Network Integration - Network hardware: TURCK Overmolded Mil-Spec Cordsets are completely assembled and 100 percent factory tested with no field assembly, soldering or wiring required, delivering an easy, robust connectivity solution. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice honorable mention.Traditional assembled Mil-Spec connectors come as an arrangement of components that require assembling and hand wiring before they can be used. This increases chances for mis-wiring and incurs high labor costs.

Offering a more robust and secure connectivity solution than field-assembled versions, TURCK Overmolded Mil-Spec Cordsets are completely assembled and 100% factory tested to ensure optimal performance for applications in harsh environments, including automotive, mobile equipment, and oil and gas.

Featuring a unique overmolded design, TURCK mil-spec cordsets eliminate field assembly, soldering and wiring—allowing operators to reduce downtime and maintenance labor and costs. Overmolded cordsets also provide the flexibly to seal to a wide variety of cable types and are compatible with standard Mil-Spec receptacles.

To meet flexible application requirements, TURCK Overmolded Mil-Spec Cordsets are available in three different connector styles—threaded, bayonet and reverse bayonet—in addition to over 50 standard versions. In addition to a wide standard offering, TURCK also offers custom capabilities, including labeling to enhance custom branding, mold colors and wiring to simplify machine assembly.

TURCK Overmolded Mil-Spec Cordsets are rated IP68 and built to meet NEMA 6P standards, enabling full operation and protection in virtually any environmental condition, including temporary submersion in water, falling dirt, incidental contact and the external formation of ice. Cordsets also undergo straight and right angle pull testing to ensure they meet and exceed industry performance standards in the harshest of applications.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
