Extended vibration monitoring
Two new safety-rated versions of the CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer are available for evaluating the condition of a broad range of equipment types in hazardous work areas.Both versions comply with the rigorous international safety standards established by Factory Mutual (FM), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and the European (ATEX) standard, extending the use of these tools for assessing the condition of rotating machinery in sensitive plant environments.
The safety-certified versions of the CSI 2130 retain all functions of the machinery health analyzers commonly operating in other areas.They are capable of gathering large amounts of data and reducing it into accurate diagnostics and actionable information. The collected data are uploaded for analysis and trending to the AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager software, a component of Emerson’s PlantWeb digital plant architecture. The health of critically important rotating equipment in hazardous areas can now be addressed through:
Vibration data collection (single or dual-channel)
Vibration analysis (single and dual-channel)
Advanced cross-channel vibration analysis
Cascade analysis for machine startup or coast-down (single or dual-channel)
Advanced transient analysis (single or dual-channel).
Dynamic balancing and laser shaft alignment, which can also be done in hazardous areas using the new versions of the CSI 2130, typically require hot-work permits for hazardous environments.
Originally released as a high-function, dual-channel data collector and analyzer, the CSI 2130 is now available as a lower-cost single-channel data collector and as a single or dual-channel stand-alone vibration analyzer.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
