The Cyberex IR Port by Thomas & Betts Power Solutions is a hexagonal portal with up to a 12.6-sq-in. expanded viewing aperture diameter and has a polymer construction. The polymer material provides great structural integrity for a larger portal size. The Cyberex IR Port is integrated into data center equipment for visual monitoring of power connections and terminations. Its integration eliminates the need to shut down for inspection and the need to remove panels, which reduces the risk of arc flash incidents. The Cyberex IR Port also includes drawings and information about critical connections behind the portal to use as a reference for scanning.

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.
