Dytran Instruments, Inc. has released a new industrial accelerometer, the Model 3213M6. This rugged, triaxial accelerometer uses pizeoceramic shear technology coupled with 2-wire internal IEPE electronics. Although not limited to this application, the model 3213M6 was designed specifically for industrial vibration monitoring.
The unit mounts with a centrally located thru 10-32 captive mounting screw. It weighs 59 grams and is packaged in a rugged, anodized aluminum housing. Featuring a single 4-pin Brad Harrison connector and 360° cable orientation, the 3213M6 also operates at a high sensitivity (100 mV/g). Model 3213M6 is hermetically sealed and electrically isolated, making it an ideal unit for industrial monitoring applications. Additional applications include walk-about data collection and general purpose triaxial vibration measurements.

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.
