Eaton Cube and Pancake family of inductive sensors

Cube and pancake style sensors are popular among automotive, metalworking, block and brick manufacturers, OEMs and manufacturers of heavy-duty trucks, trains and lifts.

Both the cube and pancake sensors feature the "auto-configure" output technology found on the dc voltage models. This feature, first introduced in the Eaton iProx tubular sensor, auto-detects if the sensor has been wired for NPN (sinking) or PNP (sourcing) and switches the senor to that mode without user intervention. This feature, combined with complementary outputs (1NO/1NC) found on both products, means users can replace four sensor models with one. Doing so allows distributors and machinery OEMs to reduce inventory, and resolve a wider array of challenging sensor applications.

Additional features include:

• Sensing ranges up to 100 mm for pancake and 40 mm for cube;
• Heavy-duty construction and temperature ratings down to -40 °C to handle harsh sensing environments;
• Bright power and output status LEDs;
• Micro- or mini-connector options; and
• Competitive pricing targeted at OEM customers.

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.
