11/15/2009


Cypress Envirosystems, a subsidiary ofCypress Semiconductor Corp., and Invensys Operations Management, have formed astrategic technology alliance around the interoperability between CypressEnvirosystems' wireless monitoring and control solutions and Wonderwaresoftware, including its new CorporateEnergy Management application.

CypressEnvirosystems' develops technologies designed to enable older buildings andmanufacturing sites to adopt the latest automation technologies at anaffordable cost, and with minimal disruption to existing occupants, processes,and staff. The company's snap-on products install in minutes andtypically provide payback within 12 months. ( Reada Control Engineering report onCypress Environmental products ). The alliance with Invensys includes CypressEnvirosystems' Wireless Gauge Reader, the Wireless Steam Trap Monitor, the WirelessTransducer Reader, and the Wireless Pneumatic Thermostat.

"The first step in any plant energy efficiency initiative is to establish a baseline from which to measure improvement," said Harry Sim, CEO of Cypress Environmental. "That'swhere we fit in--to transfer the analog data that still exists in a plant into digital form. Our devices are the eyes and ears at the plant level for systems like Wonderware's Corporate Energy Management application."

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.
