Advanced metering system
Cooper Controls' energy monitoring solution with its Venergy Advanced Metering System.
Cooper Controls is offering an energy monitoring solution with its Venergy Advanced Metering System. The comprehensive solution from provides complete energy monitoring for all electric and nonelectrical gas, among others. The solution enables schools, commercial and government facilities, and other organizations to save energy and money; demonstrate and drive energy-usage behavior; ensure optimal building performance; and meet LEED and other energy goals. The Venergy system uses revenue-grade Accu-CT high-accuracy split-core current transformers (CTs) to provide the current inputs to the Cooper Controls Advanced Power Meter (APM) multifunction networked energy meter. The APM then captures power consumption data including true RMS power, energy, and demand metering. The line-powered metering device, which may be installed easily in a load center or junction box, enables individual or multi-phase measurement of voltage, current, power factor, reactive power/energy, and line frequency without any additional power supply required.

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.
