Force, torque sensor system
The Network Force/Torque (Net F/T) sensor system measures six components of force and torque (Fx, Fy, Fz, Tx, Ty and Tz); provides an EtherNet/IP and CAN bus communication interface; and is compatible with standard Ethernet.
The Network Force/Torque (Net F/T) sensor system measures six components of force and torque (Fx, Fy, Fz, Tx, Ty and Tz); provides an EtherNet/IP and CAN bus communication interface; and is compatible with standard Ethernet. The ODVA-compliant Ethernet/IP interface and is powered by either Power over Ethernet or by an external 11-24 Vdc power supply. Features include multiple interfaces, LAN connectivity, high-speed output, programmable threshold, overload protection, high signal-to-noise ratio, Web-based configuration and built-in status indicators. The sensor system interface is sealed to IP65, and its transducer and cable can be sealed to IP68.

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.
