EC: Ti125 Thermal Imager
Hardware - Handheld test, measurement, calibration: The Fluke Ti125 thermal Imager is a high-performance, fully radiometric infrared camera for troubleshooting electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment, process equipment, HVAC/R equipment and others. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Award winner.
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.

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.
