Heat pumps with wireless HVAC protocol
The Mitsubishi Electric P-series split-ductless and ducted heat pumps will incorporate Honeywell's RedLINK wireless HVAC protocol.
Mitsubishi Electric announces that its P-Series split-ductless and ducted heat pumps will incorporate Honeywell’s RedLINK wireless HVAC protocol. The RedLINK-enabled split-ductless system is designed to maximize comfort and reduce energy costs. The wireless controllers can be placed in a different room than the indoor units, and no wires need to run through walls. A portable central controller will allow climate control of up to 16 zones from anywhere in the building. The control system will feature complete zone control, adjustable fan speed, and vane positioning.
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.
