Print mark contrast sensors
The Datalogic S8 series print mark contrast sensors are designed to detect the difference in the wavelength of the reflected light between a target mark and background.
The Datalogic S8 series print mark contrast sensors have 6 to 12mm sensing distances and are designed to detect the difference in the wavelength of the reflected light between a target mark and background. The contrast sensors use RGB light emission with automatic selection, and feature teach-in sensitivity adjustment, and selectable light on/dark on outputs. The S8 series compact contrast sensors feature horizontal spot orientation, a 25 kHz switching frequency, NPN or PNP logic output, 12 to 30 Vdc operating voltage, and are available with IP67-rated plastic or IP69K-rated 316L stainless steel housings. The S8-series sensors are fitted with a 4-pin M8 quick-disconnect or have an attached 150mm cable with M12 quick-disconnect. The contrast sensors feature vertical or horizontal spot orientation, 10 to 30 Vdc operating voltages, aluminum housings, and NPN/PNP or PNP logic outputs.

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.
