Pressure transmitter for difficult environments
Rugged design from Wika withstands vibration, shock, and wide temperature variations.
The Wika Tronic A-10 pressure transmitter family is precision engineered and manufactured to fit many industrial and OEM pressure measurement applications. The company says its rugged design provides resistance to vibration, shock, wide temperature variations, RFI, and other extreme environmental conditions that are typical of industrial applications. All-welded stainless steel construction eliminates the need for internal seals.
The A-10 is suited for applications where negative pressures may occur, such as when a system is drained or possibly during a process upset. Such conditions can damage some pressure sensors. Typical applications include, filter monitoring, pump control, vacuum lift technology, and gas analysis.
• Pressure ranges from 0-15 psi up to 0-10,000 psi;
• Non-linearity <+0.5% BFSL standard, <+0.25% available;
• Signal outputs 4-20 mA, 0-10 V, and 0-5 V;
• Electrical connection DIN 175301-803 A and C, M12x1, 6 ft. cable; and

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.
