Temperature sensors include a built-in conduit adapter and grease-fitting (zerk) tap
Temperature sensors combine a sensor, signal conditioner and loop-powered 4-20mA transmitter into a rugged and compact package.
FM-approved temperature sensors from Electro-Sensors, now include a built-in conduit adapter and grease-fitting (zerk) tap. TT420-LT (Liquid Tight) temperature sensors combine a sensor, signal conditioner, and loop-powered 4-20 mA transmitter into a rugged and compact package. With the addition of an integrated conduit fitting, the 1/2-in. TT420Z-LT and TT420S-LT models are now compatible with a wider variety of sensing applications. Plus, all models arrive ready to use, with no user calibration required.
All TT420-LT models are compatible with standard 2-wire 4-20 mA current loops and analog inputs. Models vary only in their measurement probes and fittings, which are optimized for applications including grain handling facility shaft bearing (TT420Z-LT) and belt rub-block (TT420S-LT) temperature measurement. All models feature an integrated fitting for 1/2-in. flexible liquid-tight conduit and are FM approved as dust ignition-proof for use in Class II and III, Ev. 1 and 2, Group E, F, G ratings, when installed using Class II rated (1/2 in.) flexible liquid-tight conduit.
The TT420Z-LT is compatible with 1/8-, 1/4-, and 1/2-in. NPT grease fitting zerk taps. The TT420S-LT additionally screws into a brass rub-block with a 3/8-16 tap and is available with the option of a lug mount adapter, supporting a wide variety of mounting possibilities.
Applications include conveyors, bucket elevators, motors, gearboxes, pumps, turbines, fans, and more.

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.
