Linear inductive sensors are available in five ranges, 14 mm to 120 mm
Pepperl+Fuchs' PMI40-F90-U-V15 and PMI40-F90-I-V15 linear inductive sensors are designed for vertical valve measurements and delivers accurate linear position regardless of sensing range.
Pepperl+Fuchs' PMI40-F90-U-V15 and PMI40-F90-I-V15 linear inductive sensors offer a 40 mm distance measurement that is ideal for vertical valve measurements. With these models, the PMI linear inductive sensors are now available with linear ranges of 14 mm, 40 mm, 80 mm, 104 mm and 120 mm to satisfy a wide range of sensing requirements.
The optimal distance from PMI40 to the standard sensor target (BT-F90-W) is 2 mm, but an available sensing range of 0.5 to 3 mm delivers accurate linear position regardless of the sensing range. The 40 mm linear distance delivers 33 um resolution. The shorter housing of the PMI40 enables it to be applied where models with longer housings are unsuitable.

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.
