RTD sensors available
RTDs are designed for precision, repeatability and have a high signal-to-noise ratio.
Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) sensors are designed for a wide variety of process and industrial applications. Difficult application problems can be solved and solutions can be tailored to meet specific application requirements.
The RTD sensors are designed to ensure precise and repeatable measurements as well as meet environmental requirements for each application. A high signal-to-noise output increases the accuracy of data transmission and permits greater distances between the sensor and the measuring equipment. The sensors can be configured to meet specific application needs with options including element type, lead wire configuration, termination style, sheath materials, lengths and diameters, process connection heads, transmitters, thermowells, spring loading, flanges and surface mount packages.
Predictable resistance at a given temperature can be produced. Resistance wire RTDs have a positive coefficient by increasing resistance when the temperature increases. These sensors work in a variety of industries including processing, food equipment, plastics processing, petrochemical processing, microelectronics, and air, gas and liquid temperature measurement.

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.
