New Pro-M series industrial power supplies from Weidmuller
Weidmuller Pro-M series power supplies have been optimized for use in most dc power applications, with many ac/dc inputs over -25 °C to +70 °C.
Weidmuller announces the introduction of a new series of economical, general-purpose industrial power supplies- the Pro-M Series. The Pro-M Series power supplies have been optimized for use in practically all dc power applications, with a wide range of ac/dc inputs and an extended temperature range of -25 °C to +70 °C, the company says. These new power supplies feature a slim housing design and high power reserves for reliable start-up of loads with high inrush currents, such as motor starting applications. Excellent electrical specifications and high immunity against fluctuations in input voltage or "brown-outs" make these compact modules the best choice to power sensitive loads in applications such as tooling and molding, company says.
The power supplies are available in six single-phase and four three-phase models with 24 V dc output voltages, and up to 40 A output currents. This voltage range enables the Pro-M Series supplies to be used in virtually any single-phase or three-phase application. It "allows for design flexibility, is a space saving solution and has platform assurance for any 24 volt control system," said Tobin Robertson, product manager.
All of the new power supplies include innovative features such as integrated overvoltage temperature protection, available diagnostic output, external shutdown ability, a power OK signal, and convenient remote on/off functions which make the units easy to maintain or troubleshoot, Weidmuller says.
Designed for use in numerous applications around the world, the Pro-M Series power supplies are UL and CSA approved. They feature a rugged metal housing, vibration- and shock-proof construction, and an operating temperature range of -25˚C to +70 ˚C. The Pro-M Series offers users easy installation with detachable screw terminal blocks and snap-on DIN-rail mounting. For added flexibility, mounting tabs are also included for direct panel mount.

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.
