Turck A-Size powerfast Connectors

These IP67 rated connectors are manufactured to handle high current applications for machine power distribution, while delivering resistance to vibration commonly associated with conveyors, motors and material handling applications.
A-Size powerfast connectors are available in cordsets with tray rated, exposed run PVC flexlife cable—which provides durability and high performance on fast-paced production lines. These cordsets are additionally offered with or without STOOW rating and feature 14 AWG wires that allow users to replace hardwiring with a robust, quick disconnect system. This design saves significant installation time and money versus traditional conduit systems.
Turck ’s A-Size powerfast line offers male and female, straight connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. To complete the system, fully encapsulated mating receptacles with 1/2-in.-14 NPT mounting threads are available.
Turck says it provides superior quality sensing, connectivity and network products to help manufacturers improve their automated processes.

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.
