Energy management bypass for VFDs
The P-Series of variable frequency drives by Cerus have an energy management bypass option for HVAC systems.
Cerus Industrial Inc. has enhanced its P-Series line of variable frequency drives (VFDs) with an energy management bypass (EMB) option. The option assures uninterruptible operation of customers’ HVAC systems, even if the drive is taken out of the loop, including reprogramming or maintenance operations. With integrated real-time ANSI grade power metering and BACnet communications, the P-Series accurately measures consumption in both VFD and bypass mode to +/-1%. The P-Series also provides all the advanced motor protection in bypass mode that would typically only be available through the VFD. With integrated metering and programmable option-setting via an external keypad, the series offers a lower cost and safer-to-use solution to the measurement and verification requirements for establishing U.S. Green Building Council LEED certification. Other bypass solutions require external meters and modifications to be made by opening the panel, exposing high-voltage connectors.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
