LED Retrofit Downlight Luminaire (LRD) by LumenOptix
LumenOptix’s LED Retrofit Downlight Luminaire, or LRD, is a unique and modular LED retrofit solution that enables a downlight of any make, model, or size to enjoy an upgrade in just minutes to energy-efficient, maintenance-free LED technology. Ideal for atriums, lobbies, airports, auditoriums, and most other retrofit applications where downlights are used, the LRD delivers up to 70% energy savings and secures to the existing, installed rough-in kit via its patent-pending modular bracket system. As a function of its efficient optics and proprietary LED reflector design, the LRD offers outstanding visual acuity, optimized cut-off, precise beam control, exceptional light quality, and consistent and glare-free light distribution. The LRD is free of environmental hazards such as mercury and has provisions for dimming capabilities down to 10% via 0 to 10 V or line dimming. Also, the LRD fixture can be easily installed into existing wired rough-in kits from below the ceiling in just minutes, reducing labor costs and concerns.
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.
