Stainless steel pressure transducer for industrial applications, engine test stands
Omega Engineering’s PXM309 Metric series transducers report a static accuracy of 0.25% and 1% total error band over a range of -20 to 85 C.
The PXM309 Metric series reportedly has an exceptional static accuracy of 0.25% and a 1% total error band (TEB) over a compensated range of -20 to 85 C (on ranges of 1 to 700 bar). Ranges from 70 mbar to 3.5 bar are also available with a slightly larger TEB. All units are supplied with a 5-point NIST traceable calibration certificate. The all stainless steel construction and solid state reliability make these transducers suitable for most industrial applications as well as engine test stands. The PXM309 Series transducers are sealed to an IP65 environmental rating and are available with 3 electrical terminations, a 2 m cable with flying leads, a mini-DIN connector or a 4-pin M12 connector. Two outputs are available, either 0-10 Vdc or 4-20 mA. The pressure connection is a standard G ¼ male metric fitting.

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.
