Keeping enclosures cool is white paper topic
Rittal report looks at ways to keep electronics from overheating
The modern business environment has transformed energy efficiency from a luxury sought after by so-called "green businesses" into a necessity for all operations that need to find ways to increase energy and cost savings without hurting productivity. Tightening budgets demand that ways be found to do more with less.
Sophisticated, sensitive electronics and drives are the backbone of many industrial applications and this equipment is often placed inside enclosures to protect it from the rugged environments it is deployed in. Depending on the surrounding temperature and other ambient conditions, it is imperative that these enclosures be cooled to ensure the proper performance of installed components and avoid heat-related downtime.
Rittal White Paper 303: Energy Efficient Enclosure Climate Control discusses tips for cooling industrial enclosures that can reduce energy consumption and save money by guiding readers through the various stages of creating energy efficient climate control solutions. Selecting products of the correct type and cooling output, optimized panel design, enclosure and climate control placement, routine maintenance and other helpful topics for boosting efficiency are all covered.

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.
