Two Technologies Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged hand held computers and terminals used in global applications, introduces the Hydrus Luna RFID, an ultra-rugged and powerful hand held computer designed for long-term daily operation in the harshest working conditions. With the world's highest battery capacity of 37 Watt-hours, the Hydrus Luna functions for over 40 hours, working overtime on various field applications, the company says. Hydrus Luna RFID features an HF 13.56MHz Reader/Writer housed within the Hydrus PACK, fully supports most ISO 15693, ISO 14443A&B, MIFARE, LR-1512, I-CODE. Tag-it and my-d tags. Hydrus Luna RFID is ideal for demanding applications where item level identification is critical, such as manufacturing, warehousing, access control, library, laundry, security, agriculture and other applications.

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. Integrated speaker and microphone enable use of the device for voice communications. Audio Bridge Circuitry simplifies routing of audio signals to and from the speaker and microphones to a variety of specified locations.

Hydrus Luna RFID offers wireless communications and networking capabilities via Bluetooth, WLAN and 802.11b/g. RS-232 and USB ports are available for adding peripherals and accessories that extend the product's utility. Integrated precision GPS is optional. Hydrus Luna RFID is PACK Ready, allowing expansion space for the addition of your custom electronics, such as LF RFID, HID RF/IR, proprietary radios and other data collection modules. Integrated precision GPS is optional

A powerful computer with 256MB SDRAM and up to 32GB of data storage, Hydrus Luna RFID uses Microsoft Windows CE .NET 5.0 operating system and a Marvell PXA270 processor operating at 624MHz. Units feature a dual smart battery system, with both batteries having a charge circuit and "gas gauge" to monitor battery condition during charging and discharging.

With its rugged design, extended battery life and customized keyboard, Hydrus Luna RFID is ideally suited for a range of indoor and outdoor applications in vertical markets where durability, operational longevity as well as flexible operations in low light conditions are mandatory; including law enforcement (meter reading/traffic), agriculture, inspection, forensics, environmental (water testing), security (crowd control), fleet management and even the hospitality sectors. www.2t.com

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.
