The Genie TS series from Teledyne Dalsa combines advancements in our CMOS imaging sensor technology with a newly optimized camera series that delivers the widest, most powerful feature set ever in a GigE Vision camera. The Genie TS is packed with advanced features such as image filtering, image compression, color correction, color space conversion, and image transfer-on-demand. Engineered to meet the ever increasing speed and image clarity requirements of machine vision, the Genie TS is the perfect blend of form and function for a wide range of industrial applications including semiconductor, electronics, food, packaging and other manufacturing and assembly processes. The Genie TS is also the first machine vision camera platform engineered for Intelligent Traffic/Transportation Systems (ITS) applications. Integrated performance and operational capabilities include remarkable dynamic range to optimize image capture from sun-to-shade, motorized lens control with image-to-image aperture, zoom and focus functionality, auto iris, and both RS-485 and RS-232 ports to control peripherals around the camera. These features are all built into a tough, compact body equipped with a GigE Vision-compliant, direct-to-PC interface which makes high speed data transfer and multi-camera networks easy to deploy.

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.
