Video borescope systems
DCS1800 and DCS1600 video borescope systems
The DCS1800 and DCS1600 video borescopes each come standard with a slim 0.22-in. diameter, 3.28-ft. long flexible-obedient, front view camera probe that is water, oil and dust proof to IP67 standards. This standard probe features a depth of field of 0.4- to 12-in. and four adjustable white LEDs that yield superior image resolution. It provides a horizontal field angle of 46-deg, vertical field angle of 34-deg and diagonal field angle of 56-deg. Both systems also come with three interchangeable mirrored viewing tips that provide extra-wide view angles of 70-deg, 90-deg and 110-deg. The DCS1800 and DCS1600 each feature a 3.5-in. color monitor for real-time viewing and a removable 2GB SD card for recording video and still images.
They feature more than 15 probe options now available for each system, including different probe types, diameters, viewing angles and lengths from 3 ft. to 72 ft. and include soft metal and VGA resolution articulating probes.

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.
