Belden Inc. has released Ethernet/IP modules that can connect to discrete wiring devices via 16 digital I/O channels with universal input/output or input functionality. Courtesy: BeldenBelden Inc. (NYSE:BDC) introduced EtherNet/IP I/O modules facilitating the connection of discrete wiring devices (sensor/actuators) via 16 digital I/O channels with universal input/output or input functionality directly to industrial controllers.

These EtherNet/IP modules are available with 16 universal user-selectable digital inputs/outputs (0980 ESL 710) or 16 dedicated inputs (0980 ESL 711). The easy diagnostic concept helps to find the exact location of any faults for each I/O port with “on-board” LED diagnostic indicators. Access to this information is also available via the EtherNet/IP network: making it possible to evaluate the details on a centralized operating and display system, such as a Human Machine Interface (HMI), without having to configure the module.

Both modules fully support ODVA’s Device Level Ring (DLR) standard, enabling multi-port EtherNet/IP devices to operate in a ring or linear topology. DLR insures that a single-point failure does not prevent communication between the remainder of the functioning devices. The integrated switch allows both ring and line (daisy chain) topology. A substantial cost saving can be obtained as external switches are not needed.

Due to a rugged housing and IP67 terminations, these EtherNet/IP modules require no protective enclosure and can be mounted on machines. Operational temperatures are -10 C to +60 C; and 24 V dc (11-30 V dc) power input is through standardized 7/8-in. 4-pole power connectors. Network addressing is via rotary switches, BOOTP or DHCP.

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.
