Cable entry system
The Roxtec BG product family is a cable entry system.
The Roxtec BG product family is a cable entry system designed to seal large and small quantities of metal clad or armored cables using minimal space. At the same time, it provides electrical safety and protection to people and equipment. The BG cable entry system provides additional protection against weather, blasts, rodents, and fire. Adaptability to cables of different sizes with removable layers allows users to specify and design cable entries before and after final cable schedules are complete. If the cable schedule changes in the field, the installer simply adjusts the modules for a perfect fit. For wall, floor, and bulkhead cable penetrations, the BG system is fire-rated as well as gas- and watertight. It also meets all major electrical schemes with bonding and grounding for low- to high-voltage applications. It is also certified for hazardous locations and suitable for lightning protection.
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.
