Linear inductive sensors are available in five ranges, 14 mm to 120 mm
Pepperl+Fuchs' PMI40-F90-U-V15 and PMI40-F90-I-V15 linear inductive sensors are designed for vertical valve measurements and delivers accurate linear position regardless of sensing range.
Pepperl+Fuchs' PMI40-F90-U-V15 and PMI40-F90-I-V15 linear inductive sensors offer a 40 mm distance measurement that is ideal for vertical valve measurements. With these models, the PMI linear inductive sensors are now available with linear ranges of 14 mm, 40 mm, 80 mm, 104 mm and 120 mm to satisfy a wide range of sensing requirements.
The optimal distance from PMI40 to the standard sensor target (BT-F90-W) is 2 mm, but an available sensing range of 0.5 to 3 mm delivers accurate linear position regardless of the sensing range. The 40 mm linear distance delivers 33 um resolution. The shorter housing of the PMI40 enables it to be applied where models with longer housings are unsuitable.

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.
