E-Mon’s Interval Data Recorder (IDR) is designed for collecting kilowatt-hour and demand data from 8 or 16 connected meters at user-selectable 15-, 30-, or 60-min intervals. A four-line LCD shows real-time data, while onboard memory stores up to 72 days of 15-min interval data accessible via modem, Ethernet, Modbus, BACnet, LonWorks TP, or MV-90 for automatic meter reading, energy management integration, billing, and more. Available in two models, the 8-m (IDR-8) and the 16-m (IDR-16) both offer simultaneous dual-protocol communications for integration with multiple BAS, billing packages, or measurement and verification reporting.
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.
