Non-contact infrared temperature sensor, transmitter
OS137 Series from Omega offers three measuring ranges, many features in a small package.
Omega’s new compact high-performance, industrial infrared sensor and transmitter combination, model OS137, provides a variety of features and options packaged into a small stainless steel housing. The standard features are adjustable emissivity, 10 to 1 optical field of view, adjustable alarm set point and voltage output to drive external relays, and six pre-selected analog outputs that can easily interface with all meters, controllers, dataloggers, recorders, computer boards, and PLCs. The unit comes with two hex nuts, 1.8 m (6 ft.) shielded cable for power and output connections, and complete operator’s manual.
Three temperature ranges available:
• OS137-1: 0 to 100 °C (32 to 212 °F);
• OS137-2: -18 to 260 °C (0 to 500 °F); and
• OS137-3: -18 to 538 °C (0 to 1,000 °F).
Outputs include: 4-20 mA, 0-5 Vdc, 0-10 Vdc, 10 mV/deg, and Type K thermocouple. Accuracy is ±1.5% Rdg or 3.5 °F (2 °C), whichever is greater with repeatability of ±1% Rdg or 2 °F (1 °C).

Annual 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.
