Flowmeter: Promass 83 from Endress+Hauser
Promass 83 from Endress+Hauser is billed as the first mass flowmeter for EtherNet/IP Networks. It measures flow, density, and viscosity.
The Promass 83 from Endress+Hauser is billed as the first mass flowmeter for EtherNet/IP Networks. In addition to measuring flow and density, the Promass 83 can also measure viscosity. Users can measure viscosity, online in real time and adjust control parameters accordingly, rather than waiting for lab results. The device is also capable of measuring gases. The EtherNet/IP interface gives users direct access to device data without additional configuration or programming. By using a standard, unmodified protocol, this data can then be shared seamlessly and very easily across the entire network. It can then be viewed either on line-side HMIs or via existing Ethernet networks, on computers in offices and control rooms-even remotely over the Internet. www.us.endress.com

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.
