Ultrasonic sensor series works independent of color, surface finish
Balluff’s ultrasonic sensors are designed for distance measurement and operate independently of color and surface finish and are useful for critical applications.
Balluff’s ultrasonic sensors are designed for distance measurement or position detection of granules, fluids and powders. They measure fill levels, heights, and sag without making contact as well as count and monitor the presence of objects. They operate independently of color and surface finish and are not affected by transparent objects that generate strong reflections, making them useful for critical applications.
Balluff ultrasonic sensors are available in a variety of form factors and output types. and have detection ranges that extend from 20 mm to 8 m.
Each ultrasonic series is available as a switching or analog version. All analog versions are available with voltage or current output (0-10 V or 4-20 mA). The M30 version includes variants with two switching outputs (one switching and one analog output, or two switching outputs and one analog output) so that one sensor can adopt the function of a second sensor.

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.
