Multimeters for DC, temperature readings
The MM5000 and MM6000 are True RMS professional meters that provide more accurate DC readings as well as temperature and frequency settings for HVAC use
The MM5000 and MM6000 are True RMS professional meters that provide more accurate DC readings of ±0.3% and ±0.2% respectively. They include a low impedance setting to eliminate ghost voltages as well as a µA setting for checking flame sensors. The meters also have a large back lit display and analog bar graph to measure fast moving readings. Both meters are double insulated, have a rubber molding for drop protection, and are CAT IV 600V rated. The MM6000 also has temperature and frequency settings for HVAC use and a 6000-count display. MM5000N and MM6000N, which are NIST certified, are also available.
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.
