RTD sensors available
RTDs are designed for precision, repeatability and have a high signal-to-noise ratio.
Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) sensors are designed for a wide variety of process and industrial applications. Difficult application problems can be solved and solutions can be tailored to meet specific application requirements.
The RTD sensors are designed to ensure precise and repeatable measurements as well as meet environmental requirements for each application. A high signal-to-noise output increases the accuracy of data transmission and permits greater distances between the sensor and the measuring equipment. The sensors can be configured to meet specific application needs with options including element type, lead wire configuration, termination style, sheath materials, lengths and diameters, process connection heads, transmitters, thermowells, spring loading, flanges and surface mount packages.
Predictable resistance at a given temperature can be produced. Resistance wire RTDs have a positive coefficient by increasing resistance when the temperature increases. These sensors work in a variety of industries including processing, food equipment, plastics processing, petrochemical processing, microelectronics, and air, gas and liquid temperature measurement.

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.
