POY Finalist: Test leads
Finalist in Maintenance Tools and Equipment in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The TL175 Test Leads feature a manually adjustable test tip guard for use in different measurement environments. By twisting the test lead, the user can change the exposed probe tip length from 4/25 in to ¾ in.
The TL175 Test Leads are safety rated for CAT III 1,000 V; CAT IV 600 V; and CAT II 1,000 V use. Each test lead is covered by two layers of silicone insulation that resists melting if it comes in contact with hot surfaces and remains flexible in cold situations.
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.
