Three-phase power analyzer
Engineers can use Fluke's power analyzer to capture rapid voltage changes, interruptions, and energy consumption data for commercial buildings and equipment.
Fluke Corp. introduces its 434/PWR three-phase power analyzer, which assists engineers in finding energy waste in commercial and factory buildings and equipment. Field service engineers and maintenance technicians can use this instrument to conduct energy consumption studies and electrical load analysis, and to perform power quality logging and analysis according to EN 50160. Fluke’s 434/PWR is a complete three-phase troubleshooting tool that measures virtually every power system parameter: voltage, current, frequency, power, energy consumption, cost for power factor, unbalance, and harmonics and interharmonics. This three-phase power analyzer captures events like dips and swells, interruptions, and rapid voltage changes, based upon half-cycle rms values. The 434 Series meets the stringent 600 V CAT IV, 1000 V CAT III safety standard required for measurements at service entrance.

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.
