RFID transponder for large-scale deployments
The VT92 radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder by Harting has a read range of 5 m and has an IP69K housing that make it useful for extreme conditions in automation and medical applications.
Harting's VT92 transponder for North America has a read range up to five meters by adjusting the antenna structure to pitch to 920 MHz. Passive UHF RFID operates globally from 866 to 930 MHz, but within this range there are target frequencies based on the location of the user. By pitching to the North American frequency, the VT92 nearly doubles the usual read range for tags on metal read by a stationary reader.
Suitable for virtually any RFID applications, the VT92 is small for such an efficient transponder, with an IP69K housing that ensure consistently reliable operations in -85° to 410° F (-65° to 210°C) storage temperatures. That high heat resistance makes it autoclavable – ideal for medical sterilization applications, like instrument and other trays used in hospitals and research facilities. The VT92 is designed for large-scale deployments in transportation and logistics, factory automation and machinery, like the paint shop in car manufacturing plants.

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.
