Long-range laser sensor
BOD 63M laser time-of-flight sensor performs precise detection and measurement of a wide range of objects, stationary or moving, that are up to 6 meters (around 19 ft) long or up to that distance away.
BOD 63M laser time-of-flight sensor performs precise detection and measurement of a wide range of objects, stationary or moving, that are up to 6 meters (around 19 ft) long or up to that distance away. Sensor is intended for measuring large objects, hopper levels, or material handled in automated warehouses and transelevators. Applications include distance measurement and control of moving objects such as pallets, hot steel that could damage a sensor, parts that change color or have reflective surfaces, or targets that move at angles unfavorable to a light beam. Models are available with one PNP or NPN output, an alarm output, and one 0-10 V dc or 4-20 mA analog output.

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.
