Emergency lighting control devices
Schneider released three emergency lighting control solutions.
Schneider Electric has three emergency lighting control solutions: the UL924 Emergency Lighting Control Relay, the UL924 Emergency Lighting Control Relay with Panel Mount, and the UL924 Emergency Lighting Dimmer Control. The UL924 Emergency Lighting Control products offer a versatile, simple, and energy-efficient solution that enables standard, existing fixtures to also be used for emergency lighting applications, saving the costs associated with the installation of additional emergency lighting fixtures. Also, the emergency lighting control devices require less maintenance and fewer testing requirements than backup batteries require because they comply with the UL924 standard, reducing installation time.
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.
