jumper contacts. It is available for immediate delivery.

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.
