Ultrasonic sensor series works independent of color, surface finish
Balluff’s ultrasonic sensors are designed for distance measurement and operate independently of color and surface finish and are useful for critical applications.
Balluff’s ultrasonic sensors are designed for distance measurement or position detection of granules, fluids and powders. They measure fill levels, heights, and sag without making contact as well as count and monitor the presence of objects. They operate independently of color and surface finish and are not affected by transparent objects that generate strong reflections, making them useful for critical applications.
Balluff ultrasonic sensors are available in a variety of form factors and output types. and have detection ranges that extend from 20 mm to 8 m.
Each ultrasonic series is available as a switching or analog version. All analog versions are available with voltage or current output (0-10 V or 4-20 mA). The M30 version includes variants with two switching outputs (one switching and one analog output, or two switching outputs and one analog output) so that one sensor can adopt the function of a second sensor.

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.
