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
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.
