Legrand/Pass & Seymour's Harmony CFL/LED dimmer.
Legrand/Pass & Seymour has announced the Harmony CFL/LED dimmer. The dimming device is flexible and simple to use and is specially designed to work with dimmable CFL/LED bulbs. It is energy efficient and enhances both the bulb life and energy savings for two of the fastest growing light sources. The dimmer can be used in waiting rooms, kitchens, and conference rooms. It can operate with single a pole and three-way circuit, has a 450-W rating, and requires no derating in multi-gang applications. Its adjustment dial allows users to adjust the bottom of the dimming range for a wide range of CFL and LED bulbs. It is easy to operate and combines an on/off decorator switch with a separate slider for dimming control. Each unit also has a green LED that glows, making it easy to find in the dark when switched off.

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.
