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
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.
