Wide temperature Ethernet switches
Two new Wago Ethernet switches operate in temperatures between -40 C to +70 C. Both the 852-103 and 852-104 are designed for process, energy, transportation and automation applications.
Wago's 852 Series Ethernet Switch family now features two Wide Temperature models for operation between -40 C to +70 C. The mid-range, 8-port Unmanaged 852-103 and range-topping 7-port Managed 852-104 Switches support networks in harsh process, energy, transportation and automation applications.
The Unmanaged 852-103 Ethernet Switch features a redundant power supply and a 9V–48 V supply voltage range. A top-mounted DIP Switch sets an alarm relay to monitor loss of 24 V dc or port status (selectable by port). Beyond eight 100BASE-TX ports for copper connections, 852-103 provides two 100BASE-FX SFP ports for fiber optic cables.
The 7-port 852-104 Managed Ethernet Switch provides Xpress Ring and Jet Ring networking features. Xpress ring enables networks to recover from link failure within 50 ms; Jet Ring provides redundant data-transmission routes during link failure/damage — recovery occurs in less than 300 ms. In addition, 852-104 provides Web-based management, port configuration and data packet prioritization. IGMP snooping and management access (security) are also offered. In addition to seven 100BASE-TX ports (copper), 852-104 carries two 100BASE-FX SFP ports (fiber optics).
Both feature IP30 metal housing,anti-shock/vibration proprieties and overvoltage/polarity protection. Approvals include CE, UL and UL 508.

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.
