LED directional downlights
The A4144 medium beam directional/slope ceiling downlight by Kurt Versen is designed for MultiSource capability.
The A4144 medium beam directional/slope ceiling downlight by Kurt Versen is designed to be MultiSource capable, provided with plug-and-play connectors that allow field conversion to PAR LED, MR-16 metal halide, and other remote phosphor LED sources from below the ceiling. The A4144 primary reflector provides a clean, soft pattern that can be adjusted in the field from a medium distribution to either wide (A4142) or narrow (A4146) by replacing the screw-based reflector. The lower cone is keyed to the LED optical system for precise alignment when aiming. The unique optical system is designed to optimize performance and control brightness for LED lighting.
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.
