POY Finalist: Digital monitor
Finalist in Maintenance Tools and Equipment in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The rugged SeeSnake CS-10 digital monitor’s one-touch feature enables it to record still images and video. The monitor features video and image playback and the auto-log recording method, which compresses files to help save memory on the USB thumb drive, where digital inspections are stored.
The monitor also features SeeSnake HQ software, a program that allows images and video to be imported and stored on a computer for easy media sharing. The 12.1-in. monitor with enhanced daylight readability provides professionals with the ability to clearly view and diagnose line blockages via high-performance cameras.
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.
