The DataSafe 16-V battery cabinets from EnerSys have earned seismic certification by OSHPD.
EnerSys has earned a special seismic certification by the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) in California, for its DataSafe 16-V battery cabinets. The DataSafe 16-V battery cabinets were certified in accordance with ASCE 7-05 Chapter 13 and meet the seismic regulations for the design of equipment and nonstructural components that help protect operations. The cabinets were approved in the first round of the OSHPD testing process at the ISO/TEC 17025-accredited Environmental Testing Lab in Dallas. OSHPD requires multiple units to be tested on a seismic shake table, which is used to test the resistance of structures to seismic shaking and ground motion.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
