Passive 6-port M12 junction box
The 6-port M12 passive junction box by Turck integrates multiple devices into a single unit. It has two discrete signals per port, allowing the unit to provide up to 12 discrete signals and has IP67-rated ingress protection.
Turck's 6-port M12 passive junction box, designed to easily integrate multiple devices into a single unit. The 6-port model allows simple installation in diverse factory automation applications, ranging from packaging and automotive to material handling and mobile equipment.
With one or two discrete signals per port, the 6-port junction box is capable of providing up to 12 discrete signals—ensuring reliable connectivity for multiple devices. The junction box consolidates several discrete devices in an area to one device, which is then connected to a controller via a single cable. This eliminates each device requiring its own individual cable, delivering a more cost-effective, streamlined connectivity solution.
The 6-port model provides 2 A of current per signal and up to 9 A total current per junction box. For durable performance, the M12 passive junction box features IP67-rated ingress protection and reliably operates in temperatures ranging from -40 C to +85 C degrees.

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.
