Standard series pneumatic valve manifolds feature plug-in valves and sub-bases, which completely eliminate hand-wiring of individual solenoid coils, wireways, and the internal wiring between manifold sub-bases. The manifolds feature plug-in electrical connections which conform to ISO 5599/II signal path requirements. In addition, the valves and manifold sub-bases conform to the ISO standard 5599/I, which regulates the port designations and the shape of the flow path/connection surface between the pneumatic valves and sub-bases.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
