A family of digital addressable controllable fluorescent lamp ballasts has been expanded to include a new one-lamp model for T5 fluorescent applications as well as one- and two-lamp models to support T8 fluorescent applications in a variety of professional settings.
The ROVR family of digital addressable controllable fluorescent lamp ballasts has been expanded to include a new one-lamp model for T5 fluorescent applications as well as one- and two-lamp models to support T8 fluorescent applications in a variety of professional settings. The ballasts enable two-way communications with individual lighting fixtures and allow users to set up any fluorescent lighting configuration they desire with numerous distinct performance settings. The DALI protocol enables control systems to carry on two-way communications directly with individual lighting fixtures equipped with DALI-compliant ballasts. The ballasts feature full-range continuous dimming from 100% to 3% (down to 1% in the T5HO models), and operation directly from the DALI control signal to promote sustainable design and support green practices such as daylight harvesting.

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.
