The Mercmaster III induction light fixture is now available in a 165-W version, expanding the current product line’s 55- and 85-W lamping options. Rated for NEC Class I Division 2 locations, the new fixture delivers 100,000 hours of labor-saving, virtually maintenance-free operation. This endurance makes it ideal for hard-to-reach locations or hazardous environments where lamp servicing presents a possible safety hazard.
The light fixture features rugged construction and corrosion-resistant materials. It is well suite for a wide range of industrial, chemical processing and refining operations where flammable gases and vapors are present, as well as non-hazardous locations subject to extreme weather, excessive moisture, dirt and corrosive elements. It operates safely in temperature ranges from -50 C to 40 C, and provides excellent lamp depreciation with 70% of initial lumen output even after 60,000 hours.

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.
