IP67/IP68 rated for protection against dust and water, Hydrus Luna RFID is ideal for outdoor use in extreme environments on both land and sea. Double wall case construction of GE Xenoy provides impervious sealing against environmental conditions, with drop and shock protection covering internal components. Hydrus Luna RFID also offers a 320 x 240 Landscape QVGA display with integral touch screen as well as "Super-Sunlight" readability, both outdoors and in.

A 5MP (4MP processed) True-Camera-System captures color images and bar codes with real auto focus, LEDs and a True-Flash-System. Users can capture then relay images and data from virtually any remote field location and transmit them back to a main office or centralized location.

A 55-key alpha numeric keypad with application-specific graphics plus an eight-position joystick allows for individual or combined operations. Customized keypads allow for intuitive, user-friendly operations and finger tip control. Individual hard keys are uniquely suited for operation with gloved hands.

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.
