Digital clamp meters recalled

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



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.

If you own one of these clamp meters, please stop using it immediately and send it back to Fluke for repair, the company asked. If someone else within your organization is the primary use of the Fluke 37X Series Clamp Meter or is responsible for responding to recall notices, please pass this notice along to the appropriate person. (Please send only the clamp meter; any test leads/boxes/manuals that are sent with the unit will NOT be returned.) To contact Fluke for information on how to have your units repaired, either:

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.
