Two-lamp design series

The Metalux OpticaHP Series features a high-efficiency two-lamp design that can save energy costs. The series includes luminaires and two OpticaHP Retrofit Kits designed for installation into parabolic fixtures. Available with 28W or 32W lamp options, precision engineering combines a highly reflective matte white finish with glare reducing faceted steel cross blades to create a soft, even distribution while delivering optimum light levels. The OpticaHP is now available with White Optics material that increases fixture efficiency to over 92%. This allows for improved energy savings by allowing for use of energy-saving lamps or lower ballast factors in the system.

Outdoor luminaire

The McGraw-Edison Ventus outdoor LED area luminaire offers optical performance and versatility with superior light quality. Incorporating Cooper Lighting’s modular LightBAR technology and AccuLED Optics system, the LED luminaires’ unique application-specific design allows lumen and energy output to be customized to fulfill the exact needs of the outdoor space—eliminating wasted energy, obtrusive spill light and over-lighting of spaces. In both performance and construction, the Ventus LED Area Luminaire is optimized to deliver uniform and energy-conscious illumination to parking lots, building areas, roadways, and security lighting application, and can provide up to 75% in energy savings over traditional High Intensity Discharge outdoor sources.

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.
