Incremental encoder for IO system
The Speedway IP67 I/O-System by Wago has an HTL Incremental Encoder/Counter module designed to evaluate encoders at 24 V signal levels in harsh environments.
Wago Corporation's machine-mountable Speedway 767-5202 evaluates incremental encoders and SSI absolute encoders at 24 V signal levels in harsh environments. It also provides a counting function for binary signals up to 250 kHZ. This makes it ideal for counting motor revolutions in applications such as top drives, line shafts or motion-intensive machinery found in food processing and packaging.
The Speedway 767-5202 provides two 8-pole M12 encoder ports. Channel configuration options include: Type of evaluation and sensor, output format, filters, inversion, latch, gate, preset, cam, simulation and limits. 767-5202 also has two 5-pole M12 ports with four configurable digital inputs/outputs for sensors and actuators. Two of these channels can serve as pulse-width-modulated outputs, with the 100 Hz–10 kHz clock frequency having a pulse-width repetition rate of 0–100%. Users may set previously defined outputs directly as a function of counter readings.
The 767-5202 is configurable via fieldbus-independent FDT/DTM, or via fieldbus-dependent device descriptions (such as GSD or GSDML). It is programmable via USB interface integrated into the fieldbus coupler, or directly via fieldbus (not applicable to Ethernet-based couplers).

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.
