Accelerometer for turbine applications
The EX611A20 high temperature charge mode accelerometer from IMI Sensors is designed for harsh conditions like gas turbines and nuclear power plants and can survive up to 1300 F.
IMI Sensors' EX611A20 high termperature charge mode accelerometer comes with 10 feet of integral hard-line cable terminating in a LEMO connector.
IMI has designed the EX611A20 to be used in various gas turbine applications such as bearing health monitoring, condition monitoring, and structural damage monitoring. Other applications include commissioning of nuclear power plants.
The new model extends temperature survivability range to 1300 °F (704 °C) in an industrial housing. The unit comes standard with a 10 ft. (3 m) integral hard-line cable terminating in a LEMO connector, but other cable lengths and terminating connectors are available (2 pin mini MIL).

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.
