Medium duty encoders, solid or hollow shaft
The Koyo medium duty encoders now include PPR models and are available in push-pull or differential configurations.
AutomationDirect has extended its series of Koyo medium duty encoders to include high PPR (Pulses Per Revolution) models. Available in Totem Pole (Push-Pull) or line driver (differential) configurations, the encoders feature a 50 mm diameter body with a 35 mm depth. Models are constructed with an 8 mm diameter solid or hollow shaft and offer incremental resolutions of 3000, 3600, or 5000 PPR. The encoders are fitted with a 2 m cable with tinned ends and are available with either 5 V dc or 5 to 30 V dc inputs; the high-PPR encoders provide up to 200 kHz response frequency.

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.
