Pressure gage includes data logger function
Latest Jofra industrial pressure indicator combines analog and digital capabilities for high performance and versatility.
The Jofra IPI Mk II, the latest pressure indicator in the Ametek test & calibration instruments family, combines the ease of an analog gage with the accuracy and easy-to-read display of a digital calibrator. Available in 10 different pressure ranges from 1 bar (15 psi) to 700 bar (10,000 psi), there is a unit that is appropriate for any industrial need. Accurate, portable, and versatile, the IPI Mk. II is lightweight and portable with full temperature compensation, long battery life, and a large display for easy visibility.
With accuracy of ±0.05% FS, it rivals high-end pressure calibrators, and the unit is temperature compensated for workshop use or in-process applications. When equipped with IPILOG data logging software, users have a high-performance solution for pressure data logging applications. Whether data from one IPI or many needs to be logged, IPILOG is an easy-to-use and is a low-cost application that can handle all types of requirements.
The IPI Mk. II is ATEX and CSA certified for use in potentially explosive environments such as oil refineries, chemical plants, and offshore platforms, where flammable gases are used or stored. Available as a stand-alone indicator or in one of six test-ready systems equipped to meet any pressure measuring or testing needs, when bought as a system, the IPI is delivered ready-to-use, with accessories and carrying case.

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.
