Minneapolis, MN – Honeywell HG1171 Series 6DF IMU sensors Honeywell
The Series uses MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Machined Sensors) technology, already used in aerospace applications for navigation and control, where users need enhanced performance in sensing rotation rate and acceleration. The Honeywell HG1171 Series of discrete sensors features enhanced fault monitoring and reporting to verify correct operation.
Integration of the microcontroller, sensors, and communication interfaces permits software customization, which can save development time and money. Features of the
Honeywell HG1171 Series 6DF IMU sensorsprovide key data for automated steering, stability, and vehicle controls in a number of potential agricultural, construction, and material handling equipment applications. They enhance safety, stability, productivity, and operational capabilities of heavy-duty vehicle equipment, company says.
sensors include a high-speed CANbus, enhanced temperature performance, low noise, and high resolution, packaged in a tough metal housing that is suitable for most harsh environments.

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.
