The HVAC Meter Kit includes a rugged TRMS multimeter with NCV detection and 30:1 Ultra Wide-Range IR Thermometer with K Port. The Meter Kit offers 19 functions over 48 ranges. It measures AC/DC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance, frequency and duty cycle, and checks for continuity and diode integrity. It can operate in auto or manual ranging mode and is drop-resistant to a height of 6 ft. The IR thermometer measures surface temperature using one of two methods: non-contact (via an IR thermometer with laser pointer) or contact (via a K-type bead thermocouple probe). Readings are displayed on a backlit 5-digit LCD.

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.
