Emerson Network Power has introduced the NetSure ITM UPS system, an integrated DC UPS system designed for the data center market. The NetSure ITM is a scalable and efficient 48 V DC output power system that includes battery backup and branch distribution for robust power protection in a compact footprint.
The NetSure ITM’s row-based design preserves the efficiency and reliability benefits of DC power, while minimizing the amount of floor space and copper distribution required. This modular approach allows organizations to minimize their initial investment and avoid stranded power by adding expansion DC UPS modules as power needs increase.
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.
