Hardware - Handheld test, measurement, calibration: The Fluke Ti400 Infrared Camera with LaserSharp Auto Focus deliver consistently in-focus images for the best imaging accuracy. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice honorable mention.The Fluke Ti400 infrared camera features advanced connectivity and accuracy to maximize technicians' productivity in the field. The new infrared camera features LaserSharp Auto Focus, which uses a laser to pinpoint exactly where the camera should focus for consistently in-focus images every time.

The rugged Fluke Ti400 connects to the Fluke CNX Wireless system, allowing it to be used as a main unit to view live measurements of up to five wireless modules (e.g. AC current or voltage modules) on its screen and integrate the data into the infrared image.

It features wireless connectivity to easily transfer images from the camera directly to PCs, which can then be imported into Fluke SmartView software, a professional suite of analysis and reporting tools for optimizing and analyzing infrared images and producing professional reports.

The camera also integrates wirelessly with the new Fluke SmartView Mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Like the desktop version, the SmartView Mobile app allows users to transfer images wirelessly for additional image optimization and analysis and to create professional reports, but now they can share information without returning to the office to create and send reports to clients or management. With the SmartView Mobile app, users can get approval for additional work needed or next steps immediately, increasing efficiency and profitability. And unlike many other apps, SmartView Mobile is optimized for both the iPhone and iPad, maximizing the productivity no matter which device is used.

Only Fluke infrared cameras feature patented IR-Fusion technology, which merges the infrared and visual images into a single view to better discover, diagnose, and communicate problems. With IR-Fusion technology, images can be viewed from full infrared to blended views to a full visible image, to precisely document problem areas. Fluke Corp.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
