Phantom Miro family of digital cameras from Vision Research consists of high-speed cameras targeted at industrial applications ranging from vehicle crash testing to engineering and scientific research. Cameras feature a high-performance blend of resolution, speed, and light sensitivity for situations demanding high-speed image capture and motion analysis. Phantom Miro 1 entry-level unit can take images with a resolution of up to 640 x 480 pixels at any of eight fixed-frame rates, ranging from 50 to 500 fps. Phantom Miro 2 gives users the ability to control key camera parameters such as frame rates and shutter speeds in increments of one unit. Features include a maximum resolution of 640 x 480; frame rates from 1 to 1,000 fps; and the ability to record in either 8- or 10-bit pixel depth. Phantom Miro 3 is optimized for applications such as hydraulically controlled, gas energized (HYGE) crash simulations used in the automotive industry. It is rated to survive 100g acceleration and has a maximum resolution of 800x600 at up to 1000 fps. Phantom Miro 4 features the same high-performance CMOS imaging sensor with the ability to record at 800 x 600 at up to 2,200 fps, the highest resolution of the family. All cameras are based on the company’s CMOS sensor designs and offer a sensitivity rating of 4800 ISO monochrome.

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.
