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
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.
