Cypress Envirosystems and Invensys form alliance to deliver energy-efficient automated control
Cypress Envirosystems' wireless control and monitoring solutions are compatible with Wonderware applications.
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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
