Temperature sensor with integrated resistance detector
The TS530 by Turck has an integrated resistance temperature detector (RTD) and has IP69K protection ratings, making it ideal for harsh manufacturing environments.
Turck's TS530 temperature sensor features an integrated resistance temperature detector (RTD) and a simple, push-button programming and large, highly visible LED displays ensure that allows for easy operation. The TS530 also has a rotatable display that can turn up to 340 degrees allows for flexible viewing in the field. The sensor also sends feedback to a PLC, allowing operators to easily monitor measurement performance from virtually any location.
Turck TS530 temperature sensors feature a design for easy mounting and installation, allowing users to mount them directly to a tank or pipe with no mounting bracket required using a 1/2NPT process connection. The sensor meets IP69K protection ratings and operates in temperatures ranging from -50 to 150 degrees Celsius, making it ideal for harsh manufacturing environments.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
