Configurable digital input and output module
The Wago IP67 Speedway 767 is designed to run in direct input, direct output and mixed digital IO modules.
Two 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
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.
