Dalsa Corporation has launched a new series within its Genie line of GigE Vision-compliant cameras. The Genie HC Series is built for high speed color acquisition with uncompromised image quality.  Typical applications for the Genie HC series include electronic manufacturing inspection, intelligent traffic systems (ITS), and food inspection. Genie HC area scan cameras will be showcased at the Vision 2010 International Trade fair for Machine Vision, in Messe Stuttgart, Germany, November 9 – 11, in Hall 4, booth #D 51.

 Dalsa’s Genie HC series is comprised of three high-speed, color camera models:

  • Genie HC640 up to 300 fps in full resolution (640 x 480)

  • Genie HC1400 up to 75 fps in full resolution (1400 x 1024)

Additional features include global electronic shutter with exposure control and on-board flat-field correction to produce crisp, clear images. The GigE Vision camera acts as a single machine vision component – integrating both advanced camera and board image acquisition technologies in one small package.

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.
