Compact, high-density D-Sub interface modules for motion control
Wago Corp. Custom Products Division has engineered a new line of 26-pin D-sub interface modules for motion control applications.
Wago Corp. Custom Products Division has engineered a new line of 26-pin D-sub interface modules (product number 51013375) for motion control applications. The high-density, male interface modules have been paired with the company’s 737-109 Triple-Deck Terminal Strips to provide efficient control-level connections for electromechanical devices. The interface modules offer straightforward integration with 1-to-1 pin contact for proper signal transmission and distribution. Use of 737-109 Triple-Deck Terminal Strips enabled a PCB that is approximately 1/3 the width of traditional blocks. The triple-stacked terminal configuration makes determining pin-to-terminal correspondence simple. The DIN-rail mountable interface modules provide convenient wiring for conductors AWG 28-12. Using CAGE CLAMP Spring Pressure Connection Technology helps modules provide fast, maintenance-free wiring along with an operating temperature range of -25 °C to 55 °C.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
