Multiprotocol technology for industrial Ethernet
The Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology by Turck can be applied for anything that uses a host system with Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, or Profinet.
Turck's Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology for Distributed I/O allows users to employ one device for three protocols—EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and Profinet—creating easier integration with host control systems. Multiprotocol is designed to operate consistently across all Turck distributed I/O product families. The Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology provides dependable application of the protocols for Turck’s entire Industrial Ethernet portfolio, ensuring easy device application, minimal maintenance and simplified product specification.
Turck’s Industrial Ethernet offering can be applied in any application that uses a host system with Modbus TCP/IP (client), EtherNet/IP (scanner) or Profinet (master). Upon network power-up, the Turck Ethernet device will recognize the network protocol available to the network.

2012 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.
