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.

Outdoor LED luminaries

The high-performance AccuLite Finia Series Outdoor LED Luminaries are versatile and energy-efficient luminaries that can be pole-mounted, wall-mounted, or mounted as floodlights in commercial applications. Each series includes a high-performance configuration with maximum fixture efficacy as well as a more economical version for the budget-conscious project. The luminaries are each constructed of a heavy wall die-cast aluminum body, back box, and frame that delivers a sturdy, durable fixture and a tempered glass lens that completely seals and protects the LED compartment.

LED step lights

The energy-efficient Mini LED Step Lights for indoor or outdoor wall-mount applications are designed for a range of residential, commercial, and theatrical applications. Environmentally friendly and energy-efficient, the step lights do not contain any lead, mercury, or harmful ultraviolet or infrared wavelengths. The IC-rated step lights consume merely 2.6 W and are available with four distinct optics that each provide a unique light distribution. When used with qualified 120 V electronic low-voltage dimmers, the LED Driver has a 20% to 100% dimming range and can accommodate an input voltage of 120 Vac at 60 Hz.

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 LG2 may be mounted up to 1,000 ft away from indoor or outdoor connected loads.

Dual-Lite


LED luminaires

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. The fixture features high-brightness LEDs to provide superior optical performance while reducing energy consumption and lowering maintenance costs. The Cimarron LED is available in 24 optical configurations in 30, 60, or 90 light engines to accommodate mounting heights from 12 ft and above. Additional features include a solid die-cast housing with vertical heat dissipating fins, an upswept or straight die-cast arm attached to the fixture, automatic thermal protection, and bi-level or continuous dimming energy control options.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
