Prevent lamp extinction and subsequent need for re-strike in metal halide lighting systems with the Artic ARC Keeper HID backup ballasts from Bodine.
Prevent lamp extinction and subsequent need for re-strike in metal halide lighting systems with the Artic ARC Keeper HID backup ballasts from Bodine. Designed for cold, damp installations, such as parking garages, the ballasts' ambient temperatures range from -40 to 131 F. The units sense minor line disturbances and maintain the lamp arc for up to 2 minutes, which provides enough time for a disturbance to pass or for a generator to begin to provide power to the lamp. The units allow metal halides to serve as emergency lighting.

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.
