High-bay ceiling light
Global Lighting Technologies has developed a high-brightness luminaire for high-bay recessed ceiling light applications.
Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) Inc. has used its advanced LED-based edge lighting technology in conjunction with Advanced Thermal Devices’ (ATD) Loop Heat Pipe heat dissipation technology to develop a high-brightness luminaire for use in high-bay recessed ceiling light applications. The ceiling light offers 17,000 usable lumens at a rated power of 300 W and a color temperature of 4,000 to 5,000 K. Slim and lightweight for a luminaire of its power and performance, it is ideal for a range of indoor applications such as theaters, auditoriums, convention centers, large open office spaces, parking garages, and warehouses. The luminaire measures 23.6 x 23.6 x 4.5 in., weighs 37 lbs., and is waterproof. For illumination, it incorporates a light guide plate (LGP) from Global Lighting Technologies edge-lit by high-brightness LEDs spaced along the edge of the LGP.

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.
