Courtesy: WeidmullerWeidmuller's PRV (Push-In Marshalling) and PPV (Push-In Power Distribution) 4/8/16 terminal block series come equipped with "Push In" connection technology. Both product families support efficient wiring concepts for process industry environments and have been specifically developed for the challenging demands of DCS marshalling and distribution signals of PLC applications. PRV and PPV terminals facilitate simple wiring, reduced cabinet space requirements, expanded wire routing and signal distribution capabilities.

Weidmuller's PRV and PPV marshalling and power distribution terminals are particularly compact by design. The 16-way multi-tier PRV terminal block (64 connections per terminal) is presently a worldwide innovation. It can distribute more than 1,700 signals per 39 inches of DIN rail space. The color-coded (Red/White) clamp actuator buttons help to ensure optimum orientation when installing an extensive marshalling panel and carrying out future maintenance trouble shooting. Coding also assists in generating error-free wire termination points.

The PRV family of terminals consists of 4-, 8- and the innovative 16-tier marshalling distribution terminals; the PPV family comprises the 4- and 8-tier power distribution terminals. Both families incorporate Weidmuller’s "Push In" connection technology, which is designed for touch safety against inadvertent short circuiting. "Push In" technology allows users to simply insert the prepared conductor into the terminal point to quickly create a reliable, jolt-proof, gas-tight connection. Moreover, this connection technology ensures vibration-proof and effective conductor retention forces.

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.
