Machine-mountable remote display
The Machine-Mountable Remote Display features industrious metal housing to shield the display from electrical noise, while its cabled connector provides a secure, dependable connection—further enhancing the device’s electrical noise immunity.
The Machine-Mountable Remote Display enables users to view the iVu sensor image remotely and serves as a constant monitoring and user-programming interface, without interference from electrical noise. The rugged, noise immune, stationary remote display features an 89-mm (3.5-in), diagonal, color LCD flat-panel touch screen display and an exceptionally wide viewing angle—60 degrees left and 60 degrees right; 50 degrees up, and 55 degrees down. Two LEDs on the Remote Display provide feedback of the remote sensor operation—one for Power/Error, and the other indicating inspection Pass/Fail. It is available in five cordset lengths, ordered separately; mounting brackets and stylus is included with the cordset kit.
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.
