Submersible level transducer
Series 340 is a line of small-bore submersible level transducers that incorporates application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology, which diminishes the effects of temperature changes and improves overall accuracy. The transducers provide a total error band (TEB) of 0.25% over the entire compensated temperature range of -4 F to 140 F. Pressure Systems, Inc. pressuresystems.com Write 321 on PE card

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.
