Energy Management System
Schneider Electric’s comprehensive in-room Cassia Energy Management System for hotels and multi-tenant buildings increases energy efficiency and guest comfort.
Schneider Electric has announced the launch of the Cassia Energy Management System (EMS), an intuitive in-room energy solution for hotels and other multi-unit facilities that maximizes operating efficiencies while enhancing the level of guest comfort and experience. Estimated to save up to 44% in energy costs per year, the Cassia EMS uses room automation and energy monitoring software to increase efficiencies in three areas of major consumption: heating, cooling, and lighting.
From installation to day-to-day operation, the Cassia EMS offers facility owners innovative ways to eliminate energy waste and other associated costs. The system uses a graphically rich, customizable software interface that provides real-time energy monitoring and reporting tailored to the needs of the facility. In each room, battery-powered thermostats, lighting controls, and sensors are deployed and communicate via Zigbee state-of-the-art wireless technology. Since the components of the in-room system use wireless technology, a simple, nonintrusive retrofit of equipment can be accomplished with quick installation turnaround times. This offers owners the benefit of a continued revenue stream in addition to a rapid return on investment.

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.
