AutomationDirect’s line of capacitive proximity sensors now includes 12 mm metal round bodied DC models with shielded and unshielded mounting options, PNP, normally-open outputs, potentiometer adjustment and M12 quick disconnect. Unshielded 18mm dc plastic bodied models with selectable normally-open/normally-closed outputs feature logic auto detection. Additional unshielded 30 mm models feature ac and dc versions with plastic housings and have programmable normally-open or normally-closed outputs. Rectangular plastic dc sensors, ideal for sight glass applications, feature selectable normally-open or normally-closed outputs and are fitted with a two-meter three-wire axial cable.
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.
