Thermal imaging cameras find wasted energy
The OSXL-E thermal imaging camera series by Omega is designed for discovering missing insulation, faulty HVAC systems, and other issues that waste energy.
Omega’s OSXL-E thermal imaging cameras feature on-board visual camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, scalable P-i-P (Picture in Picture), thermal fusion and a bright LED light. This CE compliant product stores more than 1000 JPEG images which is shown with the digital camera’s 3.1 mega pixel resolution. The OSXL-E series has a long battery life of over 4 hrs. The OSXL-E is ideal for discovering missing insulation, faulty HVAC systems, and other issues that waste energy and money. It is also useful for finding hidden problems quickly, making timely repairs, preventing unscheduled shutdowns, and improving plant safety by discovering overheated bearings, linkages, and other components before they can interrupt your operations or create safety hazards.

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.
