Turck adds more rugged Ethernet switches, managed, unmanaged
Turck rugged Ethernet switches include unmanaged models for 4- or 8-pin M12 twisted pair cable, and 4- and 5-pin 7/8-16UN power cable.
Turck's line of rugged, harsh duty Ethernet switches has been updated to include unmanaged models that will support either 4- or 8-pin M12 twisted pair cable, as well as 4- and 5-pin 7/8-16UN power cable. The 4-pin switch is suitable for EtherNet/IPTMapplications with managed and unmanaged options. The 8-pin switch is suitable for standard Ethernet applications. The encapsulated switches are capable of information transfer and real-time I/O control in harsh duty locations. The switches support 10/100 Base-T with twisted pair Ethernet cable. The unmanaged switches are available with 5 or 9 ports, while the managed switch is available with 9 ports, one of which is used as a RS-232 configuration port. Switches are simple to set up by applying power and connecting devices to the ports. A managed switch supports IGMP, RSTP, SNMP and V-LAN and may be configured by the RS-232 serial configuration port or by an internal Web page. www.turck.us

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.
