HVLS fan control
The touch-screen Fan-Commander control station controls the operation of up to 18 High Volume/Low Speed (HVLS) Revolution Fan or Revolution SP Fan models. With the Fan-Commander, users can optimize the year-round performance of HVLS fans throughout a single facility, maximizing the energy savings and comfort they deliver. During winter, the correct fan speed produces even temperatures from floor to ceiling for proven energy savings and increased employee comfort. An automatic and accurately controlled fan speed in summer results in a cool breeze when it’s needed most. It also prevents unauthorized employees from adjusting fan speeds.
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.
