CO Detector Replacement
The CO-PLATE from System Sensor is designed to cover the footprint of the previously installed detector.
With the first round of system-connected carbon monoxide (CO) detectors reaching their end of life, there’s a big opportunity for dealers and installers to increase their revenue streams through CO detector replacements. System Sensor has launched a new CO-PLATE Carbon Monoxide Detector Plate to coincide with this opportunity. The CO-PLATE is an upgrade to the first system-connected CO detectors that is designed to cover the footprint of the previously installed detector and can be mounted in seconds for a clean, low-profile finish ideal for commercial applications. This seamless installation saves time and money.
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.
