This unique close-coupled cooling approach is floor-mounted and features a highly efficient pumped refrigerant row-based system that leverages thermal containment and smart controls to fully manage the cooling of the data center. The InRow RA is equipped with active response controls for monitoring and active adjustment of cooling capacity that ensures proper temperatures within the server environment are consistently maintained.
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.
