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
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
