The MSE 1000 by Heidenhain uses multi-channel electronics for metrology applications. It can combine up to 250 sensors for a variety of measurement needs. Courtesy: HeidenhainHeidenhain's MSE 1000 modular multiplexor brings multi-channel electronics to metrology applications, allowing for the connection of many different sensors and the acquisition of measured values via Ethernet. Over 250 devices can be connected, especially useful in production line measurement systems.

Additionally, large complex parts such as those found in automobile and aerospace manufacturing require large amounts of different sensors to fully qualify. The MSE 1000 provides the hardware base to combine up to 250 sensors of varying types to satisfy today’s measurement needs. In its basic configuration, the MSE 1000 consists of a power module and a basic communication module. After that, it can be customized as needed. Additional modules can be attached to allow for the connection of incremental and absolute linear encoders, rotary encoders, a wide variety of LVDTs, and analog inputs. I/O modules and compressed air modules are
even available for closed loop, automated in process gauging. The modules are easily mounted on a standard DIN rail in an electrical cabinet out of the way of the production line.

The software package included with the MSE, MSEsetup, allows a user to configure and master all the connected channels. MSEsetup also has graphical diagnostics of connected sensors and MSE modules and allows for data transfer to a PC, and the writing of measured values directly to an Excel table. Additionally, the driver is included to allow a user to create their own customized software.

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.
