Miniature M8 prox sensors with extended sensing range
Prox sensors provide compact housings with sensing distances that exceed ferrite core sensors, especially while sensing non-ferrous metals. The sensors feature stainless steel housing and weld field immunity for use in harsh duty environments, such as tool and die, welding and metal forming applications.
picoprox sensors provide compact housings with sensing distances that exceed ferrite core sensors, especially while sensing non-ferrous metals. The sensors feature stainless steel housing and weld field immunity for use in harsh duty environments, such as tool and die, welding and metal forming applications. The technology not only provides extended sensing ranges for all metal types, it also features an integrated pre-damping protection function to reduce the metal-free mounting area in applications. This allows traditionally flush mounted sensors to be recessed by half a turn for increased mechanical protection. Non-flush mounted sensors may be embedded in metal up to the outer edge of the thread on barrel style sensors and on all four sides of rectangular style sensors, causing only a slight reduction in sensing distance. All sensors are 3-wire dc, 10-30 Vdc, with PNP normally-open or closed; or NPN normally-open versions. Cable options include M8 picofast or M12 eurofast connections.

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.
