This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Fluke Ti125 Thermal Imager has a broad range of powerful capabilities that are so easy to use they can become a regular part of troubleshooting and diagnostic routines, including: IR Optiflex Focus System Automatic focus with a manual focus option for close-ups, IR Optiflex makes it fast and easy to take sharply focused, accurate images. IR-Fusion Technology is used to make this the industry's only point-and-shoot IR-Fusion infrared camera.

Fluke patented-technology blends digital and infrared images into one image to precisely document problem areas. It weighs 1.63 pounds and is balanced to sit perfectly in the hand, and all buttons are within gloved-thumb reach. Light enough to aim either vertically or horizontally and to use for long stretches without tiring out your hand. Built rugged Fluke thermal imagers are built to be put to work. What other infrared camera is tough enough to survive drops up to 6.5 feet and go right back on the job? Multi-mode video recording Record focus-free video in visible light and infrared with full IR-Fusion capabilities. Monitor processes over time, troubleshoot frame-by-frame, and create infrared video reports.

IR PhotoNotes' annotation system captures up to three digital photos per thermal image file and keep an exact record of equipment models, nameplates and other useful information. Electronic Compass makes sure you and others know the location of the problem by saving the compass reading with the thermal image.  Fluke Corp.

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.
