Encoder interface box for safety applications
Heidenhain EIB 2391S encoder interface box is designed for safety-oriented applications with Siemens Sinamics drive components. It uses an 8-pin M12 connection that allows the user to connect to small locations.
Heidenhain has developed the EIB 2391S interface box to increased encoder compatibility with Siemens controls. Ideal for applications with Siemens Sinamics drive components, the EIB 2391S enhances the serial interface offering for many of Heidenhain's encoders.
The EIB 2391S makes it possible to convert a Heidenhain encoder's output signal from EnDat 2.2 to Drive CLiQ. Heidenhain's EIB2391S 8-pin M12 connection allows the user to pull the cable needed to connect to the interface electronics box through even the smallest locations. Due to the benefits of EnDat 2.2, the EIB 2391S is capable of transmitting diagnostic information into a format recognized by the Siemens Sinamics drive components. Increasing demand for safer machine tool operation, Heidenhain's EIB 2391S was developed to be used in safety-oriented applications.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
