Fan assist module
The PowerAire Quad fan assist module by Tate manages cooling requirements for dense server racks and blades.
Tate’s PowerAire Quad fan assist module uses four fans connected in parallel to provide built-in redundancy. The PowerAire Quad effectively manages the cooling requirements for dense server racks and blades. It provides a blast of cooling through the DirectAire airflow panel. PowerAire Quad is 4 in. deep, making it ideal for retrofit situations with finished floor heights as low as 7.5 in. Equipped with variable-speed fan drives, all four fans can be throttled up or down based on heat-load requirements. This makes PowerAire Quad an ideal solution for cooling the toughest hot spots in a data center. PowerAire is easy to install in retrofit applications or as part of a new, advanced cooling strategy. PowerAire Quad also features zero maintenance, high precision, and quick response temperature measurement, and viewable peak temperature for walkthrough check of each rack.

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.
