Courtesy: WAGO CorporationTwo eight-channel, configurable Digital Input/Output (DIO) Modules have joined Wago Corporation's IP67 Speedway 767 I/O-System. Configurable channel-by-channel, the 767-5801 & 767-5802 modules (24 V dc, 0.5 A) run in direct input (DI), direct output (DO) or mixed DIO modes. This versatility, and a segment-leading -25 C to +60 C operating temperature range, enables users to methodically tailor Speedway to meet application requirements.

767-5801 (8xM8 connectors) and 767-5802 (4xM12 connectors) record binary signals from sensors, proximity switches and controls actuators, such as, dc contactors or indicators. Capable of channel and module diagnostics, the 8DIO Modules provide parameterization of filter, inversion, substitute value strategy, manual mode and online simulation. Additionally, the modules can be configured with two 1 kHz counters with event, gateway time or pulse duration modes. They can also directly switch module outputs based on counter status.

Speedway 767 takes controls out of the cabinet and directly to applications via rugged, machine-mountable controllers and modules. It accommodates up to 64 I/O modules/station, 8 channels/module, 512 channels/station and 50 m between digital, analog or specialty modules. M8/M12 molded cables handle all power and signal transmission. The system is programmable via CoDeSys 3.0 and configurable via FDT/DTM technology. Supported protocols include: EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, ProfiNet, Profibus, DeviceNet, and CANopen.

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.
