Wago Corp.'s new 750-352 ECO Ethernet Fieldbus Coupler enables the transition from centralized PAC/PLCs to flexible, decentralized networks. The cost-effective ECO Coupler supports prominent protocols such as MODBUS TCP/IP and EtherNet I/P, and accommodates 64 I/O modules. Ideal for applications with medium I/O counts, the 750-352 allows integrators to reduce costs via economical distributive controls.

The DIN-rail mount, UL listed ECO Coupler ensures reliable data transmission and high-speed communication via 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet port. The ECO Coupler's compatibility with the 300+ analog, digital and specialty modules within the Wago-I/O-System provides customization of distributive control applications. Cage Clamp Spring Pressure Connection Technology ensures all terminations are fast, easy and maintenance-free.

The ECO Coupler can also expand the performance and usability of Allen-Bradley RSLogix 5000 systems with Wago's free Add-On Instructions. The downloadable Add-On instructions easily integrate Wago-I/O-System specialty functions - see related video . The no cost download allows easy selection of applicable instruction(s) for inserting into the program.

Wago says it is the leader in spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections. Products include DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the Wago-I/O-System and others. www.wago.us.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
