XUM Optimum Miniature Photoelectric Sensor from Schneider Electric
Schneider Electric XUM Optimum Miniature Photoelectric Sensor has same familiar dimensions as other sensors, resists interference, and has long sensing distances.
Schneider Electric XUM Optimum Miniature Photoelectric Sensor has same familiar dimensions as other sensors, resists interference, and has long sensing distances. They offer up to 5 m (16.4 ft) in polarized retroreflective mode, 15 m (49.2 ft) in thru-beam mode, and 0.77 m (2.5 ft) in diffuse mode. Environmentally, the XUM series can withstand up to 40,000 lux natural light/10,000 lux incandescent light. PBT plastic design is rated at IP67. Stainless steel designs have IP67, IP69K and IP67G ratings, which cover high pressure water jet and cutting oil environments. Schneider Electric Osiris photoelectric sensors feature a patented "multimode" technology that allows one product to perform functions found in as many as five modes of sensors. This flexibility makes selection and inventory management simple with only one-tenth the amount of part numbers to select from and stock.

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.
