Carlo Gavazzi Inc. announces the WM40-96 Smart Modular Power Analyzer. This energy meter can measure electrical variables, such as current, voltage, power, energy, and harmonics when parameters analysis, control, data stamping, and retransmission must be very accurate. It is a compact modular basic unit with plug-in modules that can save space in the back side of control doors and switchgears. This unit has a keypad and display with five rows of measurements and a bar-graph power demand indicator. Options include front optical communication port, serial, Ethernet, and BACnet communication. The unit can also measure temperature and process signals.
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.
