High-density, 16-point I/O modules
The 16-point I/O ribbon-cable modules offer compact solutions for streamlining control-to-machine wiring. With the flat ribbon cable, the modules facilitate the use of pre-wired assemblies to minimize wiring time and errors.
The 16-point I/O ribbon-cable modules offer compact
solutions for streamlining control-to-machine wiring. The DIN-rail mount
modules feature 16 inputs (750-1400), 16 outputs (750-1500) or 8 inputs/8
outputs (750-1502) and an HE10 ribbon cable interface. With the flat ribbon
cable, the modules facilitate the use of pre-wired assemblies to minimize
wiring time and errors.
The 16-point I/O modules are compatible with WAGO's
interface boards, ranging from an LED-equipped 120 Vac to 24 Vdc input
interface board, to a 3.75-inch-wide, 16-channel relay interface board
featuring 5 mm plug-in relays. For additional voltage flexibility, the 16-point
I/O modules can pair with select interface boards to connect to any voltage up
to 120 Vac at 6 A. All 16-point I/O modules carry onboard LEDs for status
indication and use CAGE CLAMP spring pressure terminations for field
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
