Ground fault sensors, DC current transducers, switches
AutomationDirect acuAMP line of current sensors now includes AC ground fault sensors and DC current transducers and switches.
GFS series of ground fault sensors from AutomationDirect monitors all current-carrying conductors in grounded single and three-phase delta or wye systems. Available in fixed-core models, the GFS series features jumper-selectable setpoints of 5, 10 or 30 mA. The sensors can accommodate up to 14 AWG copper wire and feature mechanical relay outputs with either manual or auto reset. UL and CE have approved GFS series of ground fault sensors.
The DCT series of DC current transducers combines a Hall Effect sensor and signal conditioner into a single package for use in dc current applications up to 400A. Designed to be compatible with most PLCs, data loggers and SCADA systems, the DCT series features jumper-selectable current input ranges and industry standard 4-20 mA or +/- 10 V dc outputs. The are available in split-core or fixed-core models.
DCS100 series dc current switches feature jumper-selectable current input ranges up to 100 A and are available in normally-open solid-state and SPDT relay output models. The switches are equipped with removable terminal blocks which accept up to 12 AWG solid or stranded wire.
All acuAMP sensors are panel-mountable; convenient DIN rail adaptor accessories are also available.
The complete acuAMP series offers outstanding features, flexibility, and durability. Backed with a five-year warranty, the complete line of current transducers and switches provides dependable service for virtually any application.

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.
