Photoelectric sensor series
The OPT photoelectric sensor series feature high-resolution CMOS line array technology and Class 1 or Class 2 laser options
The OPT series of short and long range distance photoelectric sensors are available with either Class 1 or Class 2 laser options and are constructed with rectangular plastic housings and fitted with an M12 quick-disconnect. OPT short-range diffuse distance sensors utilize high-resolution CMOS line array technology, eliminating material, color and brightness-related measurement differences. Analog and switch output models are available with sensing ranges from 30 to 660mm, at up to 1,500 scans per second. Diffuse styles have a sensing range up to 10 meters; retro-reflective styles sense up to 100 meters. Analog and switch output models are 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.
