Power quality analyzers
The Fluke 430 Series II three-phase power quality and energy analyzers are handheld tools that measure electrical power consumption, quantify wasted energy, and improve the performance and lifespan of electromechanical equipment.
The Fluke 430 Series II three-phase power quality and energy analyzers are handheld tools that measure electrical power consumption, quantify wasted energy, and improve the performance and lifespan of electromechanical equipment. Three measurement functions are combined with hardware, software, and firmware improvements. The Unified Power function provides the ability to calculate the monetary cost of the wasted energy and to automatically quantify the energy wasted by harmonics and unbalance. The Inverter Efficiency function simultaneously measures the input and output power inverters. The 435 model includes PowerWave, a “fast capture” system that displays waveforms, half-cycle RMS voltage, and current values to measure interaction during switching operations. These analyzers have up to 32 GB memory, a swappable SD memory card, and USB connectivity.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
