Fire alarm control panels
Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell has modernized two of its addressable fire alarm control panels.
Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell has modernized two of its addressable fire alarm control panels with installer-requested features to reduce installation/maintenance time and enhance the systems' capabilities and life span. Version 3 of the MS-9200UDLS and MS-9050UD panels support more notification and ancillary devices while allowing for longer wire runs using most styles of wire. With fire alarm voice evacuation becoming more prevalent in the U.S. market, the number of speakers and strobes required has increased dramatically, creating a need for higher-capacity systems. On both panels, the addition of a second annunciator circuit, commonly used to tie in remote annunciators, printers, and more, allows for double the number of ancillary devices and double wire lengths that can be run in different directions using nearly any type of wire. A quick-remove chassis on both panels allows electronics to be removed from the backbox during the initial construction phase.

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.
