Critical power management system for mission critical facilities
Emerson Network Power has released a critical power management system.
Emerson Network Power debuts its Critical Power Management System (CPMS) to the on-site power industry. A CPMS provides unparalleled monitoring and control of all critical systems within a hospital, data center, telecommunications site, or other mission critical facility or campus. CPMS monitors and controls transfer switches, paralleling control switchgear, gensets, circuit breakers, power distribution, and other gear so it can intelligently interact with a facility building management system. Also, it enables unlimited customization of monitoring and control throughout a facility or campus through the use of ASCO PowerQuest.
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.
