Turck IP68 1-1/8 inch industrial network connector
Minneapolis, MN – Turck has expanded its 1-1/8 inch minifast connector line to handle more applications with a 19-pin connector that is rated for up to 300 V, 4 A per pin. It is a solution for applications that require a more cost-effective solution than a traditional 19-pin M23 connector, such as material handling in manufacturing and packaging applications.
The connector adds to the existing 9, 10, and 12-pin 1-1/8 in. minifast line. Other minifast connector sizes and pin counts are available, including a 7/8 in. connector with two through six pins, and a 1-in. connector with six through eight pins. All provide IEC IP68 protection.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
