Integrated outdoor sensor
The FSP-211 Digital High/Low Passive Outdoor Sensor by WattStopper is designed to control lighting and has a motion-based multi-level control.
WattStopper’s rugged FSP-211 Digital High/Low Passive Infrared Fixture Integrated Outdoor Sensor is designed to conveniently control lighting in areas such as parking facilities, gas stations, pedestrian pathways, and warehouses. The sensor mounts in a lighting fixture and provides motion-based multi-level control combined with optional hold off daylighting control. Its unique feature set provides the flexibility to quickly and easily customize control parameters for each project to ensure energy savings while addressing security concerns. All parameters are adjustable via a wireless configuration tool capable of storing and transmitting multiple sensor profiles. The sensor is engineered for use in LED fixtures. The FSP-211 also works with fluorescent lighting, including 0 to 10 V dimmable ballasts. When installed in an outdoor fixture, it is IP66 rated, impervious to dust and powerful water jets. A choice of four lenses ensures complete coverage for mounting heights ranging from 8 to 40 ft, making the sensor suitable for virtually any application.
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.
