IO-Link contrast sensors
The DK12-11-IO series contrast sensors detect differences in two colors of media with a three-color light source.
DK12-11-IO series contrast sensors reliably detect differences in two colors of media, with a powerful three-color light source that solves even the most difficult contrast applications. These sensors are IO-Link compatible enabling them to provide enhanced configuration options, visibility of the sensor’s color evaluation and a deeper level of control than is attainable with conventional contrast sensors. DK12-11-IO with IO-Link offers more setup options than conventional contrast sensors, including customizable and highly visible diagnostic LEDs, the ability to invert the output state and disable the adjustment potentiometer for tamperproof requirements, and logging the output.

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.
