2-wire DC inductive proximity sensors
Omega Engineering new inductive proximity sensors are designed with a range of up to 20 mm and can withstand shock, vibration and environmental resistance, the company said.
Omega Engineering’s new series of 2-wire dc inductive proximity sensors has a sensing distance range of 2 to 20 mm (0.08 to .79-in.).
The proximity sensor comes in shielded and unshielded models with short barrel or standard lengths. The E2E series reportedly has solid potted internal circuitry to withstand shock, vibration and environmental resistance such as exposure to cutting oils and washdown locations. This product is widely used in automation and robotics applications. Perfect for detecting metal impurities for food and pharmaceutical industries.

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.
