Wireless ac/dc clamp meter
This true RMS ac/dc clamp meter offers wireless linking technology and a built in infrared thermometer. The meter transmits electrical readings to FLIR infrared cameras via Bluetooth.
The EX845 is a 1000 A ac/dc CAT IV clamp meter withMETERLiNK technology and a built in infrared thermometer. METERLiNK wirelesslyconnects FLIR infrared cameras to Extech meters via Bluetooth to accelerate andsimplify inspections. During infrared inspections of electrical components,users can transmit key electrical readings such as current or voltage from theExtech EX845 clamp meter directly to a FLIR infrared camera. METERLiNKinstantly imprints the electrical readings onto a related infrared image toensure accurate, coordinated documentation for PdM inspection reports.
The EX845 clamp meter features true RMS meter functions
including ac/dc current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, infrared
and contact temperature, diode-test and continuity check. The peak hold
function captures inrush currents and transients. The bright 4-digit,
4,000-count backlit display is complemented by several one-button functions
including data hold, min/max and selectable auto- or manual-ranging. The large 1.7-inch
jaw opening handles conductors up to 750 MCM or multiple conductors such as two
500 MCM cables. For quick, point-and-shoot temperature readings, the
non-contact IR thermometer with laser pointer is useful for fast hot-spot
The meter has a CAT IV-600 V, CAT III-1000 V overvoltage
safety rating and is CE and ETL approved. It comes with an 8-piece professional
test lead set, 9 V battery, Type K thermocouple probe and a belt holster. NIST
certification is available.

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.
