LED luminaire

The Invue Vision Flood Small LED Luminaire combines the energy savings of LED solutions with the precise optical control of HID floodlighting luminaires in a traditional roundback form. When used as a replacement solution for traditional HID floodlights, the luminaire creates energy-savings opportunities in excess of 50%. The fixture features bi-level switching or entire fixture dimming options in late night and early morning hours. With seven unique distributions, from a 10-deg tight spot to an 80-deg by 98-deg vertical floor, the fixture is optimized to meet the demanding specifications of floodlighting applications with standard 4,000 K correlated color temperature.

Lighting fixtures

The SXPJ series of lighting fixtures offers a copper-free cast aluminum housing suitable for use in offshore rigs, land drilling rigs, oil and gas production, industrial manufacturing, wastewater treatment plants, or other areas where hazardous gases, dust, and fibers are present. They are also rated for marine and heavy hose-down environments where salt spray and corrosive chemicals may be a factor. The wireless electromechanical connection allows for quick, safe installation and maintenance. The lighting fixtures are available with 100 W LED or CFL lamping in multiple wattages and external stainless steel hardware.

Rig-A-Lite Industrial Lighting


Interruptible inverter

The LiteGear inverter is designed to provide a maximum of 250 VA of emergency power to indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures for up to 90 minutes. The LG2 interruptible inverter easily handles larger emergency lighting load requirements in indoor office areas and long outdoor walkways, including LED, incandescent, linear fluorescent, and compact fluorescent lamps. The heavy-duty steel enclosure features a white powder coat finish and is designed for indoor surface wall-mounting installation.

The high-efficiency, low-maintenance LED Vaportite luminaires are designed for maximum versatility and are available in multiple mounting configurations including pendant, ceiling, wall outlet, and stanchion mount. The fixtures deliver high-quality, superior light over incandescent luminaires traditionally used in applications such as manufacturing plants; chemical and petrochemical processing facilities; sewage treatment plants; offshore and dockside installations; and agricultural, commercial, industrial, mining, and marine facilities. Additional features include an LED life of up to 50,000 hours, a 120 V power supply, and crisp white 5,000 K color.

Hubbell Inc.


Area site lighting luminaire

The Cimarron LED area site lighting luminaire is designed to deliver energy efficiency, safety, and security.

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.
