Courtesy: FlukeFluke introduces five new infrared cameras with a broad range of powerful capabilities that easy to use for troubleshooting and diagnostic routines.

Capabilities include:

  • It has an automatic focus with a manual focus option for close-ups and is easy to take sharply focused, accurate images. 
  • The industry’s only point-and-shoot IR-Fusion infrared camera. Fluke patented-technology blends digital and infrared images into a single image to precisely document problem areas.
  • It weighs only 1.63 lbs and is designed to sit perfectly in the hand, and all buttons are within gloved-thumb reach. Light enough to aim either vertically or horizontally and to use for long stretches without tiring out your hand.
  • Fluke thermal imagers are built to be put to work – what other infrared camera is tough enough to survive drops up to 6.5 ft and go right back on the job?
  • Record focus-free video in visible light and infrared with full IR-Fusion capabilities. Monitor processes over time, troubleshoot frame-by-frame, and create infrared video reports. 
  • Capture up to three digital photos per thermal image file and keep an exact record of equipment models, nameplates and other useful information.
  • Make sure you and others know the location of the problem by saving the compass reading with the thermal image.
  • IR analysis and reporting software Professional suite of analysis and reporting tools for viewing, annotating and editing infrared images. Always included, with unlimited licenses and free lifetime upgrades.

There are five models available and all of them are uniquely valuable to users out in the field.

  • Ti110 and Ti125 for plant technicians, HVAC/R professionals and electricians who need to maintain and inspect electrical and mechanical equipment and components.
  • TiR110 and TiR125 for building inspection and energy audit professionals evaluating and reporting insulation problems, air leakage, moisture issues, or construction defects.
  • Ti110, Ti110, Ti125, TiR110, and TiR125 infrared cameras include IR-OptiFlex focus system, IR-PhotoNotes annotation system, focus-free video, IR-Fusion technology, and SmartView.
  • Ti100 for general applications — the same ruggedness and ease-of use for value conscious professionals. 

These infrared cameras come with ac power adapter, lithium ion smart battery (Ti125 and TiR125 include two each; others one each), USB cable for direct to PC image download, SD memory card, hard carrying case, soft transport bag, adjustable hand strap (left- or right-handed use), and manual (5 printed, 18 electronic). Ti125 and TiR125 models also include a two-bay charging base, a multi-function USB memory card reader and a separate, longer USB cable for streaming video use.

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.
