Cabling system simplifies wiring for IO modules
The Simatic Top connect cabling system from Siemens wires IO modules to reduce time consuming terminal block connections with reliable sensor and actuator wiring.
The Simatic Top connect cabling system from Siemens is designed to quickly and reliably wires Simatic S7-1500 input/output modules, eliminating costly and time consuming terminal block connections.
The system is available in a modular design delivering fast and well organized field sensor and actuator wiring. The modular system includes plug-in front connector modules that easily attach to Simatic S7-1500 I/O modules and preassembled connecting cables.
A flexible model is also available for simple wiring inside the control cabinet. LED signaling and signal conditioning from 230 V AC to 24 V DC options are available.
With a cross-section of 0.5 square mm, individual wires are also suitable for higher currents and are available in different lengths and versions: as H05V-K single wires (PVC insulation), H05Z-K (halogen-free insulation) both versions for applications not requiring UL or with UL/CSA certified single wires.
Users can quickly select and order the required version with the TIA selection tool on the Siemens website. The tool helps select the correct components in the modular and flexible models for selected I/O modules.

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.
