MooreHawke TrunkGuard TPS400 fieldbus power supply, up to 500 mA per segment
MooreHawke introduces the TrunkGuard TPS400 Fieldbus Power Supply for general purpose and non-incendive applications.
MooreHawke, a division of Moore Industries-International, Inc., introduces the TrunkGuard TPS400 Fieldbus Power Supply for general purpose and non-incendive applications. Available models supply 350 mA (for non-isolated, energy limited applications) or 500 mA (for high current demand applications) of isolated, conditioned simplex (non-redundant) or duplex (redundant) power to up to four segments.
The fieldbus power supply has a high-availability, modular design featuring modules that are hot-swappable with load-sharing in redundant pairs. This maintains power to the segment in the instance that one module in a pair needs to be removed. Additional features include a rugged industrial metal housing, optional pluggable surge protection, and multi-segment H1 connectors that deliver simple, error-free wiring to a DCS and reduce installation time. The TPS400 also has an economical Diagnostics Module (FDM252) option that provides a master alarm and LED-based alarms for segment noise, dc voltage levels and conditioner status faults. Ideal for use with MooreHawke Series 200 and Series 300 TrunkGuard Fieldbus Device Couplers , the TPS400 also works perfectly with any other manufacturer's non-intrinsically-safe fieldbus device couplers.

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.
