PK pressure sensors provide switch point detection in air and inert gas applications.
PK pressure sensors provide switch point detection in air and inert gas applications. The sensors are IP 65 rated and are suitable for use in robotic and pneumatic applications. They’re available in two body styles, pico and nano, to support a range of mounting options. The sensors provide the two pressure ranges most commonly found in pneumatic applications: 29.5 to 0 in Hg and 0 to 145-psi, with 3% accuracy. The sensors also have two PNP switch points and an M8 connector.
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.
