Eaton’s Pow-R-Line lighting panelboards integrate the Eaton IQ35M meter to the panelboard, with a height similar to traditional lighting panels. This entire panelboard is metered with current transformers and wiring, and the factory wiring of the meter eliminates field installation. The IQ35M monitors voltage, current, power factor, and frequency, as well as real, reactive, and apparent power and energy. This device allows the user to verify energy bills, make informed load shifting and shedding decisions, allocate energy costs, and produce an energy profile.
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.
