Dual output pressure, temperature transducers
These transducers combine both pressure sensor and temperature sensor in one compact package for measuring dynamic and static pressures and temperatures.
The PT170 and PT17XX series transducers combine both pressure sensor and temperature sensor in one compact package for measuring dynamic and static pressures and temperatures. The PT170 provides pressure output in millivolts-per-volt and is designed to provide a variety of high level analog and digital outputs. Both sensor types are welded stainless steel, and incorporate reliable bonded foil strain gauge technology and durable RTD elements. All units are manufactured with shock and vibration protection.
The pressure/temperature sensors also offer user-specific process connections and electrical terminations. Temperature probe dimensions are designed specifically for the user’s applications. A 4-20 mA output version of the series PT17XX is available where intrinsically safe requirements are specified. The model PT1714 is the CANbus version of the series PT17XX.
These dual output pressure/temperature transducers provide significant cost savings where pressure and temperature measurements are concerned. No thermowells are needed; process connections are simplified; sensor inventory is reduced; and reduced wiring make the sensors applicable to process plants and industrial automation and control.

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.
