Binder-USA released a new version of the 692 and 693 series connectors good for outer cable diameters of 14 mm.
The new designs maintain the IP67 environmental protection rating when fully mated and terminated to cable having an outer diameter within the recommended range, which varies by part number, company says. The connectors are available with or without SEV, VDE, and UL approvals. Male and female cable plugs or panel-mount, flanged sockets are available with two contact configurations: 3+PE and 6+PE. The available termination styles include screw-type, solder-cup and crimp terminations (crimp contacts & crimp tooling ordered separately). The 692 and 693 series connectors are intermateable and interchangeable with other manufacturers’ industry standard connectors.

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.
