Stainless steel housed photo-electric sensor for heavy duty applications
Optex increases durability, protection with stainless steel housed photo-electric DC sensor series; features include high pressure, high temperature resistances, scratch resistant lenses.
The ZM Photo-Electric DC Sensor Series from Optex FA Sensors provides increased durability with a SUS316L stainless steel housing and IP69K protection conforming to the IEC60529 rating system. The self-contained sensor has the ability to meet some of the most severe environmental demands such as high pressure, high temperature detergent washing, thus, reducing replacement costs where sensors frequently fail. The anti-static PPSU lens is not only scratch resistant, but also repels water and oil, making this sensor the most resilient in its class. Common industries that would benefit most from the ZM Series include, raw food processing, meat processing and beverage processing.

2012 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.
