Middletown, PA – Phoenix Contact released 7/8-in. Mini SAC cordsets , the first connectorized cables to receive compliance registration in accordance with Fieldbus Foundation's FF-844 requirements for H1 Type A cable. The H1 Cable Test Specification (Document FF-844) is designed for manufacturers developing cables for Foundation Fieldbus H1 (31.25 kbit/s) installations. The test cases, based on IEC 61158-2:2003 standard, include impedance, capacitive unbalance, connector pin-outs, and attenuation.
The Type A overmolded cordset for H1 physical media is constructed of instrumentation tray cable (ITC)/power-limited tray cable (PLTC-ER). Under the National Electric Code, it can be used as open wiring without a metallic sheath or armor between the cable tray and equipment for up to 15 meters. It is not necessary to install conduit to every device.
Phoenix Contact offers two other connectors for Foundation Fieldbus applications: a junction tee to extend connection from a device to the main trunk line and a 4-position male terminator that attaches to the end of each segment along the trunk.
These industrial network connectors feature stainless-steel coupling nuts and knurled screws to withstand heavy impact and resist corrosion in harsh environments. IP67-rated, RoHS-compliant, and sunlight-resistant, connectors meet IEC and ISA standards for H1 physical layer.

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.
