2010 POY Finalists: Lighting
Plant Engineering's 2010 Product of the Year finalists featured in the Lighting category.
Juno Lighting Group’s next generation of premium grade Indy Designer Series LED Luminaires are designed with a focus on energy savings and enduring beauty, and include the entire offering of Indy Round LED Downlights, Indy Square LED Downlights and Indy Cylinder LED Downlights. These luminaries each include higher lumen packages to meet the needs of lighting specifiers in commercial applications requiring up to 42-watt CFL equivalency for higher ceilings and greater light intensity. All units are dimmable utilizing a universal 120V-277V driver, and include emergency battery back-up options. Utilizing remote phosphor technology, the high-output LED light engine provides high efficiency and color stability.
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.
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
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.
