Integrated variable speed motor control
Grundfos' unified MLE motor is suited for new commercial HVAC/R applications and deep retrofits and is available in models, ranging from end-suction to inline to split-case pumping solutions.
Grundfos' unified MLE motor is suited for new commercial HVAC/R applications and deep retrofits, and features ranges of 3 to 30 hp for building services. Grundfos will make the unified MLE motor and variable frequency drive (VFD) available in multiple models, ranging from end-suction to inline to split-case pumping solutions. For decades, Grundfos has manufactured its own MLE motors to match its energy‐optimized, high performing pumps. Now Grundfos is expanding that effort to include motors sizes that are well suited to HVAC/R applications. These Grundfos products provide a systems approach, which, through intelligent technology, adapts precisely to current demand to deliver performance, energy efficiency, and reliability. The integrated, energy‐optimized MLE system consists of a sensor, system controller, VFD drive, and standard asynchronous motor all in one.

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.
