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
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.
