Digital clamp meters recalled

Fluke Corporation is voluntarily recalling certain Digital Clamp Meters that were manufactured between Sept. 1, 2010 and Oct. 31, 2012.

02/01/2013


 

Fluke 373, 374, 375, and 376 Digital Clamp Meters are being voluntarily recalled due to the printed circuit assembly. They may not be properly fastened to the test lead input jack, which may result in inaccurate voltage readings, including a low or no voltage reading on a circuit energized with a hazardous voltage, presenting a shock, electrocution, or thermal burn hazard. This voluntary recall involves Fluke Digital Clamp Meters with the model and serial numbers listed below. Any serial number preceded or followed by the letter “R” is NOT affected by this recall notice.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
