Dual rate meter
Dual rate meter monitors two signal inputs at once and performs application-specific calculations.
The PAXDR dual rate meter provides real-time viewing of dual
input rates paired with sophisticated math functions to measure and display the
sum, difference, ratio, draw or percentage of total between the two rates. The
meter is a 5-digit dual rate indicator and 6-digit dual totalizer that monitors
mission-critical factors such as inflow and outflow, unwind and rewind wire tension,
feed and tension roll speed and other types of production rates.
The meter does not require complex programming that would
otherwise be required to perform application-specific calculations. Users can
select the desired scale for each of the two signal inputs using the meter's programmable
function keys, with independent scaling provided for A and B totalizers. Also,
10-point scaling for both input rates is provided for challenging non-linear
Field-installable plug-in option cards provide features such
as four setpoint outputs, assigned to any rate or totalizer value and
configured to suit varying control and alarm requirements; retransmitted analog
output, scaled independently of the input range; and communication and bus
capabilities such as RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, DeviceNet and Profibus-DP.

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.
