IP67 GigE cameras
The GigE uEye RE camera series by IDS Imaging meets protection classes IP65 and IP67 and features an M12 circular connector and optically decoupled digital I/Os.
IDS Imaging Development Systems' GigE uEye RE camera series offers Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) functionality to allow both power and data to be transferred by one cable, resulting in greater flexibility when integrated in machine vision systems.
The GigE uEye RE with PoE is perfectly suited for harsh industrial environments with features such as a lockable, dust-tight, spray- and water-resistant M12 circular connector that conforms to IP67, and optically decoupled digital I/Os, as well as two general Purpose I/Os. The camera also offers M5 mounting holes on all sides for flexible positioning, along with an I2C bus for triggering peripheral devices. In combination with protective lens tubes, the camera meets protection classes IP65 and IP67. The GigE uEye RE with PoE offers Plug and Play as well as easy software integration thanks to its comprehensive SDK. A 60 MB in-camera memory can be used to store images which can be transferred at a later time. This feature allows for pre- and post-trigger image capture, making the GigE uEye RE useful for traffic applications.
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.
