Power Xpert 200E gateway collects energy usage data from meters, enabling users to benchmark energy usage, set energy management goals, determine the effectiveness of energy management initiatives and reduce energy costs. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Power Xpert 200E gateway collects energy usage data from meters, enabling customers to benchmark energy usage, set energy management goals, determine the effectiveness of energy management initiatives and reduce energy costs. The Power Xpert 200E gateway report on energy usage at the device, building and campus levels, indicating energy usage trends to enable customers to maximize energy efficiency. 

 

Power Xpert 200E gateways provide an economical solution for measuring and improving building energy efficiency - allowing customers to allocate energy costs, reduce peak demand surcharges and power factor penalties. Enabling customers to measure and verify energy usage, the Power Xpert 200E gateway acquires data that can be instrumental in helping existing and new buildings take advantage of government incentives. The data from the gateway can be used for existing buildings to obtain the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star label, and new buildings to earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design credits through the U.S. Green Building Council. 

 

The Power Xpert 200E gateway is engineered to be used as a data acquisition tool for serially communicating energy meters through an embedded web server or connect to Ethernet-based applications including enterprise management, demand response and smart grid programs. With the Eaton Digital Input Module, the Power Xpert 200E gateway can also monitor and water, air, gas, electric, and steam meters, so customers can monitor energy usage patterns and identify opportunities for efficiency and improvements. No software is required to access energy data, yet the data is importable into other systems. 

 

The Power Xpert 200E gateways can be used with the Power Xpert Energy Viewer, a free software download. The Power Xpert Energy Viewer provides a simple way to gather key energy parameters and display them in easy-to-read reports to make informed power management decisions.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
