POY Finalist: Thermal imagers
Finalist in Maintenance Tools and Equipment in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The P3 Series of thermal imagers include the Ti32 and TiR32 models, plus the Ti27 and Ti29 models for industrial, electrical, mechanical, and process applications; and TiR27 and TiR29 models for building inspection, energy audit, weatherization, and building maintenance applications.
All models are specifically designed to work in even the harshest environments and provide superior image quality with one-handed easy-to-use interfaces. The imagers measure temperature from -20 C to 600 C and feature a high-temperature color alarm on the industrial models and low-temperature or dewpoint color alarm on the building models.
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.
