Differential pressure sensors
A differential pressure sensor has been added to its variable frequency drive and building management systems.
Taco has added a differential pressure sensor to its line of hydronic system components. The sensor relays system performance information to a variable frequency drive (VFD) or to a building management system (BMS). The Taco DPS629 monitors differential pressures of air and compatible gases and liquids. The design uses dual sensors that convert pressure changes into a standard 4 to 20 mA output signal for two-wire circuits. Its small size and few moving parts make for exceptional response time and reliability. Terminal block, zero, and span adjustments are easily accessed under the top cover. Designed to meet NEMA 4x (IP66) construction, the unit is applicable for flow elements, heat exchangers, filters, pumps, and coils.

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.
