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

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.
