Volumetric recessed lighting

Lihonia Lighting’s RTLED is a volumetric recessed lighting fixture with a 50,000-hr system life. It can deliver ambient white light throughout a space or directional lighting. It has a color rendering index of 80-plus, 3500 K color temperature, and full range dimming with 0 to 10 Vdc control. The luminaire adjusts itself to avoid overlighting, tracks its own operating hours, and provides a visual indicator when it reaches the end of its service life. The luminaires are made with recyclable materials, recycled steel, and no mercury or lead. These compact lighting fixtures are powered by Samsung LED light engines and are only 3 1/8-in. deep.

Lighting control system

WattStopper’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) networked system enables remote management of lighting controls throughout a floor, a building, or an entire campus. DLM local networks can include intelligent room controllers, occupancy sensors, personal controls, daylighting sensors, and interfaces. Each local network can be equipped with a BACnet-compatible network bridge for remote control by a BAS or a browser-based user interface on a PC, PDA, or a smartphone. The remote control can change sensor settings and system parameters, establish normal and after-hours schedules, and monitor power consumption of lighting and plug loads in real time.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. 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.
