Linearized AlphaProx sensors detect metallic objects at ranges of up to 16 millimeters and detect changes in position, distance, thickness, weight or pressure.
Linearized AlphaProx sensors detect metallic objects at ranges of up to 16 millimeters and detect changes in position, distance, thickness, weight or pressure. The sensors feature a teach-in function that allows the user to adjust the usable measuring range and select the direction of the output slope. The sensor’s resolution of 10 microns allows them to switch between analog and digital output, and their IP67-rated chromium-steel housing withstands exposure to contaminants such as water, oil, dirt, non-metallic particles, dust and fibers.

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.
