Omega’s Omegascope Wireless Handheld Infrared Thermometer OS530E Series provides “unmatched performance at an affordable price of $295 for basic unit,” Omega Engineering says, and the product’s built-in wireless measurement makes it “the first of its kind.” The portable and rugged OS530E series can be used in many non-contact temperature measurement applications. The built-in patented laser sighting is switchable between laser dot and circle patterns, with the laser beam flashing or continuous. It measures temperature ranges from -23 to 871°C (-10 to 1,600°F), offering different optical fields of view from close focus to long range. Features include adjustable emissivity, backlit LCD display, high and low audible and visual alarms, analog output, and PC interface, built-in distance measurement (optional), thermocouple input, and data storage. The LCD provides dual digital display of both current and max, min, differential or average temperatures in either degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit simultaneously. Optional accessories are USB wireless receiver, tripod mount, thermocouple surface probes, universal 9 V adapter. The RS-232 output models include free data logging software. Industries targeted include chemical and automotive industries.

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.
