Radar level transmitters
Endress+Hauser's FMR5X radar level transmitter can measure level or volume of liquids and bulk solids products in metal or plastic tanks, stilling wells or other vessels up to 131 ft.
Endress+Hauser's Micropilot FMR5X series of free space radar level transmitters can be used to measure level or volume with a built-in 32-point strapping table. The liquids can be measured in metal or plastic tanks, stilling wells, bypass chambers or other vessels up to 131 ft high with standard units or 197 ft with enhanced dynamics option. The instrument can also be used to detect minimum or maximum levels to prevent overfilling or empty tanks in addition to continuous monitoring of the level.
The FMR5X measures the distance from the process connection to the product surface and is equipped with multi-echo tracking algorithms that ensure that interference echoes are not interpreted as level echoes. Multi-echo tracking uses self-learning algorithms that build short term and long term history to check the echoes for plausibility and increased reliability.
A linearization table of up to 32 points can be entered either manually or semi-automatically. This function provides a linear 4-20mA output signal for spheres, horizontal cylindrical tanks and vessels with a conical outlet. Linearization can also be used to convert the level measurement into volume or mass engineering units.

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.
